It's release day tomorrow for Van Halen's “A Different Kind of Truth,” the first album from the band to feature both Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth since “1984,” and WBAB/102.3-FM plans to celebrate.

The Long Island rock station will play nothing but Van Halen all day tomorrow, including the new album in its entirety at 7 p.m.

“Since their debut in 1978, Van Halen have set the world on fire with massive songs, unrivaled musicianship and classic rock 'n' roll swagger,” WBAB Program Director Chris Lloyd said in a statement. “We’re thrilled that destiny finally reunited Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth and we can’t think of a better way to honor them than to give Long Island a heaping helping of Halen!”

Fans can request their favorite Van Halen songs at the station's website WBAB.com.
