The men of the Red Hot Chili Peppers are well-known for their spiritual sides, and in 2000 the band made various requests for the goal of maintaining their spiritual balance. The band requested aromatherapy candles, fresh ginger root, fresh papaya juice and 24 one-liter bottles of still "glacier water" from either Hawaii or Australia.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Red Hot Chili Peppers have pumped out monster hits throughout the 2000s, much like they did in the 1990s. The band's follow-up to 'Californication' brought RHCP into the 21st Century with an increasingly sturdy sense of importance, as 'By the Way,' the title track of the band's 2002 album, began a run which would allow the band to sell over 13 million copies of the album worldwide.
Red Hot Chili Peppers will be unleashing a total of 18 unreleased songs from the 'I'm With You' sessions, but this isn't just your normal B-sides release. The band will hit fans with the unheard tracks both as a digital series and a set of nine separate 7-inch vinyl records, which will be released two songs at a time from this August to early 2013.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are nothing if not deliberate in the studio -- they've taken at least three years between each album since 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik,' and their two most recent releases, 'Stadium Arcadium' and 'I'm With You,' were preceded by four- and five-year waits, respectively. Fans have probably been prepared to wait until 2016 for new material from the band -- but the Peppers have some surprises in store.
