Red Hot Chili Peppers have been crafting new songs for the past year or so. Front-man Anthony Kiedis tells Rolling Stone that they are “dying to play” them at their upcoming Silverlake benefit gig, but can’t because “every single human has a recording device on them at all times”.
This statement follows Kiedis’ thoughts on playing a benefit concert for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music that will take place on the evening of October 17 at a secret location in L.A. The band will be opening for John Legend with a short acoustic set, the first support slot they’ve done since opening for The Rolling Stones in the mid-nineties.
In 2014, RHCP bassist Flea described their upcoming songs as “super danceable, funky shit and some real introspective, pretty stuff”. As expected of the funk-rock foursome! There has been no mention of a release date for anything yet, so we’re just going to have to sit tight until we hear more.
