CHICKENFOOT To Release Ultimate Box Set 'I+III+LV'

earMUSIC, the Hamburg based international rock label part of Edel Group, will release "I+III+LV" by CHICKENFOOT on January 25, 2013. The box set will include the worldwide Top 10 debut album "Chickenfoot" and the equally successful follow-up "III" and the limited live release "LV", released in December and limited to 10.000 numbered copies in Europe.

"LV" features over an hour of live music made of four unreleased live songs recorded during the "III" world tour and a series of very rare digital bonus tracks and B-sides live.

Since their debut album in 2009, CHICKENFOOT is one of the names mentioned the most in the industry, and one of the most loved among rock fans. Guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith together with Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony (both formerly of VAN HALEN) reinvented the meaning of rock "supergroup", even if the fabulous four don't like the definition themselves, having started the band just by jamming in clubs, without the idea of making it a successful recording band.

The worldwide rock community welcomed the band's debut album, "Chickenfoot", as one of the most inspired and honest rock record heard in years. "Chickenfoot" became one of the biggest rock successes of 2009. It ended up selling close to one million copies. The album is included in the box set, for the first time featuring the rare B-side "Bitten By The Wolf" previously only available on vinyl LP.

The follow-up, "III", repeated the success of the first album and showed the band making a big step forward in terms of song-writing and sound identity reminding everybody how arena rock can be a fine art form and the most exciting thing around. The box set includes "III" in its limited CD+DVD version, featuring a bonus DVD with exclusive behind the scenes content, videos and live music.

"LV", CHICKENFOOT's first live CD, includes rare live versions of their biggest hits like "Big Foot", "Oh Yeah" and "My Kinda Girl" and four previously unreleased live songs from the most recent world tour featuring the phenomenal Kenny Aronoff on drums (stepping in for Chad Smith, who was busy with the CHILI PEPPERS).

For all the most dedicated fans who have already bought "Chickenfoot" and "III", CHICKENFOOT will make the extra disc, "LV", available for a limited period as a stand-alone CD, released all over Europe on December 7, 2012 (strictly limited to 10,000 numbered copies).

Sammy Hagar expressed his enthusiasm with his proverbial energy when asked to comment about the limited release of "LV". "Every now and then with great bands some songs just outdo the original recordings live," he said. "À la 'Live At Leeds', 'Frampton Comes Alive' etc. I feel these four live CHICKENFOOT tracks do just that. Especially 'Something Going Wrong'. If it were 20 years ago when DJs were allowed to play what they wanted to play, this song would be a hit at rock radio. There's magic there, check it out. If the fur doesn't come up on your arms, it wasn't loud enough! Crank it up and enjoy!"
