Looks like we won’t need to wait till tonight’s episode of CSI to hear a snippet of new Van Halen. The band has just posted a snippet of a new song called “Blood And Fire” online. It’s hard to judge a song based on only 90 seconds, but like the first single “Tattoo,” what we hear from the new snippet doesn’t sound groundbreaking but is also pretty good. No word yet on whether “Blood And Fire” shares any obvious similarities with any old Van Halen demos.
Be the judge for yourself and listen to the sample of “Blood And Fire” in the video above. In case you didn’t already know,Van Halen’s new album A Different Kind Of Truth will be released on February 7 via Interscope Records.
