MelodicRock.com is reporting that we may be in for even more new music from Van Halen early next year before the band picks up it's tour again.

Citing 'a good source' the website says that while recording Another Kind of Truth the band recorded enough songs for a second album. They predict the new release may come out as soon as the first quarter of 2013 before they launch the next leg of their tour.

Van Halen was set to tour Japan early next year, but postponed those plans after Eddie Van Halen had surgery for diverticulitis back in August.
