RHCP NEWS: Over the next six months the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be releasing 18 previously unreleased sides from the I'm With You sessions.
Songs will be available both digitally and on 7 inch vinyl. You may consider picking up the vinyl for the artwork.
Each of the nine 7 inches will feature cover artwork by Kelsey Brookes, and when combined together, form one larger piece of artwork.
Brookes' well-documented background in microbiology, surf culture and folk art combine in explosive prisms of raucous color, bold imagery and timeless motifs. His work has appeared in countless group shows, art fairs, and magazines such as GQ, Modern Painters, Juxtapoz, Beautiful Decay and Dazed and Confused. Check out Brookes' website at www.kelseybrookes.com
