The supergroup announce that a new single will be with us by the end of the summer
The announcement came via bassist Michael Anthony's official Facebook page and it revealed that the record had finished its mixing stages.
In his post Anthony revealed "It's a lot heavier than the first record and I can't wait to get it out there! The first single should hit the airwaves sometime this summer with the full enchilada to follow in the fall."
The album was overseen by Mike Fraser, a Canadian producer, engineer and mixer who has previously worked with AC/DC, Metallica and Aerosmith. Song titles set to appear on the album include "No Change", "Who's Next", "Astral Years" and "I Ain't Got You, I Got The Two By Blues".
The band are expected to hit the road in the winter in support of the album, but they'll probably be doing it without drummer Chad Smith, who will be on the road with the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the same time. Smith does appear on the record, though.
There's no word on the name of the album at the moment, although frontman Sammy Hagar suggested earlier in the year that the band would call it Chickenfoot IV.
"It's the working title but I guarantee it'll stick." he said, "We were all like, 'What are we going to call the second record? Well, 'Chickenfoot II' (Two). And we're going, 'We can't call it 'Chickenfoot II', that's too obvious.' And pretty soon [drummer] Chad Smith, I'm sure was the guy, he's going, 'Let's call it 'Chickenfoot IV'. And we all cracked up and said, 'Right on, that's it.' And we haven't talked about it since."
