Red Hot Chili Peppers - Red Hot Chili Peppers Discuss New Album

Red Hot Chili Peppers have been discussing the inspiration behind their new album I'm With You.
I'm With You will be the 10th studio album by the Los Angeles rockers and features new single The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie, it also features Brendan's Death Song which lead vocalist Anthony Kiedis explains that the track is a tribute to promoter and long-time friend of the band Brendan Mullen. "He was a true pioneer in the avant-punk rock-music scene of Hollywood in the late '70s, for the purest and most beautiful of reasons. His job was to create a place and space for a new music to exist and a new scene to exist, and he did that by starting a club called the Masque, a basement club on Hollywood Boulevard" said Kiedis speaking to Mtv.com, adding "He lit the match. And then he never lost that love and that enthusiasm for art and music and literature and people and kind of an underground scene; he kept that alive in his heart until the day he died."
Formed in Los Angeles 1983 the Red Hot Chili Peppers have achieved international critical and commercial success with their unique funk rock sound. They have won seven Grammy awards as well as selling over 65 million albums worldwide.
