    Default Are We Really Any Closer?

    I think it was last August or so that DLR mentioned that it would be about a year and a half before we got a new album and/or possible tour.

    Has anyone made any kind of mention along those lines since then? We're about the half way mark. If this is true, I'd guess they are probably recording new music?

    PART ONE:
    Do you mean 'do we still have a year and a half to go?' Nope.
    Do you mean 'has a year and a half finished in merely 8 months?' Nope.

    PART TWO:
    Do you mean 'has the band mentioned any other timeline other than the one they already mentioned?' Nope.

    PART THREE:
    >If this is true, I'd guess they are probably recording new music?

    Is that a question asking if you think they are probably recording new music? o_O huh?

    Or do you mean 'are they recording new music *now*?'

    Roth said in his podcast last month that he was working on a new Van Halen project. Also according to Roth, he and EVH supposedly wrote together last year when Roth was in the US. I believe Wolf said that VH has since recorded together.


    The general consensus 'round these parts seems to be that we are looking at Christmas 2014/New Years or spring 2015.


    And that's the way it is ...May 31th, 2014.

    They have over 20 songs, two cds worth. Maybe we'll get a double CD.

    From an Eddie interview about two years ago:

    At the same time I was writing new songs.

    Dave got very excited about that. We all did. We ended up recording demos for 35 songs. All of those songs were ready to go, and we were able to play them all.

    We called John again and asked, “Are you busy? Do you want to come up and take a listen?” He was like, “Whoa! You’ve got a shitload of songs here!"

    How sad.

    As fans, we resort to speculating in this manner and trying to pinpoint the exact month. VH laughs at us....

    Well Dave said 18 months which meant early next year. Should we expect to hear something at this point? Not necessarily anyone than we've already heard. Dave has been dropping hints a few times now, so it's not like a one time comment.

    I would expect a tour and new music next year. That would go along with the 3 year "James Bond" timeline that Dave kept talking about as well as the 18 month one that he mentioned more recently.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I expect nothing from this band. It allows me to rarely be disappointed.

    Man....with the attitude some of you guys have you'd swear we didn't have two tours and a kick-ass album in the last 6 years.

    Since Dave and Wolf joined the band, they have done everything they've talked about. Dave hasn't been "muzzled" as he's so often occused. In fact, he's got his own YouTube show and has done multiple interviews where he's stated that VH is working on something and given us a timeline.

    If 2015 passes and there's nothing on the VH front, then you can resume with the pissing and moaning about being a battered VH fan. But for now, times are good, so enjoy it.

    Um.. No sir. I respectfully disagree.

    Dave was certainly "muzzled" in 2007. Glad he isn't now, but he doesn't really say anything. Be it on a radio show, interview or his show.

    At this age, a year is like dog years to these guys and their considerable, legendary talents are waning..

    There is no excuse for not putting out old, classic music. Be it old shows, demo's, fuck anything us loyal fans would appreciate.
    Literally a couple months or mixing and it's done. Call Jimmy Page if you need help.

    As far as new music, we can only assume they don't want to...
    As far as a tour, we can only assume they don't want to...

    Yes, I'm whining, but I'm right.. Wish the band would prove me wrong

    Yeah, but these guys are getting old. We all hope for multiple albums in the future. Every year that passes is potentially 1 less album we'll ever hear.
    Right here I say....

    That's my fear. Eddie's already gone through the cancer scare (twice?). Lord knows the amount of abuse Dave and Al put their bodies through, and how long till something breaks. 2012 was the only time I'd ever seen an on-fire, sober Ed play guitar the way he's supposed to. I really want to see that at least one more time.
