Red Hot Chili Peppers announce new album Return Of The Dream Canteen

The Red Hot Chili Peppers will release a new album, “Return Of The Dream Canteen”, on October 14.

The band announced their second record of 2022 – following “Unlimited Love” – during a July 23 concert at Denver's Empower Field, which marked the opening night of the group’s North American tour.

Both records were produced by Rick Rubin.

“We went in search of ourselves as the band that we have somehow always been,” says the Peppers. “Just for the fun of it we jammed and learned some old songs. Before long we started the mysterious process of building new songs. A beautiful bit of chemistry meddling that had befriended us hundreds of times along the way. Once we found that slip stream of sound and vision, we just kept mining. With time turned into an elastic waist band of oversized underwear, we had no reason to stop writing and rocking. It felt like a dream.

“When all was said and done, our moody love for each other and the magic of music had gifted us with more songs than we knew what to do with. Well we figured it out. 2 double albums released back to back. The second of which is easily as meaningful as the first or should that be reversed. 'Return of the Dream Canteen' is everything we are and ever dreamed of being. It's packed. Made with the blood of our hearts.”


Red Hot Chili Peppers will continue the tour through California with a special hometown performance in Los Angeles' SoFi Stadium, then through Chicago, Toronto, and more before wrapping up the North American leg in Arlington, TX on Sunday, September 18 at Globe Life Field. A roll call of some of the most acclaimed, eclectic and vital artists across various genres - including HAIM, Beck, Thundercat, The Strokes, King Princess, St. Vincent and Post Malone - will be joining the band on select dates.

The band launched a global stadium tour last month with their European leg at Estadio Olímpico de la Cartuja in Seville, Spain on Saturday, June 4; the concert marked their first show back with guitarist John Frusciante in 15 years and the kickoff to the band's first ever stadium tour. See also:
