Van Halen
Hits Daily Double claims that Van Halen recently inked a deal with new label Columbia.

Previously, Van Halen had spent its entire 35-year career with Warner Bros. The band’s already completed new studio album — the first in 27 years to feature original singer David Lee Roth — is now expected to arrive early next year.

We have known for a while now that Van Halen was working on new shit. Yet, there has been virtually no info from Van Halen’s camp about an album or any tour plans.

Rumors have also suggested that the band pulled out of an Australian festival tour, which was scheduled to kick off later this month. By pulling out, Van Halen essentially killed the tour.

The forthcoming album was produced Ross Hogarth.
