Red Hot Chili Peppers’s Flea To Release Solo EP

Written by Marc Zanotti on July 18, 2012

Music Feeds has been suffering from Red Hot Chili Pepper fever ever since the band announced that they will be headlining Big Day Out 2013. Drummer Chad Smith tweeted that ‘Yeeeesssss’ RHCP would indeed be in Australia for the BDO and it was soon followed by a video clip posted online of Anthony Kiedis and Flea confirming the band’s appearance.

Well in further RHCP news, the band’s beloved bassist Flea has just announced he will be releasing a new solo EP titled Helen Burns, the first solo release of his career. In a series of tweets, Flea revealed the details of the upcoming EP, which will be available for purchase in a couple days time. Consequence of Sound has kindly pieced together the various tweets into two easily read statements:

I am putting out an ep i made by myself in a couple of days. it is obscure arty mostly instrumental music, except when patti smith sings. my ep is called helen burns. all proceeds from my helen burns ep will go towards the silverlake conservatory of music. it will be available for down load at any price you want to pay, it will be a donation to the silverlake conservatory of music. will also be vinyl, which i will autograph, and inside will be a piece of a bass string that i have played in concert 75 dollars for that. the information on how to get my helen burns solo flea ep will be coming within the next 2 days.

i recorded most of the ep when we finished our tour for stadium arcadium. it is not rhcp music or even close to it. it is a trippy freakout. on helen burns, i play trumpet, bass, synthesizers, drum machine, piano, and a bunch of other shit

RHCP also have a series of singles coming out from next month, while Flea’s ex-bandmate John Frusciante is also set to release new solo material.
