The Red Hot Chili Peppers #FeelTheBern and aren't afraid to show it.

On Feb. 5, the California rockers will perform at a benefit concert for presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. Special guests have yet to be announced.

“So excited to be playing this concert for Bernie Sanders next week. Feels great to support someone I believe in,” Flea wrote on both Facebook and Instagram. “The Rhcp offered to give him the money to pay for the theater that night but he wouldn't accept, he only accepts small donations from individuals. Every other politician greedily grabs every cent they can get from any scumbag lobbyist. This is a man with integrity. If you can please buy the expensive seats to help out the campaign. Thank you so much. Bernie sanders for president.”

In the process of their 11th studio album, RHCP are following the benefit concert with a bit of touring in the U.S. and abroad in Europe.

The Chili Peppers aren't the only musicians in Sanders' corner: Vampire Weekend, Killer Mike and Foster the People will play at an Iowa rally for the presidential hopeful on Saturday.
