New Van Halen Album Now Rumored for Early 2012

For fans of Van Halen‘s original lineup, the band’s last three decades or so have been punctuated with more than a few frustrations and disappointments, including their brief reunion with David Lee Roth in 1996, bassist Michael Anthony’s rudely handled dismissal, and an overall lack of new music since a pair of new tracks were appended to the double-disc ‘Best of Both Worlds’ compilation way back in 2004.

Roth has been back in the band since 2006, with rumors of a new album persistently surfacing over the last five years. The buzz has grown louder than ever this year, and for awhile, it looked like this might finally be the year Van Halen came back — but it looks like we’ll have to keep on waiting.

The film, titled ‘Pearl Jam Twenty,’ is getting a hefty double-disc soundtrack that includes live tracks, demos, and assorted rarities from Pearl Jam’s vaults — and although it doesn’t come out until September 20, you can listen to the whole thing now.

What Are Rock’s Most Shocking Album Covers?

Being proudly provocative has always been part of rock ‘n’ roll — from the music’s earliest days, when simply shaking one’s hips on television was enough to send middle-aged Americans into a righteous lather, the formula for some of the best rock has been one part rhythm, one part volume, and one part shock.

This has also been true for album covers, which some of rock’s most forward-thinking performers have used as a platform to shock, disturb, annoy, and generate thought-provoking conversation (although not necessarily in that order). It’s a long rock ‘n’ roll tradition — one celebrated with a new list over at Ultimate Classic Rock.

It’s always hard for a sequel to recapture the excitement of whatever made the original great, but give Alice Cooper credit — he’s doing whatever he can to convince fans that his upcoming album, a sequel to his classic ‘Welcome to My Nightmare,’ is something special.

Cooper reunited with the original Alice Cooper Band for a few tracks on the new ‘Nightmare’ and even enlisted his old producer, Bob Ezrin. If that wasn’t enough, he’ll also release a deluxe “fanpack” edition of the sequel, titled ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare,’ that packs in a boatload of extras.
