Red Hot Chili Peppers to Play Super Bowl Half Time Show
Red Hot Chili Peppers have been announced to play this year's Super Bowl half time show, NME reports. The band will join Bruno Mars as special guests at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Sunday February 2nd.

There has been no news yet on whether the band will use the event to debut songs from their upcoming album. Back in March of last year, drummer Chad Smith told Billboard that the Chilis were scheduled to start work on a new record in September 2013:

"We're probably looking at getting together in September and getting on a roll and starting to write songs for the next record. We always have little ideas percolating in jams and rehearsal warm-ups and sound checks and gigs."

Describing their songwriting process, Smith said: "Sometimes we bust into stuff ... We just kind of play whatever, so we always have those little tidbits. But we don't have any fully-formed songs until the four of us get in a room together. That's when the real writing process starts. So, yeah, we're looking at the fall."
