Unlimited Love, the much anticipated new album from Red Hot Chili Peppers is here! If you have pre-ordered your copy by mail order it is on its way to you now or available to pick up in store from Friday 1st April..
'The band sounds more mature and hones in on what it does best: laidback funk rock that’s heavy on groove. Anthony Kiedis’ signature delivery and nonsequitur lyric writing is back in full force, as well. The album is also significant for another reason: it marks the return of long-time guitarist John Frusciante after 16 years.' (Riff Magazine)
