Dave Grohl – “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” [Video: The Late Late Show with James Corden]Kurstin shared his thoughts on the forthcoming album in a press release. He explained,When I want to listen to hard-rock music there’s still nothing that hits me like they do. Every time I hear them it takes me back to when I first found them on the radio, and it felt so dangerous to me—like they were from a whole other world. It would be so great if people who would never usually listen to Van Halen heard this record, and then ended falling in love with them too.The duo will embark on a 15-date tour in support of their Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen release, which will include a tour-opening performance at Los Angeles, CA’s John Anson Ford Theater on August 2nd. Grohl and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Nine Inch Nails) are set to join the duo in L.A.For a full list of The Bird and the Bee’s upcoming tour dates, ticketing, and more information, head to the band’s website.last_img read more
