Red Hot Chili Peppers to start work on new album later this year

Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to start working on their next album in September, according to the band's drummer Chad Smith. 

The band, whose career spans a lengthy 30 years and 10 studio albums, will meet later this year to develop track ideas into something that can be recorded for their next LP. Talking to Billboard, Chad Smith said that the band want to "get on a roll" in September and start writing songs for the next record.

"We always have little ideas percolating in jams and rehearsal warm-ups and soundchecks and gigs" he said. 

"Sometimes we bust into stuff... We just kind of play whatever, so we always have those little tidbits. But we don't have any fully-formed songs until the four of us get in a room together." 

The band have been touring non-stop since September 2011, following the release of their 10th studio album 'I'm With You'. Since then, their only new music has come in the form of outtakes from the album's recording sessions. The ongoing release consists of 18 tracks in total, which the band have been releasing as digital downloads and on vinyl in pairs. 

The latest track is the 8-minute long 'In Love Dying', which you can hear below. You can download 'I'm With You' from ShopTo now.

That's is awesome news. Still one of the greatest bands ever to perform.

They are a personal favourite and I got to see them live for the first time last year. Fan biases aside, it was one of the best live shows I have ever been to and will probably stay up there for a long time. Josh has been getting some unfair hate since he joined, but he fits right in on stage; he is a brilliant performer.

I saw their big Hyde Park gig a few years back. It is up there as probably the greatest gig I have ever seen. Even after their hiatus, they deliver constantly high quality stuff. A new album will be really welcome.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
