Numerous sources are reporting that we could be hearing a new Van Halen song next week. If you believe rumors, the single “Late Term” will be premiering this coming Tuesday, August 23. So why are we a tad skeptical that the first single off of Van Halen’s first album with David Lee Roth in 27 years will finally surface next week?
Well because if rumors were true, Van Halen would’ve already released a new album and would currently be touring around the world. But guess what, the new album still hasn’t been released yet and their only announced gig in 2011 just got canceled. Then again, Van Halen have been apparently beta testing new music with active rock bands. Plus, the “Get Ready…” message is still up on Dave Lee Roth’s website. Could a new Van Halen single actually come out next week? Possibly…but we aren’t holding our breath.
