Red Hot Chili Peppers have a storied history of taking its time between releases. (For reference: Last year’s I’m With You followed up 2006’s Stadium Arcadium which followed up 2002’s By the Way. So, four to five years give or take.) Yet, according to a recent tweet by Flea, the band has “been writing stuff while touring” and will “put out 18 new songs over the next 6 months on 7 inch and digi.”

The news from Flea follows another tweet by drummer Chad Smith, who indicated that the band has at least 10 more B-sides off I’m With You to release. According to Exclaim.ca, singer Anthony Kiedis also weighed in, though not on Twitter but at a recent gig in Grand Rapids, MI, where he announced, “We got a storm of seven-inches coming out over the next six months. Keep one eye open.”

As Kiedis instructs, stay tuned as this story develops. In the meantime, check out a live performance of “Brendan’s Death Song” below, followed by the band’s current itinerary.

Dear RHCP. The time for you to stop making music was 12 years ago. Please heed my advice and just stop.
