As you all know, we’ve covered Van Halen’s new album A Different Kind Of Truth a great deal. And on February 7, after long delays and never ending rumors, the album finally comes out. However, Idle Hands Bar is giving fans in the NYC area a taste of the new Van Halen material a day early. In other words, our favorite bar in the city will be throwing the official A Different Kind Of Truth listening party on Monday, February 7.
Sponsored by Interscope Records, Looney Tunes CDs, Playmysong and us, Idle Hands is throwing the ultimate party that any Van Halen fan would be crazy to miss. Not only will they be playing A Different Kind Of Truth all night, but will also be giving away t-shirts, posters and a pair of tickets to one of Van Halen’s NYC shows. Plus, Looney Tunes CDs will be there selling the album at midnight, and 40 people that show proof of purchase get a free drink. As an added bonus, your friends at Metal Insider will also be guest bartending that night, giving you the opportunity to boss us around and force us to serve you drinks.
So if you’re in the NYC area Monday night make sure to come at the Idle Hands, located on 25 Avenue B at 3rd Street, starting at 7pm. Listening to new Van Halen in a bar with friends and crap loads of beer, how could a Monday night get any better?
