It looks like Hell is getting ready to freeze over again. Veteran rockers the Eagles, currently in the middle of a European tour, are planning to record a new album this fall.
"It was our intent to start playing as a band together, sort of to get our
chops up," Glenn Frey told VH1 News last week during a tour stop in Moscow. "We wanted to get used to living together and
working together. And come September, we're looking forward to trying to
write some songs and make a record."
The Eagles' last album, 1994's Hell Freezes Over, was their first in 15
years. Even so, it featured only four new studio recordings the anthemic
"Get Over It," the weepy ballad "Love Will Keep Us Alive," the
country-tinged "The Girl From Yesterday" and the introspective "Learn to Be
Still." The remainder of the album was live cuts that documented the band's reunion
tour. The Eagles haven't released a full studio album since 1979's The Long
The group's decision to record a new album may explain why it hasn't yet
scheduled an American tour. The band plays Hanover, Germany, on June 6, then
twists its way through England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Belgium, Switzerland
and Italy. The only U.S. dates on the schedule are July 28 in Dallas,
Texas, at the American Airlines Center, and August 11 in Denver, Colorado, at
the spankin' new Invesco Field at Mile High.
