After nearly two years of touring in support of their half-million-selling tenth album I’m With You, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are finally winding down and may soon book some studio time to work on new material.

“We’re probably looking at getting together in September and getting on a roll and starting to write songs for the next record,” drummer Chad Smith told Billboard.

Smith elaborated that the band won’t have any “fully formed songs until the four of us get together in a room together.” At this point, Smith says they just have little “tidbits” and “ideas percolating.”

Before the Los Angeles foursome can settle down and hit the studio, they’ll check off a few more festival performances including San Francisco’s Outside Lands and Metallica’s Orion Festival, taking over Belle Isle Park in Smith’s home town of Detroit on June 8.

In addition to headlining Coachella last month, Red Hot Chili Peppers recently visited Portland, OR to play for the Dalai Lama who visited as part of an environmental summit.

In early 2012 the band began leaking a series of 18 unreleased tracks in the form of 7” vinyl singles, the latest of which, an 8-minute song titled “In Love Dying,” became available in February. The songs were recording during the I’m With You sessions. Although the $74.98 series subscription is sold out, individual vinyl singles are still available on the band’s website and digitally on iTunes.
