This past weekend, while you may have been eating deep fried butter with Beer Mug at the O.C. Fair, the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Red Hot Chili Peppers[/lastfm] were in Japan headlining 2 nights at the Summer Sonic Festival. Their sets included new songs from their forthcoming album, I’m With You, which comes out August 29. Aside from some recent super secret shows it was the first time the new songs were played for the general public, and thanks to cocoao19 you now have the opportunity to treat your ears to ”Factory Of Faith.”

Next up for the Chili Peppers is the premiere of the first single off I’m With You, “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie.”  We’ll have it for you as soon as it goes live this week.

As for upcoming shows, they’re playing a benefit gig for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music on Wednesday, August 24 and then their world tour kicks off in September.  And, if you want to check them out at a super secret show, enter to win tickets into Kevin & Bean’s Breakfast with The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Deep fried butter not provided.  Good luck!

    … hmmmm so strange… its funky.. this guy adds a different dimension.. still do not know what to think… i guess i have been waiting for that signature chili guitar riff that we are all were pampered with ; John Frusciante

    What do the folks of KROQ think?

    this guitarist hasnt shown anything in the two new songs i heard. Seems like chili peppers are really missing john frusciante

      Respectfully but totally disagree, listen to how much space Flea’s been given to breathe again, hallelujah, I feel a bit of renaissance may be on the cards. Frusciante is brilliant and irreplaceable but he’s gone. Let Josh be Josh, no better or worse just different and as seeing’s John’s gone, vivre le difference!
