Chickenfoot debuted a new song, “Divine Termination”, on May 7 during the first of the band's two reunion shows at Harrah's Lake Tahoe.
“We're taking a big chance playing this,” frontman Sammy Hagar told the crowd. “The first day of rehearsal we played it and I put it on my Instagram and I just put the last chorus.”
Hagar previously revealed plans to debut the tune sometime this year.
"I wrote the lyrics while on an airplane to Cabo," Hagar told Rolling Stone last fall. "It's a dark tune, but it's cool. It's a really raw production and a giant step for the 'Foot."
The May 7 & 8 concerts in Tahoe marked the first time in years that Hagar, guitarist Joe Satriani, bassist Michael Anthony and drummer Chad Smith have regrouped to perform a full show.
The supergroup last toured in 2012 in support of their second album, “Chickenfoot III.”
Hagar credits Satriani with keeping the lineup together and moving forward.
"Joe really keeps Chickenfoot's foot on the fire," explains Hagar. "He really wants the band to stay together, and we have definitely not broken up."
