Chickenfoot update from guitarist Joe Satriani

Joe Satriani is sharing an update on the status of Chickenfoot, the supergroup that also features Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith.

The guitarist says a third album by the band is in the works.

"It is in the pipeline," Satriani tells Artisan News. "Everyone's got demos, everyone's excited. I don't know about the schedule though. That is still — as usual — in the chaotic Chickenfoot state."

Chickenfoot released their self-titled debut in 2009 and their second album, “Chickenfoot III”, in 2011.

Juggling the band member’s schedules has been the group’s biggest challenge.

Satriani and Hagar have maintained solo careers with new album releases, while drummer Chad Smith’s commitments to the Red Hot Chili Peppers prevented him from joining Chickenfoot for live dates in support of the band’s second album; the group brought in Kenny Aronoff to handle drum duties in his absence.
