Chickenfoot Wrapping Up 12 "Wonderful New Songs", Due in Fall

Sammy Hagar has confirmed that the new Chickenfoot album is just about done and should be out in the fall.

The band is comprised of Hagar on lead vocals,
Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith on drums, guitarist Joe Satriani, and former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony. The band has been recording with Mike Fraser, a Canadian producer, engineer, and mixer whose C.V. includes AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith, and Satriani.

"We're doing a new album right now and it's fantastic," Hagar told Noisecreep. "Chickenfoot's just such a great band. Chickenfoot is so much like when I joined Van Halen originally, the '5150' years (1986). We do everything so fast."

Just prior to leaving on his book tour to promote his new autobiography, 'Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock,' Hagar said that Fraser had been at his home studio in California all week to record his background vocals.

"I have a studio. When the Foot's in there, I call it The Foot Locker; when my band's in there, I call it Red Rocker Recording. It's going great. We have 12 wonderful new songs and I'm doing vocals and Joe's doing overdubs. We've got all the basic tracks."
