Van Halen Planning New Album
Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth says that the band plan to begin work on a new studio album this summer but warns that it may take a while for the effort to be released, Blabbermouth reports.

"We are going to be getting together, not this month, at the end of June to start preparing for some new recording and some new songs," Roth said in an interview with Australian website FasterLouder.

Roth cautions that with the way the band works, it may take a long time for the new music to see the light of day.

"We plan ahead by about two-and-a-half years in advance, which sounds extravagant," Roth says, "(but) from the time you go, 'Let's start to write some songs,' until all of the machines of production and humanity kick in, things move achingly slow - achingly slow."

"Especially if you are art-centric, if you want something to last, it's going to take a long time to put it all together. Quick up is quick down. We know about one-hit-wonders and we know about fast, but it's about three years, it takes about three years."
