New Van Halen Music on the Horizon?
A photo of Eddie Van Halen visiting a mastering studio in Los Angeles has surfaced (via Hennemusic), fueling speculation about possible activity in the Van Halen camp.

"Eddie Van Halen came by to visit Howie [Weinberg] at his studio," read the post on the Facebook page of the Howie Weinberg Mastering Studio.

Weinberg mastered Van Halen's 2012 album, "A Different Kind of Truth." The world renowned mastering engineer's resume includes 4 Grammy nominations, 4 TEC Awards, over 3000 releases, 200 Gold Records and an estimated quarter of a billion records sold.

Earlier this year, reports indicated the band were actively working on new music.

In February, Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti confirmed activity when he was asked about new music from his solo project, Tremonti - which now includes bassist Wolfgang Van Halen.

"With Wolfgang in the band now," said the guitarist. "He does a lot of work with Van Halen right now, they're putting together a new album, so it's going to be hard to get everybody's schedules to line up."

Asked if Wolfgang has revealed much about how the new Van Halen material sounds, Tremonti replied, "You know, he doesn't. He just says, 'Yeah, sounds great, man. Sounds great.'"

A few months ago, frontman David Lee Roth revealed that he had been working on a secret Van Halen project.

"Doing some catching up here, a little bit of a scrapbook," said the singer. "We've been doing a lot of travelling. [I've been] working on a great Van Halen project - can't announce anything ... or I'd have to come find you and swear you to secrecy."

At press time, there remains no official word from the Van Halen camp regarding an update on new music or further details about the project Roth referred to earlier this year.
