    Default New album in works?

    http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/van...mark-tremonti/

    It's been pretty quiet on the VAN HALEN front lately but we've now found out why – they're working on a new album. ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti broke the news when he was telling VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner about how new music is coming along with his solo band, TREMONTI, which includes VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen.

    Said Mark: "With Wolfgang in the band now, he does a lot of work with VAN HALEN right now, they're putting together a new album, so it's going to be hard to get everybody's schedules to line up."

    When VH1 Radio Network asked Tremonti if Wolfie tells him how the new VAN HALEN music is sounding, Mark said: "You know, he doesn't. He just says, 'Yeah, sounds great, man. Sounds great.'"

    After singer David Lee Roth said in an interview last summer that VAN HALEN has started work on its 13th studio album, the next question was whether the material will be freshly written or pulled from the band's vaults. Many of the songs on 2012's "A Different Kind Of Truth" originated from demos going back to the group's earliest days, and Wolfgang Van Halen told The Pulse Of Radio that there's more where that came from. "There's plenty of other ideas lying around and some new stuff that we've been working on too," he said. "You never know what'll happen."

    According to The Pulse Of Radio, Roth told comedian Jim Florentine back in August: "I was up at [guitarist] Edward's [Van Halen] house three days ago, and we're starting to put music together. We're writing; I write lyrics routinely and the band plays together routinely, at least three times a week up at Ed's place."

    But Roth also cautioned that fans should not expect to hear the finished follow-up to 2012's "A Different Kind Of Truth" for at least 18 months.

    "A Different Kind Of Truth" was the first new VAN HALEN album in 14 years and the first since 1984 to feature Roth, the band's original singer, on lead vocals.

    The disc debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart, selling 187,000 copies in its first week of release.

    The group toured through the spring and early part of the summer of 2012 behind the album, but abruptly pulled off the road that June due to "exhaustion." A severe intestinal disorder later sidelined Eddie Van Halen, restricting the band to only sporadic live shows since.

    ...although it's not "new" news, it's still nice to have confirmation.

    Hopefully a 2014 summer tour commitment will set in place a delivery deadline for the new record

    Hey Wolf, tell the old man to write a monstrous guitar solo intro track to open the new disc.

    This is what I said on VHND about this:

    Obviously, this is very exciting. We wonder though, if Wolfgang actually used the word “album.” A few months ago, David Lee Roth did indeed say that the band was beginning to work on new music. The world took that and ran, and websites everywhere began spreading the news of a “new album” that’s coming, even though Roth never promised a full album of material. We’re super excited about the possibility of more music from these guys, whether it would be a full album, just an EP of several songs, or just a couple tracks by themselves. Hopefully a full album! We’ll have to be patient and see what happens!

    my guess would be the end of the year we'd hear something at the earliest.

    I agree with Hide Your Sheep. They started recording ADKOT around January 2011 and we got our first news of new music and tour the following December. Unless they've really been working hard over the past year I'd expect an early 2015 release, at least for a full length album. Either way, awesome news!

    Hmmmm, new VH album or the Browns .500 or better by January 2015?

    Every time I think my love for Van Halen has faded, I read something like this and I feel the tingle in the nether regions and realize that it's been there all along.

    I know we're months away from hearing anything further, but I can't wait for the little snippets to be released/leaked again. I keep thinking about how everyone logged onto the Aussie iTunes site because they put up a 30 second sample of Tattoo before anywhere else in the world. We dissected that 30 seconds until there was nothing left. Then we got the measured snippets of all the other songs and we would salivate over every little detail....

    I'm looking forward to that again
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    The interview with Dave from last August or so mentioned that it takes VH 18 months or so to put an album together and start the promotion for it.

    Based on that, I think we're looking at about a year or so before we see any new music, album, whatever you care to call it.
