Their second hit single, "Different Devil" has hit #13 with a bullet on the Mediabase Mainstream Rock Chart and #5 on the Mediabase Classic Rock Chart. This will be the bands first full US run since 2009.
In November CHICKENFOOT completed a sold out "Road Test Tour" that took them through San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Chicago and New York with a stop for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
CHICKENFOOT released "Chickenfoot III" late last year to much critical praise, "It's hard to hate big-boned butt rock from guys clearly making it because they still love the form," says ROLLING STONE.
BILLBOARD says, “It’s a rare case of a group that’s equal to – or perhaps even greater than – the sum of its parts…this is an album that really wins hearts with its granite thump’n’roll.”
USA TODAY went as far to say that "Chickenfoot III" could be "the beginning of a riff-driven renaissance." The band recently earned a GRAMMY nomination for the “Best Recording Package,” for the creative 3D design.
The first single, “Big Foot,” debuted at #1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock Chart holding the position for 11 weeks. "Chickenfoot III" debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 100 and follows the band’s 2009 debut album, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 100 and was certified gold for sales over 500,000 units by the Recording Industry Association of America. http://ow.ly/6dETy
