Red Hot Chili Peppers Announce Return of the Dream Canteen – Second Double-Album For 2022

Red Hot Chili Peppers Return of the Dream Canteen

In stunning news, Cali rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed more new music is on the way for 2022. After just releasing double-album Unlimited Love (our review here) a few months ago and embarking on a massive world tour, the tube-sock aficionados seem to have A LOT more where that came from. Overnight, they shared the name of their second double-LP Return of the Dream Canteen, set for release on October 14 via Warner Bros.

With Red Hot Chili Peppers slated to tour Australia with Post Malone early next year, they’re certainly going to have a battle choosing a setlist with two double-albums to choose from – not to mention the classics that gig goers demand. Perhaps the return of John Frusciante got the creative juices flowing as the band’s statement shares they couldn’t stop writing new material.

Read the full social media statement from Red Hot Chili Peppers below:

We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been. Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining. With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream. When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’ is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It’s packed. Made with the blood of our hearts, yours truly, the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

In a live video below, you can see Flea announce the record as well as lead-single ‘Tip of my Tongue‘. There’s no studio release of the song or tracklist yet or but bookmark this page and we’ll keep you updated.
