CHICKENFOOT: New Single To Make Online Debut Today

"Bigfoot", the new single from CHICKENFOOT the supergroup featuring guitar hero Joe Satriani, drummer Chad Smith, former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar will be released via iTunes tomorrow (Monday, August 1). The track, a sample of which can be heard on Amazon.com, will make its online debut later today (Sunday, July 31).

CHICKENFOOT will release its sophomore album, "Chickenfoot III", on September 26 via earMUSIC/Edel and from eOne Music in North America in a special 3D designed package.

Produced by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, METALLICA), "Chickenfoot III" and is described by Hagar as "the best record I've ever made." He tells RollingStone.com, "It's a lot more musical than the last record the hooks and the songs are better. Satriani adds, "We created a record that was deeper and better than the first one . . . it makes a musician very happy when they can see that they are involved with something that's very moving forward and life-changing."

Smith will have two new records out within a month of each other, since the new RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS album, "I'm With You", arrives on August 30. Smith will not tour with CHICKENFOOT this time due to his commitments with his main band.

"That's the biggest disappointment about the whole thing," Hagar tells RollingStone.com, adding the band has auditioned several drummers and have an audition with Kenny Aronoff (JOHN MELLENCAMP, JOHN FOGERTY, SMASHING PUMPKINS). "He's going to spend a couple days with this and were just going to jam and if he fits. It's got to be the chemistry. Kenny can play that's for sure and we all like him. He's kind of like Chad he's kind of crazy and he hits so fucking hard that he beats his drum set to the ground that after every show he needs a new drum set."
