Chickenfoot Share First New Song in Five Years
It's been five years since the super group Chickenfoot comprised of Sammy Hagar (Montrose, Van Halen, solo), Michael Anthony (Van Halen), Joe Satriani (solo), and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) have put out any new music together. Due to all four of them having conflicting schedules it's kind of hard not to understand. However, since they are about to put out a compilation album titled Best + Live that is scheduled to be released on March 10th, they got together for long enough to do one new song titled Divine Termination which they have released on Soundcloud and are working on making a video for.
Satriani refers to the song in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock as:
“bone-crunching, hell-raising rock, dripping with attitude and vibe. Just the way Chickenfoot likes it!,”
Hagar (also to Ultimate Classic Rock) calls it:
“the coolest song that we’ve maybe ever had” and “really bluesy and edgy and modern and … f—ing cool”
I can kind of understand why the song has the title it does. Given that over the past five years it's been so difficult for the band to get together it very well could be a cosmic force of nature that has decided that they have had their fun but it's time for them to move on. As for the song itself, it's pretty cool. It has a nice groove to it and has that big punchy Chickenfoot sound to it. I don't think it's the best thing they have ever done, but it's definitely worth a listen.
