Van Halen (Sort of) Announce 2012 Tour

It's official? Van Halen has sort of announced they will be touring in 2012. In a series of promo video clips at their official web site (see long version below), a scroll along the bottom says, "Van Halen On Tour 2012 .. First Tickets On Sale January 10."

To further stoke the rumor mill, the band recently released an image of a freight train with the date 2.7.12 on it (see below). Whether the date is read as February 7, 2012, or July 2, 2012, it could mark the release of the band's highly anticipated new album—the first with Roth since 1984—or perhaps the release date for the first single (perhaps a cover of "Train Kept A'Rollin'"?). Either way, it looks like we're finally going to get some new Van Halen music.
