EDDIE VAN HALEN's Visit To Mastering Studio Prompts Speculation

The Facebook page of the Howie Weinberg Mastering Studio in Los Angeles, California has been updated with a photo (see below) of VAN HALEN guitarist Eddie Van Halen's visit to the facility last week, fueling speculation that the meeting had something to with the "secret" project that VAN HALEN singer David Lee Roth revealed the band was working on.

Howie mastered VAN HALEN's most recent album, 2012's "A Different Kind Of Truth", which sold 187,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The CD was the band's first full-length offering with David Lee Roth since "1984" was released in January 1984.

Roth exited the group in 1985, a year after its "1984" album was released.

VAN HALEN has been mostly silent since coming off the road in summer 2012 and canceling a large portion of its touring plans behind "A Different Kind Of Truth".

The band — which reunited with Roth in 2007 after 23 years apart — has reportedly been working on its 13th studio album.

Roth said in an interview late last year that VAN HALEN had started work on a new record, revealing, "I write lyrics routinely and the band plays together routinely, at least three times a week up at Ed's [Van Halen] place."
