    VH Album DONE! per Melodicrock

    VAN HALEN - ALBUM DONE, BUT FULL EUROPEAN TOUR LESS LIKELY:
    In the interests of keeping starving Van Halen fans up to date with every little update possible, I offer today's humble update. Not much, but something at least while I sort out a few other things I have heard, but cannot yet confirm.

    Following my last update when it was mentioned EVH was not happy with all DLR vocals, I can now update that whatever those issues were, have been sorted and the album is finally done...mixed and completed.
    So that is great news of course. But with it comes no further information as to when we might finally get to see a release date announced or hear anything from it. I hear management is shopping for a deal (no word if anyone outside VH actually has a copy or has heard anything - I think not at this stage), but labels are being approached in search of a deal....and a BIG deal from what I was told!
    I'm told there is still hope to get the album released this side of Christmas, but that is certainly not for certain.
    Prior talk of an exclusive WalMart deal for the album is diminishing - I'm told the preference is one label for a worldwide deal.

    Now that's the good news. The same source that delivered this album news also told me that plans for the band touring Europe are less definite. There is an offer for the band to headline Download Festival in the UK next year, but other dates in Europe are still being looked at before they can commit to Download. And I'm told not to expect a full tour of Europe. The priority it seems will remain on US tour dates.

    Stay tuned as always...

    Old Faithful is a cone geyser located in Wyoming, in Yellowstone National Park in the United States. Intervals between eruptions can range from 45 to 125 minutes, averaging 66.5 minutes in 1939, slowly increasing to an average of 90 minutes apart today

    Ok this is great news if its true but can someone tell me if this is a normal approach for a band to complete a CD first then look for a deal or is it yet another example of how fragile this band is that there was no confidence in securing something until they had everything done & dusted?

    Help please!

    Suppose they didnt need a record company to fund the recording process so were able to complete the CD without interference. Now they can go out and find the best deal.

    Excellent, thank you very much. I'll keep tabs on this guy, I need a decent festival to go to next year.

    It is going to annoy me if they don't tour Europe. There are surely only so many times the same audience will keep paying out (a lot of people here said they won't) but hell I NEED TO SEE EDDIE VAN HALEN BEFORE I DIE. I know that dying is probably about 70 years off yet (I can dream can't I?) but I've seen Mike, Sammy & Gary...I need to see Roth and The King before they decide to give up the music game.
    If I told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what I've gone through over the last 20 odd years, what it took to finally get where I am, people just wouldn't fucking believe it. So it's pointless. I now realize that I can't change people's minds, and I really don't want to or need to try. I'm at peace with it, and that's all that matters. - Edward Van Halen
