There have been rumors for some months that the singer was set to reunite with his old band and those rumors have seemingly been confirmed by producer John Shanks, who has previously overseen albums by Bon Jovi and Miley Cyrus, amongst others. First Shanks tweeted the message “here we go kids…..vh” and then he posted a photograph of Eddie Van Halen’s amplifier accompanied by the message, “Wtf!”

Last August, Billboard reported that a release by music publishers Warner Chappell—who represent Eddie and Alex Van Halen—had stated that a Van Halen CD featuring Roth would be released in 2011.

Roth fronted Van Halen during their successful 2007-8 tour but hasn’t actually recorded an album with the band since 1984’s 1984, which was certified platinum eight times.

Needless to day, that was a looooong time ago. Are you excited to hear what Dave and Eddie sound like in 2011?
