Chickenfoot are offering fans a very special free Live Concert Webcast: Chickenfoot Presents III on the release date of their forthcoming album Chickenfoot III, September 27th.
Ex-Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar, bassist Michael Anthony, guitarist Joe Satriani and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith will perform tracks from the new album at TRI Studios in Marin County, California and host a 30-minute Q&A session with the fans at Chickenfoot.us staring at 6 PM (PST)
“These are exciting times,” said Hagar. “When a band can have the technology to allow them to perform in a state-of-the-art setting and take that performance out around the world is amazing! I’m up for that!”
Fans can submit their questions to be included in the live Q&A session at Chickenfoot.us leading up to the live webcast. Special promotional opportunities to be a member of the live in-studio audience in the studio will be announced on the band’s social sites. The webcast will rebroadcast on the band’s website on September 28th at 12 noon.
Chickenfoot guitarist Joe Satriani has provided Joe Bosso of MusicRadar.com with a song by song breakdown of the band’s new album. Check it out here.
Chickenfoot’s self-titled debut album became a real collector’s item due to its never-before-seen packaging initiative; once the front and back covers are touched, the black ink turns transparent, revealing pictures of band members and the album tracklisting.
Chickenfoot III will surely take-on the same level of collectability for its amazing 3-D packaging. All formats will come complete with special Chickenfoot 3-D glasses, which will enable fans to see the cover art and experience 3-D photos of the band. Without the glasses, fans will see only a plain, blank cover, only once the glasses are worn will the artwork come to life.
The three formats are as follows:
Deluxe CD/DVD Limited Edition: Strictly limited, the deluxe edition of III”includes 2 discs; the regular CD version of the album, plus a bonus DVD. The DVD disc features an EPK, including exclusive interviews with the band and behind-the-scenes footage, the ‘Big Foot’ and ‘Sexy Little Thing’ videos, and an explosive live version of ‘Turning Left’, recorded live in Phoenix, Arizona.
12” Vinyl Edition: Pressed on heavyweight 180gr vinyl, the 12” edition will come with a gatefold sleeve and an exclusive poster.
Standard Edition CD: The standard CD edition will come packaged in a high quality digipack.
