On October 5, the guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani released his latest album, entitled Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards. After his previous album, which many saw as a disappointment, Satch seemed to veer his approach slightly. Though nothing drastic, this release does present Joe Satch with a renewed feel.
Chickenfoot… coming soon! The band is a supergroup consisting of Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony (ex-Van Halen) on vocals and bass respectively, Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums, and Joe Satriani (solo) on guitar. The name of the debut album is… (drum roll)… Chickenfoot. It is to be released on June 5 in Europe and June 9 in the States. Most people think the band name is plain awful. However, they surely won’t be thinking that about the music.
Put together a guitar virtuoso (Satriani) and the beat of Red Hot Chili Peppers (drummer, Chad Smith) along with former members of the legendary Van Halen (vocalist Hagar, bassist Mikey) and you’ve got one hell of a supergroup: Chickenfoot.
Three tracks have been released so far, and I personally think they’re great! But don’t just take my word on it, have a listen.
The eponymous album is set to be released on June 5 in Europe, and June 9 in the United States. Expect a review in the near future.
