Red Hot Chili Peppers End 2-year Hiatus


In more band return news, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they will end their two-year hiatus this year.

The band plans on re-grouping in October to begin work on a new album (the follow-up to 2006’s two-disc Stadium Arcadium), though, according to the Pepper’s drummer Chad Smith, they are unsure of whom their producer will be.

"It'll be two years in September, so now we're ready.” Smith told Billboard. “You can't force people to play when they don't want to play or aren't ready to play or whatever – not in our band, anyway."

The band’s usual songwriting process is a mix of improvising and jamming. Through these sessions is where the Peppers plan to find material for their new album. “That's what we usually do. I don't know why it would be different,” explained Smith.
