First album since 1984? Definitely exciting.
Several reports are indicating that Van Halen have either signed with Columbia Records or are coming close to sealing a deal with the label. According to theHollywood Reporter, no deal has been signed just yet, but the Sony-owned company is "in the lead" in the race to release the band's first album with original frontman David Lee Roth since 1984. That record is expected to hit stores sometime next year.
