It finally happened. After about 5 years since their last album “Stadium Arcadium,” the Red Hot Chili Peppers have just released their latest work on the album called “I’m With You.” We, the Lone Scientists, are huge Chili Peppers fans and love their music. Since “Stadium Arcadium,” the band has experienced some major changes including the announcement that guitarist John Frusciante was leaving the band to focus on his solo career. Fortunately, guitarist and friend Josh Klinghoffer agreed to take Frusciante’s place. The new album “I’m With You,” demonstrates the Chili Peppers’ ability to play many different types of music, however, the band does a good job of staying true to their abilities by making funky and rocking tracks just like they always have. Klinghoffer does a great job as well by contributing his own playing style to the new album, but the listener can definitely hear similarities between Klinghoffer and Frusciante (their last names are also similarly difficult to spell at times). Stay tuned this week as we feature songs from the new album and also keep it real by posting some older tracks as well.
We’ll begin with the first track “Monarchy of Roses” off the new album. It has a really catchy chorus and energetic ending.
