That’s what Van Halen fan site Van Halen News Desk is saying. We already know that tickets will be going on sale for their upcoming tour on January 10th, and now the site says that’s also when the single will be unleashed. Allegedly, the cities and dates for the first leg of the tour will be announced on Tuesday, January 3rd. One week later, the single and video will hit the air as the tickets go on sale, and the album will come out on February 7.
There’s still little known about the album, which has allegedly been finished since last summer. Apparently, the footage of the band playing in the teaser trailer for the tour was filmed at the Roxy in Los Angeles and is taken from the first video, even though the songs in the trailer aren’t new. The image also came from the Van Halen News Desk, and is apparently the album cover. Regardless of whether the album, the first with David Lee Roth since 1984 (which ironically came out on the last day of 1983), is good or not, it’s nice to see the band finally got off their collective asses and made a record.
