New CHICKENFOOT Song ‘In The Works’, More On The Way, Says JOE SATRIANI

September 9, 2015

Chickenfoot guitarist Joe Satriani recently did an interview with Shawn and Corbs of “The GuitCast” podcast to talk about his early music education, his amplifier prototype for Marshall Amps, his new album, “Shockwave Supernova” and the current state of Chickenfoot, his project with Sammy Hagar (ex-Van Halen singer), Michael Anthony (ex-Van Halen bassist) and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer).


Talking about what’s happening with Chickenfoot, Satriani said: “I think all my complaining and foot stomping really had an effect, because it was really bothering me and I still, philosophically, just felt like there was a really big disconnect there [between me and some of the other members of Chickenfoot]. I got asked by every single journalist ten times a day [what was going on with the band]. And when I started speaking my mind, I think I realized I rattled some feathers there in the ‘FOOT camp. And I followed it up with just writing some new music, and I sent Sam some stuff, and I was surprised to see him respond so quickly with some creative ideas. And I can happily tell you now that there is a track that is circulating through the band. It’s got new drums from Chad on it, it’s got new vocals from Sam, and I think Mike is coming at the end of this week to add bass and vocals. So there might be something coming. I know there’s a song in the works, and I’m working on a few others that I think I can get them to do. So, yeah, I think there’s hope.”

Hagar revealed via Facebook that he spent August 28 in the studio with Satriani as the guitarist “gear[ed] up for his world tour to support his awesome new CD — and he and I are always messing around with song ideas to see if it tastes like chicken ha ha.”

Hagar’s current band, The Circle, plays songs from all eras of its members’ lives, including tracks from Van Halen and Led Zeppelin.
