Chickenfoot III is the second studio album by American hard rock band Chickenfoot, released on September 27, 2011.[1] The first pressing of the album was packaged in an exclusive 3-D album cover and includes 11 new songs. Despite the title, this is not actually the band's third album. Other rumored titles that have been mentioned include Chickenfoot IV (four).

Production[edit]

The band began to record the album back in April 2010, when they had some free time. They demoed four unnamed songs and put one of them in a video describing the A.M.P.F. technology (which stands for "Audio Musical Performance Fidelity").[5]

On July 8, 2011, the band posted a new video online of the first teaser of one of the songs from the new album with this message included in the video: "Attention Foot Soldiers. Get Your Boots On. September 27, 2011."[6]
