    Default Get a new single out there already

    OK.....Bigfoot is still getting some airplay in my area but I have never heard 3.5 letters at all, I know they shot a video for it and I know what they were going for with the song but I honestly think they need to get Different Devil out there and push it HARD. Start giving interviews, shoot a video, maybe even record an acoustic version of it....just jam it down people's throats until they get how awesome of a song that is.

    The album is very, very good but if no one hears it.....well.....

    In one interview, Sammy said "Different Devil" will be released as a single in January. They are probably going to release it to coincide with whatever Van Halen is supposed to announce in January. Right at the same time to gin up some competition I suspect. DD is the strongest single they could release to steal some of the VH thunder.

    Can't understand releasing 3.5 Letters as a single.

    Worst song they have done.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Agreed. Releasing the most radio-friendly of the singles would be a sly move right now.

    I'd personally prefer III to be judged on its own merits and not have the band engage in this shit but whatever.

    agree with the last part 100%, I have no interest in seeing the bands "compete" at this stage of the game.

    Amen to that... but thats pretty much been the forumla : few songs about sex, few about the world & how we're trashing it, few about politics..
    Sam, Dave,Gary... who cares. its all about what makes you feel good.

    Last Temptation should have been the 2nd single. 3.5 would have been ok as the last single. Something to put the band back in the spotlight after 6 months or so.

    Apples and oranges. For the most part, I've never understood why people say one band is better than another. I'll admit that even Steeley Dan is good. I just don't care for their music. Get my point?

    Personally, I'm really diggin Lighten Up right now...

    I think they have saved some of the more 'radio-friendly' potential singles for the first half of 2012 to be released closer to a larger scale spring/summer tour.

    Different Devil in January, and hopefully both Up Next and Come Closer (at different times) sometime before summer.

    Personally I think Come Closer would be an excellent song to be featured in a 'serious/dark' relationship movie (but not in the stupid romantic comedy-type that are a dime a dozen).

    I think the only Chickenfoot single you could expect to be released between now and the new year would be if they covered Santa Clause is Coming to Town. Play list become even more limited for new music when stations are throwing in holiday tunes in their rotation over the next couple of weeks.

    "Oh yeah" got a bit of radio play here in australia and was used in our AFL Football campaigns/tv adds.
    Theres no reason why "Different devil" cant be a crossover hit. Its got the best pontential ever, and is right up there with "When its love", "Love walks in". As Bad to the bone said, it needs PUSH.
    It would be great to see a hard rock/heavy metal act getting a hit amongst all these new "fake" wannabes, house rap music or whatever they call it....
    What is understood need not be discussed

    "Dont disturb my paradise. I've asked you once. I've asked you nice" - "SERIOUS JU JU"

    why does anyone care? You got the album and it's good. It's not like releasing another single (off an album you already have) is gonna change your life at all.

    Good point. Plus other than CF fans nobody really pays attention to this band. People still ask me who they are when I wear their t-shirt. The station we have in our area rarely plays Chickenfoot, it plays mostly the new rock bands (Cookie Monster Metal as Brett calls it) and when they do CF just sounds out of place. Its hard to find a station that they would fit into anymore.
