David Lee Roth Says New Van Halen Material May Be Out In 18 Months

Van Halen fans might not have to wait too much longer for new music as the band could have something new by the middle of 2015, according to frontman David Lee Roth.

"I was up at Edward [Van Halen]'s house, maybe three days ago - just before I came here to the city - and we're starting to put music together," he told Jim Florentine in a recent interview. "Not to give away exactly what the package will be, it's gonna be about 18 months, I think."

Roth explained that the reasoning for planning so far in advance for the release of the new music is due to mapping out the entire album and subsequent tour.

"Oh, yeah, we're writing," he said. "I write lyrics routinely. It's a perishable skill. And the band plays together routinely, at least three times a week. They're up at Ed's place, routinely."
