Red Hot Chili Peppers reveal The Getaway title track

Red Hot Chili Peppers

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed the title track from 11th album The Getaway.

The follow-up to 2011’s I’m With You is launched on June 17 via Warner Bros. The band streamed their song Dark Necessities earlier this month.

Frontman Anthony Kiedis suffered a health alert ahead of a concert last week, and was later diagnosed with intestinal flu. Drummer Chad Smith later said: “His stomach was killing him – it was really scary. He’s a very strong man and he’ll be back better than ever.”

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are gearing up for a European tour, which ends at the UK’s Reading and Leeds festivals in August.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
