With the release of Chickenfoot’s second full length release, III, the band is following up with their debut single “Big Foot” with this powerful new track/video, Three And A Half Letters (I Need A Job).
With so many Americans unemployed, the track is comprised of heartbreaking letters sent to the band explaining their situation and the need for income, a job, etc. mixed with some performance footage.

Rock supergroup, Chickenfoot, released their “Big Foot” video this morning via their official website and YouTube channel. The band consists of Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony of Van Halen, guitar legend Joe Satriani and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith.
While Chad Smith is on tour with the RHCP, veteran drummer Kenny Aranoff will be filling in on drums for the Fall tour.
Chickenfoot will be releasing Chickenfoot III on September 27th. This is the follow-up album to their debut self-titled release, Chickenfoot, which was received gold recognition in 2009. The album was 1 of only 12 to be certified that year.

Chickenfoot were on the Tonight Show with Conan O Brien on 6/5. They played “Oh Yeah” which has guitar arrangements that sound similar to Red Hot Chili Peppers’s “Can’t Stop.” This is even more amusing considering that Joe Satriani is suing Coldplay. Maybe RHCP should sue Satriani and Chickenfoot. Btw, despite the shirt that Chad Smith is wearing, he looks a LOT like Will Ferrell in this video. Is that his real hair? anyways, watch the video and enjoy four different songs at once.. I mean “Oh Yeah.”
All of you Chickenfoot fetishists, take note! Chickenfoot has announced June 9th as the date of release for their debut self-titled album. The band will be promoting the tour by playing
senior centers and bingo halls I mean a few club shows before heading off to Europe. You can pre-order the album at Best Buy starting on April 19th. You can get pre-sale tickets by registering for the band’s fan club here for $40. Check out the dates below:

Supergroup Chickenfoot’s getting amped up to release their new album in a few months and will probably be playing a few CD release shows in major markets before going to play some summer European festivals, at least according to Joe Satriani. Check out the following message from his forum on his site:
MESSAGE FROM JOE
Chickenfoot. Chickenfoot? Chickenfoot! Yes, the band Chickenfoot featuring Sammy Hagar, Chad Smith, Michael Anthony and yours truly, is about to release its first CD called, “Chickenfoot”, of course. It was one year ago this last February that we first got together in Vegas for a little jam in front of a few thousand people, and decided to make a go of it. I’m glad we did.
Thinking back, it seemed kind of crazy to join a new band just as I was about to release “Professor Satchifunkilus…” and launch its world tour. All the hard work paid off though. Our “Live in Paris” DVD from that tour will be released this year in all its psychedelic glory, and the “Chickenfoot” CD should be out in about a month, or, two. As a new band, Chickenfoot will do a few CD release party gigs in May to kick things off, then it’s off to Europe for a few weeks of Summer festivals. We are looking towards a headlining tour in the USA this fall. I’m so excited about bringing our new band and music to the stage. The energy this unit puts out is incredible, absolutely amazing. Chickenfoot Rocks!
