The Chili Peppers are back and better than ever with a brand new music video.
From their latest album “I’m With You”, the four rockers really get their groove on in “Look Around”. The band is known to produce the most creative and visually stimulating videos around and this one is no exception.
The bassist Flea, who’s sporting turquoise hair these days, looks like he’s having the most fun, while lead singer Anthony Kiedis cradles a young child while doing the worm at one point.
Check out the music video below.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ hiatus will end next year, as drummer Chad Smith says the band will release a new album.
According to chartattack.com, Smith told Clash Magazine the band hope to have the follow-up to 2006′s Stadium Arcadium in stores by next October.
“We’re gonna write for a while, it usually takes us a while,” Smith told the magazine, saying he hoped the album would be out “maybe this time [next year].”
Thom Yorke recently gave bassist Flea a tape of electronic beats after the bassist played with Yorke’s live band earlier this year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Red Hot Chili Peppers are recording an electronic album.”You never know,” Smith told the magazine. “We’ve got songs with piano on them right now, so who knows.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis is bringing the story of his unconventional childhood to HBO.
The series, tentatively titled “Scar Tissue,” will revolve around the singer’s experiences growing up in Los Angeles with his father Spider, a drug dealer who often hung out with rock stars.
“He introduced me to the arts, to a more culturally magnificent life,” Kiedis told Daily Variety.
“But some of it was this heavy, adult matter that I wasn’t quite capable of digesting. … It was a very rich but challenging period of my life. I was thrust into this adult mentality by age 11.”
One of the show’s producers contacted Kiedis about developing the project after reading the musician’s autobiography of the same name.
The Chili Peppers have been on hiatus since the end of their tour in support of 2006′s “Stadium Arcadium.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis and British pop singer Leona Lewis have been crowned the world’s sexiest vegetarians.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) bestowed the title on the two musicians following their annual online poll honouring celebrities for their lifestyle choice.
“I am vegetarian so I don’t have clothes, shoes or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products. … I’m on a mission,” Lewis, 23, is quoted as saying on peta.org.
Kiedis, 45, said he went vegan after learning about the worldwide depletion of fish in the oceans, as well as a doctor’s recommendation of a healthy vegan diet for his son.
“Soon after I [went vegan] I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows …. It sealed the deal,” Kiedis added.
Others in the running this year included Casey Affleck, Emily Deschanel and Andre 3000, while past winners include Carrie Underwood, Chris Martin and Tobey Maguire.
