Red Hot Chili Peppers Likely Headed Into The Studio This Fall
After nearly two years of touring in support of their half-million-selling tenth album I’m With You, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are finally winding down and may soon book some studio time to work on new material.
“We’re probably looking at getting together in September and getting on a roll and starting to write songs for the next record,” drummer Chad Smith told Billboard.
Smith elaborated that the band won’t have any “fully formed songs until the four of us get together in a room together.” At this point, Smith says they just have little “tidbits” and “ideas percolating.”
Before the Los Angeles foursome can settle down and hit the studio, they’ll check off a few more festival performances including San Francisco’s Outside Lands and Metallica’s Orion Festival, taking over Belle Isle Park in Smith’s home town of Detroit on June 8.
