The longtime Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith, is the first to announce that Anthony Keidis, Flea, John Frusciante and Chad himself will be returning as the Red Hot Chili Peppers coming soon this October. The Chili Peppers had a very long hiatus from the music business since 2006’s “Stadium Arcadium” (the album came out in 2006, not 2005 that Billboard made their mistake on). Chad Smith will be a very busy guy this fall/winter since he will be working with the Chili Peppers again, he’s in Chickenfoot, and now he’s in a third band called the Bombastic Meatbats.
Chad says the Chili Peppers have been talking about going back into the studio to record a new album but haven’t decided on a producer yet and everything else. Of course, a full fledged Chili Peppers tour will probably follow the new album as well.
It’s about time. I’ve always loved the Chili Peppers. Getting excited for the Chilli Peppers return this fall.
I still think “By the Way” was the best new Chili Peppers album so far. “Stadium Arcadium” was okay but hopefully their next album will be a really good one.
