It's time to celebrate, VH fans. The wait is over! It's been confirmed in a press release that the band is working on new tunes. While Roth toured with Van Halen in 2008, no new music had surfaced, and the band always vigorously denied reports that they were in the studio and working on a new album.
A statement has been issued that a new studio album is due sometime in 2011. It will be the band's first platter since 1998 -- and their first with Roth since 1984. However, bassist Michael Anthony is not involved; Eddie's son Wolfgang will play bass on the record.
Van Halen will also embark on a tour in 2011.
