Mark Tremonti (Creed/Alter Bridge) says that Van Halen are busy working on new music which is preventing friend and Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen from working with Tremonti in his solo band.
“With Wolfgang in the band now, he does a lot of work with Van Halen right now, they’re putting together a new album, so it’s going to be hard to get everybody’s schedules to line up. You know, he doesn’t [say how the music is going]. He just says, ‘Yeah, sounds great, man. Sounds great.”
David Lee Roth confirmed last year the band’s intention to record a new record to follow on from the well received A Different Kind of Truth which was released in 2012. That record was an collection of songs which could be traced back to the band’s earliest days.
