Red Hot Chili Peppers will release a series of 18 singles as digital and 7" vinyl releases.
Flea revealed the news to a fan on twitter, and said they will release the tracks written on tour over the next six months.
It was only a few days before that drummer Chad Smith said the band had at least 10 more B-sides to their last album "I'm With You" - perfect for fans who can't wait until their next LP, which could take four or five years to arrive.
The band are currently wrapping up the US leg of their world tour, and will skip across to Europe next. Don't fret, US readers - they'll be back in the states by September.
Meanwhile, a journalist has supposedly found the bridge from the seminal RHCP song "Under The Bridge". Singer Anthony Kiedis would never reveal its exact location, but after some detective work, Vulture magazine pinned it down to a bridge in MacArthur Park.
"It links Sixth and Union - the intersection Kiedis claims he was walking toward - with the drug dealers at Seventh and Hoover," wrote journalist Mark Haskell Smith. "And, unlike the other bridges [in the area], it provides a discreet location for private time with personal demons."
@_MattCave yes we have been writing stuff while touring. we are also going to put out 18 new songs over the next 6 months on 7 inch and digi
