During a brand new interview with Artisan News, legendary guitarist Joe Satriani was asked if there are any plans for CHICKENFOOT — his "suprgroup" with RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS drummer Chad Smith, former VAN HALEN bassist Michael Anthony and frontman Sammy Hagar — to release a third studio album. "It is in the pipeline," he replied (see video below). "Everyone's got demos, everyone's excited. I don't know about the schedule though. That is still — as usual — in the chaotic CHICKENFOOT state."CHICKENFOOT reissued its gold-selling 2009 self-titled debut as a double-disc set. The new version features bonus live tracks recorded on the group's tour behind its sophomore studio effort, "III" CHICKENFOOT's most recent touring lineup included legendary drummer/musician Kenny Aronoff, who was filling in for Smith while Chad was on the road with RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. "III" sold 42,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's self-titled debut opened with 49,000 units back in June 2009 to debut at No. 6.
