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.

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.
