Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has confirmed that the band is to take an extended break while they get round to some much needed r'n'r. But don't worry (or, rather, do, if you're a hater) because they will be back.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Keidis said: "We actually took a very long time to make the 'Stadium Arcadium' record, because we wrote a lot of songs and then got way too married to them and decided we needed it to be a double album, which was a great experience, but it took forever".
Neglecting to mention how long it takes to listen to the last album, he added that the band haven't had any time off since 1999: "We were all emotionally and mentally zapped at the end of that run. Cooler heads prevailed and the discussion at the end of our last tour was, 'Let's not do anything Red Hot Chili Peppers-related for a minimum of one year, and just live and breathe and eat and learn new things".
