Call them overrated and kind of same-y but don’t call funk-rock mob the Red Hot Chili Peppers lazy. The spazzy Cali combo – recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - has confirmed they'll be releasing an impressive 18 new singles over the next six months.
The tracks, recorded during the band's sessions for their 2011 studio album I'm With You, will arrive as nine double A-side 7'' singles over the next six months beginning August 11 with the songs "Strange Man" and "Long Progression" followed September 11 by the songs "Magpies" and "Victorian Machinery," according to the NME.
The magazine quotes the band's guitarist Josh Klinghoffer as saying, "Some songs seem to have a lot more of an agenda than others. Some songs play well with others and some songs need more attention and a little extra care.
"Here are some songs that seemed to want to pair up and take a later train. Keep your eye on them, they're up to something."
