The band – featuring former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony, guitarist Joe Satriani and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith – will release its sophomore album, titled Chickenfoot III, in late September.
Chickenfoot’s 2009 Gold-certified, self-titled album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top and included the hit ‘Oh Yeah’.
Alan Grunblatt, President of eOne Music, says, “Chickenfoot is one of the top selling hard rock groups in the country. Everyone at eOne is thrilled to be working with them.”
Chickenfoot lead singer Sammy Hagar adds, “I am very happy to join forces with eOne. The Foot has landed!”
Tracks to appear on the new album include: ‘Bigfoot”, ‘No Change’, ‘Who’s Next’, ‘Astral Years’ and ‘I Ain’t Got You, I Got The Two By Blues’.
According to vocalist Sammy Hagar, the album cover and first video will both be in 3D.
