World premiere of new album ‘I’m With You’ to be held at London’s Zigfrid Von Underbelly from 5.30pm tonight
Full online album playback commences at 8pm at www.redhotchilipeppers.com
Red Hot Chili Peppers will premiere their new album ‘I’m With You’ tonight with a unique launch that encompasses an event at Zigfrid Von Underbelly as well as a full album playback which will be streamed live via the band’s official website www.redhotchilipepepers.com. This represents the first time that fans will be able to hear ‘I’m With You’ in its entirety ahead of its full release on August 29th.
Doors for the launch event at Zigfrid Von Underbelly (11 Hoxton Square, N1) open at 5.30pm. Radio 1 Rock Show host and Hexes / ‘A’ / Bloodhound Gang musician Daniel P. Carter will commence proceedings with a DJ set before the album playback commences at 8pm. Entry to the event is free with doors opening at 5.30pm. Given the venue’s limited capacity, the album will be replayed until 11pm to allow as many fans to hear it as possible.
In addition, the event will be filmed and streamed live through the band’s official website at www.redhotchilipeppers.com complete with full quality album audio. Please note that the band will not be in attendance.
Recorded at East West In Los Angeles and Shangri-la in Malibu, CA, ‘I’m With You’ was produced by Rick Rubin, who has produced the band’s previous five albums, 2006’s ‘Stadium Arcadium’, 2002’s ‘By The Way’, 1999’s ‘Californication’, 1995’s ‘One Hot Minute’, and 1991’s ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’. The album was mixed by Andrew Scheps and Greg Fidelman.
