The Chilis Open "Stadium" Band plan to release ninth studio album in April The Red Hot Chili Peppers have dubbed their ninth studio album Stadium Arcadium, according to Flea, and they plan to release it in April. "It's very honest music, and I feel like we improved as craftsmen," said the bassist Friday at the Spike TV Video Game Awards in Los Angeles, where he and lead vocalist Anthony Kiedis were presenters. "We gave all we had to this album."
The follow-up to 2002's By the Way has been a long time in the making, as the Chili Peppers -- Kiedis, Flea, guitarist John Frusciante and drummer Chad Smith -- wrote and rehearsed for seven months before entering the studio with producer Rick Rubin.
The band is now in the mixing stage, but Flea said there's quite a lot to mix. "We recorded a huge quantity of music," he said. "We're so in the middle of it, so it's hard to step back and look at it, but we think it's the best stuff we've ever done."
na wenn das mal nicht reicht für den Einwurf in die Gerüchteküche! Was sagt ihr dazu ??!!

Die neue CD von den Red Hot Chili Peppers wird am 31. März 2006 in den Läden stehen, die internationale Presse wird schon Mitte Dezember in Los Angeles in die neuen Songs rein hören können. Die erste Single erscheint am 24. März.
In the new NME magazine there is an article on the Chili Peppers in the studio, so READ IT!
I'll sum up the key points:
- Album title: Stadium Arcadium.
- It's a double album containing a total of 25 songs
- First Single: Danni California
- Other tracks on the record: Hard To Concentrate, Desecration Smile, Charlie, Snow and Stadium Arcadium.
- Producer: Rick Rubin.
- Engineers: Ryan Hewitt and Andrew Schepps.
- Release date: April 2006.
In the new Q Magazine (February 2006), there's an article on the Must-Have Albums of 2006, and Stadium Arcadium is #1. If you have a scanner and got the article, a scan of it would be much appreciated, but so far, enjoy Moosha's transcription:
They Say: "It's heavy, but it's emotionally heavy with lots of beautiful melodies." - Anthony Kiedis
Holing up in producer Rick Rubin's Los Angeles mansion in mid-2004, a spurt of "good energy" saw them writing 38 songs. "We all contributed equally," says Kiedis. "That hasn't always been the case in the past."
Originally planning to put out three seperate albums, they instead opted for one 24-track double. Tracks set to appear include Snow (Kiedis: "About having a blank state to start your life over"), Animal Bar and Wet Sand ("About a complicated, dysfunctional woman I've fallen in love with").
The first single is Dani California, described by Kiedis as "warm, funky, with an uplifting chorus." It picks up the story of a character introduced in the title track of 2002's By The Way.
"This is where she meets her demise", he says. "There's something beautiful about things gone wrong. But it isn't a depressing record. It's actually all about the joy of dysfunction."
Expected: May 2006'
Ich finds ja aber trotzdem arm, dass die Single "Danni California" heißt, das Wort California haben die inzwischen echt totgekaut.
is doch völlig latte wie die songs heißen hauptsache sie sind gut
Red Hot Chili Peppers confirm final album details 'Stadium Arcadium' is out on May 8
Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced the final details surrounding the release of their new double album.
'Stadium Arcadium' will hit the shops on May 8 as the successor to 2002's 'By The Way'.
Originally conceived as a 38-song trilogy, 'Stadium Arcadium' will be a 24-track double LP with titles including the first single 'Dani California', which will precede the album.
Other songs set to feature are 'Snow', 'Animal Bar', 'Wet Sand', 'Charlie', 'Desecration Smile' and 'Hard To Concentrate'.
Speaking to NME.COM about the title of the release, singer Anthony Kiedis said: "'Stadium Arcadium', in the end it has a very dreamlike feeling of we on Earth reflecting the cosmos on the heavens, and we on Earth reflecting it because that's where our inspiration comes from. It's more romance of sound or whatever retarded passions exist in your soul. It's kind of a romantic affair."
The LP also marks the first time the band have managed three consecutive records with the same line-up, following the return of guitarist John Frusciante to the fold for 1999's 'Californication'.
However, Kiedis refuted the suggestion that this means the band had fully conquered their demons.
"It feels great, and I hope it stays that way, but I wouldn't say our troubles are all over. In some ways it's good to hold on to a few of your demons... I don't think our troubles are completely over. We're a bit bent in the head and I think that serves us well."
Red Hot Chili Peppers entered the studio last March with producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, [a]System Of A Down) to start work on 'Stadium Arcadium' and having played three shows at London's Hyde Park eighteen months ago to a total of 300,000 people, the band plan to return to the UK for a tour later this year.
Red Hot Chili Peppers To Release Different Versions Of Album In previous interviews, including ones with Q Magazine and NME, Anthony Kiedis has told about how the Red Hot Chili Peppers had 38 tracks and that 24 or 25 would be on the upcoming double album, Stadium Arcadium. "Slow Cheetah," "Storm in a Tea Cup," "Hard to Concentrate," "C'mon Girl," "Ready Made" and "Desecration Smile" are just a few of the titles that survived the process and will be on every copy of Stadium Arcadium. "I think we always [approach the songwriting process] with this mindset that this time, we're going to write the perfect 11 songs and just put out 11 songs like they used to do in the days of Buddy Holly and the Beatles. Those early records were so short and sweet, and had this kind of lasting profound impact on the world because they're very memorable and digestible and, I don't know, maybe it just takes less energy or effort to connect with smaller collections. But as has been the case with every single time we've tried to do that, we end up with 30 some-odd songs. The difference this time was we ended up liking all of those songs and finishing all of those songs and it actually became a very difficult process to even just whittle it down to 25. I think it's sort of the best thing that we've ever done, and I just want to get it out there on the airwaves and in the earholes of the world." said Anthony Kiedis. As previously announced, the first single & video will be for "Dani California". AK said the director of the video will be Tony Kaye, who directed "American History X." The video will be character driven about Dani the girl, who has made appearances on the previous 2 Chili Peppers albums. But what to do with the 12 or 13 songs that don't make the labum? Bonus tracks. Each retail site will get a different version of the album with a different "bonus song". Local, small record stores will get one, iTunes will get one, Wal Mart will get one, etc. "We're going to try and do that with the independent record stores across America, and for all the monster chains," he said. "We'll service everybody with a different bonus track, because we have them." According to the band's management company, Stadium Arcadium is due May 9 in the states.
