Is Van Halen Leaving Warner Bros For Columbia Records?

| Filed under: Music Minute

That, dear friends, is what we are hearing.

According to reports, after 35 years at Warner Bros., Van Halen has left WB for Sony. An insider reveals that Columbia A&R executive Stephen Ferrera has been dubbed the task of overseeing the next Van Halen album, which will hopefully come out sometime in 2012 and in fact be the first album featuring David Lee Roth since 1984.

Another insider at the label points out that "nothing has been signed yet, but Columbia has been in the lead for some time.”

While we're stoked about the fellas making another album, we can't help but wonder what the WB did to them to make them want to leave after three and half decades together. It seems kind of odd, right?

    IF the band can keep from killing each other long enough to get an album out I will happily plunk down my hard earned cash for their latest! Keep it together VH, we need some decent rock music, in this sickly pop world.
