Chickenfoot Prepare Limited Edition Release of Debut Album

Sammy Hagar's newest project, Chickenfoot (with guitarist Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith, and Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony) will release a deluxe limited edition of their self-titled debut.

The band's original release has already been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America with over 500,000 in album shipments.

"This band is so intense and so loud," Hagar, who grew up in Fontana, said in a telephone interview over the summer.

The new disc will include the bonus track "Bitten by the Wolf," and a DVD of an hour's worth of behind the scenes footage of the band, music videos, interviews and concert footage from their European and U.S. tours.

Hagar said performing every night on tour was a little bit different.
"Every night we were just experimenting between songs," he said.

It will be available exclusively through Best Buy starting on Nov. 1.

The limited edition album will feature a reverse design from that which was featured on their self-titled debut. The original black album artwork was printed with heat sensitive ink and the new design will feature a white background printed with fluorescent ink.

"We're still creating as we go," Hagar said.
