CHICKENFOOT Reveals 'Truth' Behind Overlooked 'II' Album (Video)

Following their Grammy nomination for the recently released "Chickenfoot III" album, CHICKENFOOT — the supergroup featuring guitarist Joe Satriani, drummer Chad Smith, former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar — released a video that playfully speculates whatever happened to the seemingly overlooked "Chickenfoot II" LP. The 12-minute clip, dubbed "Behind The Foot: The Truth Behind Chickenfoot II", can be seen below.

Said Satriani, "We promised never to talk about it, so I'm surprised we’re talking about it now."

CHICKENFOOT, which recently earned a Grammy nomination in the "Best Recording Package" category for the creative 3D design of the band's "Chickenfoot III" album, will release a new single, "Different Devil", to radio on January 17 before embarking on a European tour in late January 2012.

CHICKENFOOT recently wrapped a sold-out "2011 Road Test Tour" that took the band through San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Chicago and New York, as well as an appearance on ABC-TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" In each city along the tour, Hagar made a donation to a local food bank in a special partnership with Feeding America to encourage fans to do the same to help fight hunger, an important message that he also intended to convey through the music video for "Three And A Half Letters (I Need A Job)".

The first single from "Chickenfoot III", "Big Foot", debuted at No. 1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart, holding the position for 11 weeks and earning over 1.85 million listeners.

"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" 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".
