The legendary rockers also shared an image with a February 7, 2012 date, but it was unknown if it was the album cover and release date, or something else. Read more on the first set of official VH news here.
Now, the Van Halen News Desk is reporting on the band’s schedule, and the pieces of the puzzle are being filled in. Jan 3 - concert dates & cities for first wave of 2012 tour announced; Jan 10 – first single premiere, – first music video premiere, – tickets for first series of 2012 concerts go on sale; Feb 7 – new album released.
As for the new album’s title, it remains under wraps. This week’s official band announcement referenced the subject as “The Future,” but the VHND reports that is not the actual name of the album. No word, yet, on whether or not the February 7 image, which features a train, represents the album’s cover.
More confirmed details are expected to follow in the coming days. Produced by Ross Hogarth, the new record will be the band’s first with David Lee Roth since 1984 (the year and album).
