Updates on a possible new Van Halen album have come from a source outside the band: Alter Bridge and Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti.

Tremonti, whose solo band includes Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen, revealed the news in an interview with VH1 Radio Network's Dave Basner.

"With Wolfgang in the band now, he does a lot of work with Van Halen right now, they're putting together a new album, so it's going to be hard to get everybody's schedules to line up," Tremonti said.

When asked if Wolfgang talks about the new Van Halen music, Tremonti said he has not revealed much.

"You know, he doesn't," Tremonti said. "He just says, 'Yeah, sounds great, man. Sounds great.'"
