After 14 long years THEY ARE BACK with a new studio album titled “A Different Kind Of Truth”. It’s filled with 13 tracks that blow your mind away with astonishing wild tunes. These rockers know what they are doing. It really is a killer Van Halen album. Eddie’s guitar playing is back and better than ever.
Van Halen has sold millions of albums, toured and rocked the entire world for years. Eddie Van Halen's guitar techniques, his use of two-handed tapping, vibrato, and tremolo picking have influenced an uncountable number of guitarists. And if for some strange reason you thought there’s nothing else Eddie Van Halen could offer after years of non-studio albums, “A Different Kind Of Truth” proves you wrong! Eddie is definitely back!
“A Different Kind Of Truth” is heavier than any Van Halen album since “Fair Warning” and is possibly the most aggressive material ever compared to previous studio recordings throughout the band’s musical career.

David Lee Roth vocals certainly put a smile on your face. And Hell Yes! He still delivers the old-school-sexy-powerful rock singing he is known for and is without doubt the right match for Van Halen’s music!
Alex Van Halen’s drumming is the most aggressive ever! As always, Alex plays in perfect tempo with potent rhythmical touches and also shows a remarkable synchronicity with the young bass player Wolfgang Van Halen, the son of Eddie. Wolfgang is 20 y/old and his full-time contribution to this album is by far impressive. He is undoubtedly following the right steps to a successful musical career.
