HAGAR, SATRIANI To Perform National Anthem At CARDINALS Vs. GIANTS Game In San Francisco

March 30, 2011

CHICKENFOOT's Sammy Hagar and Joe Satriani will perform the national anthem at the St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants game on Saturday, April 9 at AT&T Park in San Francisco, California.

CHICKENFOOT has come up with a name for the supergroup's second album. Hagar said during Canadian Music Week, "We're calling it 'Chickenfoot IV' (Four). That's how silly we are. It's the working title but I guarantee it'll stick." He added, "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."

CHICKENFOOT has been recording the new CD with Mike Fraser, a Canadian producer, engineer and mixer who has previously worked with AC/DC, METALLICA and AEROSMITH. Songtitles 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".

CHICKENFOOT drummer Chad Smith recently confirmed that he won't tour with CHICKENFOOT this year in support of the band's second album due to scheduling conflicts with his main group, the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.

CHICKENFOOT's self-titled debut disc came out in June 2009 and was certified gold for sales of more than 500,000 copies.
