RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS Plan To Work On New Music In 2018

According to The Pulse Of Radio, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS plan to mostly stay off the road in 2018 and begin writing new music. Asked about the group's plans for the new year, drummer Chad Smith told ABC Radio: "We're just gonna take a break for the rest of this year, and then we'll start up [and] probably write some more songs next year. Hopefully [we'll] make a record at some point. That's the plan."

Following a benefit that took place Thursday night (December 14) in San Francisco to raise money for wildfire relief, the CHILI PEPPERS are only scheduled for now to headline three Lollapalooza festivals in Argentina, Chile and Brazil next March.

Other than that, Smith said: "There's not gonna be any more touring next year, really," adding, "We're just concentrating on writing more songs and getting better and trying to keep doing what we’re doing, 'cause we love it."

Singer Anthony Kiedis told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that every record the CHILI PEPPERS have released is special to the band in its own way. "I feel like every record we make is a milestone," he said. "Every record we make sums up where we've been and where we're at when we make it. They all strike me as being very poignant indicators of who and what we are at that point in time."
