Along with some hype about their upcoming U.S. tour, Van Halen released a track, Tattoo, from their new album on Tuesday.
Just a week after an intimate concert at New York City's Café Wha?, Van Halen has given more details into their forthcoming LP A Different Kind of Truth, releasing a track list for the album.
The first single, Tattoo, is the first new single in 14 years on their long-awaited comeback album featuring original frontman David Lee Roth. The album will be their first with Roth since 1984.
Tattoo was not a part of the band's set at the Café Wha? show but did perform one song from their new album, She's the Woman. The concert, set up to promote their new album, last Thursday was their first live gig since 2008. Critics said the show was blazing, despite the freezing temperatures outside in New York.
The re-formed band recently announced on its Web site the reunion tour with original lead singer David Lee Roth, guitarist Eddie Van Halen, drummer Alex Van Halen and bassist Wolfgang Van Halen.
For some of us, this is definitely a 'dream' show. ... We're all excited about it, Paige Reese, the director of BOK, said.
In addition to the album and single, the band has announced an upcoming U.S. tour, announcing official dates and locations via their Web site. The band will kick off a 45-date tour beginning Feb. 18 in Louisville, Ken.
Tickets will go on sale from Jan. 14, 10 a.m. and will reportedly cost between $68.50 and $155.50 depending on the venue.
Here is the track listing for their upcoming album, A Different Kind of Truth, slated for a Feb. 7 release.
'She's The Woman'
'You and Your Blues'
'Blood And Fire'
'The Trouble With Never'
