The new disc will be called I'm With You and serve as the follow-up to their 2006 chart-topping record Stadium Arcadium.
Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis previously revealed that the working title for the record had been 'Dr Johnny Skinz's Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head' and was inspired by an acid trip one of his friends once experienced.
The California four-piece will precede the album's release with their new single 'The Adventures Of Raindance Maggie' on July 18.
Legendary producer Rick Rubin has been working on I'm With You and it is expected that the album will be released towards the end of August.
