Following drummer Chad Smith
's confirmation that the Red Hot Chili Peppers
are working on a new album, the first video to show the gang getting it on in the studio has surfaced.
Not exactly a colossal update, but the clip clearly shows Chad
and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer
busy in the studio, writing, grooving and head-bopping to the cropped-up piece of music in the background.
"It's only been a couple of months, so we're just starting to write and get in the groove of things,
" Smith previously told Billboard. "This is my favorite time, being creative, coming up with ideas. You go there at 11 o'clock with something that wasn't a piece of music, everyone collaborates on something, three hours later you've got something that's a piece of music that wasn't there before
Although the specific musical direction still remains unknown, Chad noted that the group is "always trying to change and grow and do new stuff. So we don't make the record that we made three years ago, we're gonna make something different. And you never know what that is going to be.
The band's latest studio effort, "I'm With You
," saw its release in August 2011 via Warner Bros.
