The long - and we mean long - rumoured new album and tour from Van Halen will indeed happen in 2012.

That's what the group is saying in a newly released video trailer.

No dates or cities are confirmed in the trailer, but it is unveiled that the first tickets will go on sale January 10th. The two-minute clip was shot on November 14th at the Roxy nightclub in West Hollywood, California and apparently features visuals of the band performing a brand new song -- but all you hear on the clip itself is audio of several David Lee Roth-era Van Halen classics.

The shoot was reportedly for a video for the song that the band is seen but not heard playing in the tour announcement clip.

Watch the trailer below and stay tuned to The LOON for more details!
