Red Hot Chili Peppers Ditch Album Trilogy Idea

The RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS had planned to make their eagerly awaited new album a trilogy to be released in three six-month installments, before deciding the ambitious idea would delay fans hearing the new material.

The Californian band have instead decided to release STADIUM ARCADIUM as a double album in April (06).

Singer ANTHONY KIEDIS tells website NME.com, "The third record made it interesting for us, because two records have been done in different configurations. SYSTEM (OF A DOWN) did it. GUNS N' ROSES did something similar, but three seemed sort of special, and we really got behind this idea until we realised that the third record wouldn't really be coming out for two years.

"It was like, 'This music needs to be heard now,' and two years from now we'll have new songs."
