Van Halen aren't doing much in the way of press around the release of their new album, A Different Kind of Truth, but the L.A. Times managed to track down frontman David Lee Roth to talk about his first new album with the band in nearly three decades. A few excerpts follow.
Samples of all 13 new Van Halen tunes are now available via YouTube, so instead of any more individual posts, we've decided to collect all the audio samples from A Different Kind of Truth right here in one convenient location. Enjoy!
If you were one of those that cried foul over "Stay Frosty" not being quite heavy enough for your tastes, then check out the below clip of another new track, "China Town." So far, this is easily the heaviest thing we've heard from A Different Kind of Truth, bordering on straight-ahead metal.
Amazon's UK website is now hosting a clip of yet another new Van Halen track, "The Trouble With Never," which is set to appear on their upcoming new album, A Different Kind of Truth. Head here to listen.
Continuing to build momentum toward the February 7 release of their new album, A Different Kind of Truth, Van Halen have posted another 90-second clip of a new track. Scroll down to listen to a minute and a half of a bluesy number called "Stay Frosty."

Yesterday, Van Halen debuted the music video for their new single, "Tattoo," the first new material with David Lee Roth since two new tracks released in 1996.
