Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘I’m With You’ 18 B-Side Single Details + Release Dates

Written by Marc Zanotti on June 19, 2012

Last month Music Feeds reported on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ plans to release a series of 7-inch vinyl records containing a whole bunch of B-Sides from 2011 LP I’m With You. News of the vinyls was first revealed by Anthony Keidis during a May performance in Michigan. Drummer Chad Smith and bassist Flea then later confirmed the Peppers’ plan when replying to fans via Twitter.

We now know the first vinyl will be released on August 14th, 2012 and will contain previously unreleased tracks Strange Man and Long Progression. The second vinyl will follow on September 11, 2012 and consist of B-Sides Magpies and Victorian Machinery.

When speaking about the vinyl series and why certain songs have been paired together, guitarist Josh Klinghoffer indicated it was somewhat a matter of natural selection.

“Finding songs that seem to want to join hands with others is a special task that requires the right people … and the right songs”, says Klinghoffer. “Some songs seem to have a lot more of an agenda than others. Some songs play well with others and some songs need more attention and a little extra care. Here are some songs that seemed to want to pair up and take a later train. Keep your eye on them, they’re up to something,” Klinghoffer said.

In total 18 B-Sides will be released by the time the vinyl series is completed. Each vinyl will also showcase the artwork of Kelsey Brookes, who has apparently fashioned the cover art in such a way that allows all nine 7-inches to combine into one large piece of art.

The I’m With You B-Side series will also be released digitally.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Vinyl/Digital B-Sides Release Dates:

Strange Man / Long Progression – Aug. 14, 2012
Magpies / Victorian Machinery – Sept. 11, 2012
