Return of the Dream Canteen coming October 14th on Warner Records
Last night at Empower Field in Denver, Anthony Kiedis and Flea announced that the Red Hot Chili Peppers have a brand new studio album in the can.
And not only is it the group’s second LP to come out in 2022, it is yet another double album like its predecessor Unlimited Love, which came out in April. Entitled Return of the Dream Canteen, it will be released October 14th on Warner Records and once again produced by the one and only Rick Rubin.
“We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been,” the band, rounded out by drummer Chad Smith and returning champion guitarist John Frusciante. “Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining.
“With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers will continue the tour through California with a special hometown performance in Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, then through Chicago, Toronto, and more before wrapping up the North American leg in Arlington, TX on Sunday, September 18th at Globe Life Field. A roll call of some of the most acclaimed, eclectic and vital artists across various genres – including HAIM, Beck, Thundercat, The Strokes, King Princess, St. Vincent and Post Malone – will be joining the band on select dates.
