Red Hot Chili Peppers to return in October?

on July 31, 2009, 10:15am

“That’s the plan,” drummer Chad Smith has revealed in an interview with Billboard.com. “Everybody was like, ‘Y’know, I really like having this time off, not being a Chili Pepper and doing other things… It’ll be two years in September, so now we’re ready. You can’t force people to play when they don’t want to play or aren’t ready to play or whatever — not in our band, anyway.”

No word on what the Peppers have planned, but the followup to 2006’s Stadium Arcadium is believed to be in the works.

Until then, Smith will be finishing up a few more tour dates with his supergroup/side-project Chickenfoot, while also releasing the debut release of another side-project, Bombastic Meatbats.
