Van Halen is said to be making progress on a new album. According to the "Van Halen News Desk" fan site, the group is done mixing the material.

The band reportedly finished the task a few weeks ago, completing the process in less than two months. Van Halen will now start mastering the material, which is anticipated to only take a week, so the band will likely have their new CD ready for release by the end of the month. However, no release date has been announced yet for the album's arrival. But Van Halen's still-untitled studio effort is expected to hit stores before the end of this year.
