'Meet the Meatbats:' Win a Copy Before the Official Release!

Chad Smith is a famous drummer, slamming the kit for both the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chickenfoot. Now, he's ready to release Meet the Meatbats, the debut from his solo project Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats. No, these Meatbats are not Glam - they are more a jazz/funk/rock fusion sort of project - but they rock nonetheless! You can preview some of the smooth sounds by clicking the band's official Myspace.

Meet the Meatbats hits stores September 15, but you can win a copy before the official release date! Just send an email to and write "Meatbat" in the subject line. Please provide your legal name and mailing address so I can send your prize in the event your name is drawn at random. Enter by 11:59 pm EST on Friday, August 28, 2009. Entries received after this time will be discarded. Three readers will win a copy of the debut disc. Good luck.

Here's the official release on the band:

Bombastic, funky, sexy and loud, Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers & Chickenfoot) is breaking out on his own with guitar star Jeff Kollman, multi-faceted keyboardist Ed Roth, and Motor City bass ace Kevin Chown. Together, they comprise what is easily one of the most interesting and unpredictable instrumental bands to come along in years; Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats. Their sound creates a new sonic experience with a cutting edge and a plethora of influences, fusing together styles as diverse as classic rock, old school funk, punk, and 70's R&B.

Look for Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats to inspire a new generation of instrumental music fans. Pick up their debut CD, "Meet the Meatbats" released by Warrior Records via Universal Music Group Distribution.

I like Chad Smith so much and his work with Chickenfoot has been amazing, but this leaves a lot to be desired.

I'm really looking forward to hearing the rest of this. I do hope that, on other tracks, there are some extended solos. Jeff Kollman is a brilliant guitarist. Check out his blazing guitar work on the Mogg/Way album called Chocolate box. In some ways, he out-Schenkers Schenker on that record.
