Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced they will play a free show in London next month previewing new album "I'm With You", reveals NME.

The punk band are set to release their 10th studio album 'I'm With You' on August 30 and will play an intimate gig at the UK capital's KOKO on September 2.

The show is being organized by Radio 1, and all tickets will be given away free by means of a random ticket ballot.

The free show is also special as it will be the first listening of new album 'I'm With You' which is the band's first album since their 2006 double LP "Stadium Arcadium", and is also the band's first with former Warpaint man Josh Klinghoffer acting as guitar player.

He replaced long time band member John Frusciante, who quit the band for a second time in 2009.

The band recently announced a UK and Ireland arena tour for November, which will take in nine shows, including two nights at London's O2 Arena, said NME.
