According to Rolling Stone, the band will begin on August 14 with the release of “Strange Man” and “Long Progression”, and on September 11 they will release a follow-up, “Magpies” and “Victorian Machinery”.

“Some songs seem to have a lot more of an agenda than others,” said Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer in a statement. “Some songs play well with others and some songs need more attention and a little extra care. Here are some songs that seemed to want to pair up and take a later train. Keep your eye on them, they’re up to something . . .”

Each instalment will be available as a 7″ single and digitally.
