Van Halen Readying New Album, Tour?


Van Halen are reportedly gearing up for a new album and world tour in 2011.

The as-yet-untitled new album, which will be out on Warner Bros. early in the year, will be the band’s first new material since 1998. The label is also planning on releasing some of Van Halen’s earlier works — including Van Halen II, Women and Children First and 1984 — on vinyl on Dec. 13.

No tour dates are available yet, but the band will reportedly make stops in North America, Australia and Europe. The line-up will consist of David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and Wolfgang Van Halen (Eddie’s son).
