Red Hot Chili Peppers Update

It has been five years since the Red Hot Chili Peppers released their last album, Stadium Arcadium. While it has probably taken that long to make radio stations stop playing “Dani California” every two hours, it has been quite a long layoff nonetheless.

Alot has happened since then, and it’s time for a timeline update on everyone’s favorite band:

December 2009: All-world guitarist John Frusciante tells the press that he left the band in 2008 on amicable terms. This is the second time he has left the band, as he was also absent for a good chunk of the 90s.

January 2010: Josh Klinghoffer is confirmed as the new guitarist for the band, and plays a benefit show with the group. Klinghoffer is Frusciante’s close friend, and toured with the band in 2006.

July 2010: The Peppers began recording their tenth studio album.

June 5: The band’s re-launched website announced that the new album, titled I’m With You, will be released on August 30.

June 12: The official website announced the track list for I’m With You.

So, now that you are all caught up on the Red Hot Chili Peppers and salivating at the mouth for the new material and possible tour dates, I’ll announce another tidbit of information: Air Core Yell will post a detailed list of the 100 best Red Hot Chili Peppers songs during the week of the I’m With You album release. It will be the most concise and official-sounding RHCP song list ever made.

Have a red hot summer.
