Joe Satriani will release his 15th album, “Shockwave Supernova”, on July 24.
Co-produced by Satriani and John Cuniberti, the guitarist recorded the project late last year at Skywalker Sound in Lucas Valley, CA, with keyboardist and guitarist Mike Keneally, drummer Marco Minnemann and bassist Bryan Beller.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better band to help bring these songs to life,” says Satriani.
The guitarist is joined by a second rhythm section for four tracks: drummer Vinnie Colaiuta – who has worked with Frank Zappa, Sting and Paul Simon, among others – and Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney.
Satriani named “Shockwave Supernova” after his alter ago, one that he steps into for live performances.
The guitarist is previewing the album with a sample of “On Peregrine Wings.”
He will launch The Shockwave Tour in Nantes, France on September 17.
Satriani will join Steve Vai and Animals As Leaders for “A Benefit For Cliff III”, a third benefit concert in support of music industry veteran and good friend Cliff Cultreri.
The event will take place on Friday, June 12th at 8 PM, at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.
