    Love it, sans visuals.

    Been on quite a Van Halen listening streak since the announcements were made.

    Trying to catch them live if they come to Europe. Never seen them live before.

    New song is smooth, the chorus is kinda silly, though.

    There's some pretty ludicrous stuff going on in that video, but sadly, I don't think Van Halen's new record will come anywhere close to Lulu in the ludicrousness stakes.

    That says "vocals only" but there are clearly finger snaps.

    LOL I haven't seen that David vocals only video in foreeeeever. Shit is HILARIOUS...as for the new song? What a stinker. The part that starts at :52 where it's just them standing there singing to each other made me straight LOL. So bad...

    Not digging "Tattoo" at all. The song just sounds far too "safe", and the lyrics are horrendous. It's missing Mike Anthony's harmonies.

    I hope the rest is better.

    And that picture of Roth in the vocals only video is creepy shit. But still it's damn funny.

    Yikes. I saw them 8 or 9 years ago too it's down there as far as bad shows go.

    Apparently these aren't new songs, but rather old songs just finally being released/recorded.

    Shout out to David at 1:18 in the video for forgetting the lyrics and looking off camera for a cue card.

    Starting to like Tattoo. Has a cool laid back vibe to it.

    None of this would've happened if they actually kept Michael Anthony in the band.

    To paraphrase Frasier Crane, no they would be in a different kind of Hell.

    very sad to hear this, ADKOT is a really solid album and was hoping they could build on that.

    I seriously hope those were both shot on the same date and he's not rocking the overalls on a daily basis.

    Canceled. Your guess is as good as mine, but nothing would surprise me at this point as to why.

    VH played some dates overseas this year and Dave recently posted that new VH sessions will soon by underway. LOVED ADKOT--my favorite album of 2012 and I'd love a follow-up.

    As for the 2004 tour mentioned in this thread--Sammy talks about that in his book. Eddie really was a mess back then. People may be pissed that Mike's gone, but Wolf is responsible for bringing VH back from the dead. He's made Eddie want to tour/record again.

    I listened to A Different Kind of Truth yesterday for the first time in a while and I've got to say that the album still amazes me. Yes, "Tattoo" was very safe. It's a fun, upbeat song, but really is the most tepid thing on the album. I agree that it's missing MA's harmonies, but the background vocals on the rest of the album sound pretty good. When I was listening to ADKOT yesterday I was struck by how HEAVY it is. It really rocks like a motherfucker and it strikes the perfect balance between sounding modern and retro. It's just a great album and, IMHO, stands up well against anything from those six classic albums (1978-1984). Dave recently stated (about three months ago) that Van Halen would be doing something around 2015.
