  CHICKENFOOT PREMIERE NEW VIDEO FOR 'THREE AND A HALF LETTERS'
19th October 2011

chickenfoot



To coincide with the UK release of Chickenfoot's highly anticipated second album 'III' (October 24th) and the recent announcement of two UK concerts in January 2012, this week the band have released a new video for the single 'Three And A Half Letters' which you can see below.

Featuring guitar hero Joe Satriani, former Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony, and drummer Chad Smith; 'Three And A Half Letters' is the second single to be taken from the band's new album. The song's poignant lyrics tackle the world's economy and current levels of unemployment. The lyrics are taken directly from letters written to Sammy Hagar, following a suggestion from his long standing manager, Carter, who sadly passed away earlier this year during the recording of the new album.

"I've received letters from lots of people, mostly fans, but some people just needing help, looking for work," says Hagar. "Carter had told me to write a song called 'I Need A Job' six months prior but the idea didn't dawn on me until I received a letter from a guy who had just returned from Afghanistan. At the end of his letter he wrote – 'Can you help? I need a job'."

Watch a podcast of the band talking about 'Three And And Half Letters' here:



Chickenfoot will perform two UK concerts in January 2012 as part of a five-date European tour; dates include Manchester Academy (Jan 12) and London's O2 Academy Brixton on (Jan 14), followed by concerts in Paris, Tilburg and Dusseldorf. These are the band's first European shows since July 2009, and will see them perform songs from their gold-selling eponymous debut album, alongside tracks from the new album 'III'.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
