Recording engineer/mixer Ross Hogarth joined mastering engineer Bernie Grundman and his assistant Joe Bozzi for extended sessions at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood to finalize Van Halen's new album on Interscope Records, A Different Kind of Truth. The band's first album in 14 years was recorded at Henson Studios, and recorded and mixed at 5150 Studios.

Hogarth began working on the project more than a year ago, and once material was recorded and mixed, stepped into Bernie Grundman Mastering to work on the final touches of equalization, sequencing, and preparation for release on CD, vinyl, and various digital release formats.

Producer/engineer Hogarth has worked with such artists as REM, Ziggy Marley, Keb Mo, Jewel, Melissa Etheridge, John Mellencamp, John Fogerty, and Motley Crüe.

The new album is the first full length Van Halen album since 1998's Van Halen III and the first new music from the band since the three new songs included on 2004's Best of Both Worlds compilation. It will also be the first Van Halen album to feature Eddie's son, Wolfgang Van Halen, on bass in place of Michael Anthony.

Van Halen's current lineup is David Lee Roth, lead vocals; Eddie Van Halen, lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals; Alex Van Halen, drums; and Wolfgang Van Halen, bass and backing vocals.
