LV: limited edition Europe-only live album

earMUSIC, the Hamburg based rock label which is part of Edel Group, is proud to announce the release of "LV" from Chickenfoot on December 10th, 2012. "LV" is the band's first ever live CD and features versions of 'Big Foot', 'Oh Yeah', 'My Kinda Girl' and many more. "LV" will only be available in Europe, strictly limited to 10,000 numbered copies. Though the demand to see them live was massive, live dates in Europe have been few because of the members' other commitments; "LV" will address that.

With Chickenfoot, guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, Red Hot Chili Pepper's drummer Chad Smith and Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony of Van Halen have reinvented the concept of the rock 'super-group' ? even if they would never use that term themselves. The band was put together first and foremost to allow them to get out on the road and perform live together. "LV" offers a full hour of great music recorded during the band's US tours in 2009 and 2012. The first half has never been released before, recorded during the 2012 "Different Devil" tour and featuring Kenny Aronoff on drums (stepping in as Chad Smith was unavailable at the time). The second half is a collection of live songs recorded during the band's show in Phoenix on September 23rd, 2009, which so far have only been released as bonus tracks or single B-sides.

TRACKLISTING
01. Lighten Up (Live In Chicago) / 02. Big Foot (Live In Seattle) / 03. Last Temptation (Live In Seattle)
04. Something Going Wrong (Live In Boston) / 05. Oh Yeah (Live In Phoenix) / 06. Down The Drain (Live In Phoenix)
07. Turnin' Left (Live In Phoenix) / 08. My Kinda Girl (Live In Phoenix) / 09. Learning To Fall (Live In Phoenix)

Though recording success was not the motive for forming the band, the debut album "Chickenfoot" found a very willing audience and became one of the biggest successes of 2009. It ended up selling more than 800.000 units and being a Top 5 and platinum record in the USA and Top 20 virtually everywhere in the world. The follow-up "III" repeated that success and proved again that arena rock can be the most exciting thing around.
