Van Halen is working on new music. Guitarist Eddie Van Halen shared a photo from a recording studio on his Facebook page, Monday. That sparked rumors that the band was looking to record new music.
Eddie son, bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, confirmed that Van Halen is bouncing around ideas for new music. He tells Billboard:
"Oh yeah, there's plenty of other ideas laying around, and some new stuff that we've been working on, too. You never know what'll happen."
After cancelling the second leg of their 2012 and dealing with Eddie'e emergency surgery that sidelined him for months, Van Halen has already announced that they will play a handful of shows in 2013.
Wolfgang also has plans beyond Van Halen. He's currently working with Creed/Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti on his solo project and he wants to do more, I feel like it's just kind of open-ended. It's all the same to me. It's just doing what I love."
