(Gibson) Chickenfoot fans can expect a new, heavier album from the supergroup this fall. Former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony said the group (which also includes Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith) have wrapped up sessions on the record, the band's second, according to UltimateClassicRock.com.
Anthony addressed the album in response to birthday wishes (he just turned 57) on his Facebook page: "Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes! The only thing that makes my day better is that mixing on the new Chickenfoot CD is done! It's a lot heavier than the first record and I can't wait to get it out there!"
The bass player also spoke to Adam Carolla, on the comedian's Carcast podcast, about release dates for the new music. "The first single should hit the airwaves sometime this summer with the full enchilada to follow in the fall," he said. The album is allegedly titled Chickenfoot IV, even though it's only the second full-length from the guys. more on this story
