Looks like those rumors that VAN HALEN was recording an album with original frontman DAVID LEE ROTH may actually be true. Billboard reports that a press release from the band's publishing company states that the band "is currently in the studio recording an album with Roth that is due for release in 2011." In addition, Billboard reports that Van Halen's manager, IRVING AZOFF, said in a conference call last week that Van Halen was expected to tour next year. The band's 2008 reunion tour grossed over 93 million bucks.
If Van Halen does, indeed, release a new album, it'll be the band's first with Roth since the smash hit 1984, which came out in 1983, and its first studio album overall since 1998's Van Halen III, which is the band's only studio album to feature singer GARY CHERONE.
There's nothing about a possible album or tour on the band's official website. In fact, the most recent post in the News section is a Happy New Year message from December 29th, 2009.
