MUSIC NEWS & NOTES
After logging in over 150 dates on the road last year, The Swon Brothers are releasing brand new music. The duo spent the better part of 2016 on Carrie Underwood's Storyteller Tour, and also played a full slate of their own shows. They didn't let the road or the miles under them deter their focus from creating new music for their fans, so they went into the studio last fall with producer Brad Hill (Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne) and came out with a new EP called PRETTY COOL SCARS, which will be released on March 17th. Fans can download the lead single, “Don't Call Me,” from the forthcoming EP on iTunes HERE TODAY! Zach and Colton describe “Don't Call Me” as a song about being in a bad situation, but becoming stron- ger despite the circumstances. “It's a song I think we can all relate to,” says Colton. “It's about finally getting to a point where you get over the things you need to get over, and you can move on with your life. I think it can represent people in a lot of different ways.” “We always like to try out songs in our live show before we make the decision to record them. We like to listen to our fans that way, and hands down, our fans gave us every indication that this was definitely a keeper. We knew we had something golden when we just sat down and played it for the first time in our living room with just the two of us, and it just felt like it was written for us,” says, Zach. The new single is one of six songs that appear on PRETTY COOL SCARS and Zach and Colton can't wait to share this new music with their fans.
FIRST EVER “BEST OF” PLUS LIVE COLLECTION INCLUDES BRAND NEW SONG “DIVINE TERMINATION”
Supergroup Chickenfoot will release “Divine Termination,” its first new tune in 5 years on BEST + LIVE, the group's first ever best of collection, on March 10, 2017. Chickenfoot features front man Sammy Hagar, guitar god Joe Satriani, bassist Michael Anthony (Van Halen), and drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers).
In addition to “Divine Termination,” BEST + LIVE includes over 90 minutes of live music – for the first time released on CD. Sammy Hagar says, “Listening to this collection of songs from the ‘Foot brings back memories of some of the most fun I've ever had in a band. The chemistry between Chad, Joe, Mike and me is very special. It's almost like visual music -- you can see us having fun when you listen to these songs.” In May 2016, Chickenfoot reunited for two highly-anticipated onetime shows at Harrah's Lake Tahoe, and played their first complete set in more than six years, along with a special unveiling of the new tune “Divine Termination.” Joe Satriani describes the track as “bone crunching, hell raising rock, dripping with attitude and vibe. Just the way Chickenfoot likes it!”
Both the extra CD “LIVE” and the bonus tracks on the best of feature a 13 song strong set list including almost every song from Chickenfoot's debut album as well as Sammy Hagar's old Montrose classic “Bad Motor Scooter,” The Who's “My Generation” and Joe Satriani's interpretation of “The Star Spangled Banner” – all recorded live in Phoenix 2009 and available for the first time on CD (previously only available as video on the DVD/ Blu-ray “Get Your Buzz On.
