Chickenfoot, chickenfoot, chickenfoot, CHICKENFOOT!

My previous blog post on the new supergroup "Chickenfoot" featuring Sammy Hagar, is one of the more popular posts on this site. The working name for the project seems to now be the permanent name, and I can't blame them for that, as much publicity as they've gotten out of it so far.

Here are some updated project details on the album from the Van Halen News Desk (via Blabbermouth,) which is now expected to be released in April or May. I'm guessing May, but you never know..

CHICKENFOOT — the new supergroup featuring guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, singer Sammy Hagar (ex-VAN HALEN), bassist Michael Anthony (ex-VAN HALEN), and drummer Chad Smith (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), will release its self-titled debut CD in either April or May. The first single might be either "Oh, Yeah!" or "Bitten By The Wolf". The band's tour in support of the CD will kick off in May, warming up in smaller venues (possibly clubs) in the USA, followed by a few weeks in Europe during the summer. Then the band will return to the USA for a larger headlining tour this fall. The band is planning on performing the entire CD as well as songs from each of the bandmembers' careers. So, expect to hear some classics from VAN HALEN, Sammy Hagar, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, and some blazin' Joe Satriani instrumentals!

I do feel bad for the endless questions about the name that they will have to endure from brain dead radio schmucks that consider reading the band bio five minutes before the interview to be "show prep." But I don't want to get off on a rant here - that's not why we're here today.

Chickenfoot - featuring Hagar, fellow former VH comrade Michael Anthony, silver surfer guitar legend Joe Satriani, and RHCP drummer Chad Smith, are starting to crank up the promo machine for the forthcoming album. After putting a snippet of music on their website a couple of months ago, they recently released this fun video.

They've also nabbed the cover for next month's issue of Guitar World with an interview featuring Satch, Hagar, and Anthony.

Hagar included the Planet US leftovers "Vertigo" and "Peephole" on his most recent solo album, and after hearing those two tunes, I'm amped up to hear the Chickenfoot stuff.

    IM on the “Chickenfoot” boat! I just have one question to them. “Houston, TX is the fourth largest market in our nation, why no presale or previews for us in the South”!? We support the hell out of your individual bands! A little pre-tour “LOVE” would have been nice after years of loyal fanship!!! I will see you guys rain, hail, or (in our part of the contry) Hurricaine! Why, you are the bomb. Just give Houston more consideration on the next tour! Wade Wallace.

    Did you know…. If the “Foot” CD or Vinyl packaging becomes non opaque (the black cover starts to become “see through” you can get it back to its original all black state by putting it in the fridge for 5 minutes.
