Chickenfoot—the supergroup featuring guitarist Joe Satriani, drummer Kenny Aronoff, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony, and frontman Sammy Hagar—are offering fans a very special free Live Concert Webcast: Chickenfoot Presents “III” on the release date of their forthcoming album Chickenfoot III, September 27th. At 6PM PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME, the band will perform tracks from the new album at TRI Studios in Marin County, California, and host a 30-minute Q&A session with the fans at the band's official website. Chickenfoot III is available now for pre-order on iTunes.
“These are exciting times,” said Hagar. “When a band can have the technology to allow them to perform in a state-of-the-art setting and take that performance out around the world is amazing! I’m up for that!”
Fans can submit their questions to be included in the live Q&A session at the band's official website leading up to the live webcast. Special promotional opportunities to be a member of the live in-studio audience in the studio will be announced on the band’s social sites as well. The webcast will rebroadcast on the the band's official website on September 28th at NOON PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME.
Chickenfoot III, produced by Mike Fraser and featuring a 3D package, is due September 27th from eOne Music in North America and around the world by earMUSIC/Edel. The lead single, “Big Foot,” debuted at #1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock Chart holding the position for four weeks and earning over 1.5 million listeners. In addition to the initial performance at radio, “Big Foot” is garnering additional media buzz on Rolling Stone’s Hot List in the September 1st issue:
“Get on the good foot! The world’s most random supergroup returns with dinosaur rock so lumberingly powerful that an actual T.rex would flee from its Satriani-ified riffery.”
Chickenfoot III features 10 tracks with so many moments of epiphany that one can barely take them all in on first listen. Colossal, stadium-shaking riffs abound on earth-movers such as “Alright, Alright,” “Last Temptation,” “Big Foot,” and “Lighten Up.” Tradition meets innovation on the Nashville pop-tinged “Different Devil,” the Delta-blues flavored “Something Going Wrong” and the aching rock ballad “Come Closer.” Special video releases and more can be seen at the band's official website, as well as their podcast, YouTube, Facebook, and Google+ pages.
Chickenfoot III follows up the band’s 2009 debut album, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 100 and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
