Van Halen 'Tattoo'

Reunited rockers release first song from forthcoming album

Andy Greene

Less than a week after their stellar concert at New York's Cafe Wha?, Van Halen have released the video for their new single "Tattoo" from their forthcoming LP A Different Kind of Truth. It's their first album with Roth since 1984. They cut the bare-bones video at the Roxy in Los Angeles late last year. The group didn't perform "Tattoo" at the Cafe Wha? last week, but they did perform "She's The Woman," which is included on the new album even though it dates back to a demo from 1976. Van Halen kick off a 45-date tour February 18th in Louisville, Kentucky. A Different Kind of Truth is available now for pre-order on iTunes.

What do you guys think of the song? Is it worth the 28-year wait?
