JOE SATRIANI

ANNOUNCES “SURFING TO SHOCKWAVE”
2016 RETROSPECTIVE TOUR
 
 

 
CELEBRATING “30 YEARS OF MIND-BENDING GUITAR DAREDEVILRY”
 
Los Angeles, CA – September 15, 2015   In 1986 JOE SATRIANI released his first solo album through Relativity Records, “Not of This Earth”.  Fast-forward to this year when SATRIANI released his 15th solo album, “Shockwave Supernova” to critical acclaim.  To mark this major milestone anniversary, SATRIANI will bring to life the “Surfing to Shockwave” 2016 Tour, an evening spotlighting his 30-year career.

The 45-date tour celebrating “30 Years of Mind-Bending Guitar Daredevilry,” a phrase coined in a June 2014 career-defining retrospective feature in Rolling Stone, launches February 25th at Seattle’s legendary Paramount Theatre crossing the US into Canada ending April 24th.  The shows will highlight music over SATRIANI’s entire career, including songs the legendary guitarist hasn’t played live in over 20 years!
 
This August, the world renowned guitarist released his 15th studio album, hitting Satriani’s highest chart debut at #19 on Billboard’s Top 200 Current Albums Chart.  In addition, the album also debuted at # 3 on the Billboard Rock Chart and ranks as the highest charting all-instrumental rock album on Billboard’s Top 200 in the SoundScan era. 
 
The critical acclaim for Shockwave Supernova was unprecedented:
 
“…Joe Satriani has proven himself to be one of the most imaginative, brilliant and talented rock guitarists ever to strum six strings.” - Rolling Stone
 
“…Satriani leans into ringing arpeggios that build into one of the soaring lead lines that have helped him rack up five gold albums and one platinum LP, along with 15 Grammy nominations since 1989.”
- The Wall Street Journal
 

“The immutable fact which emerges from repeated listens to Shockwave Supernova is that this is a combo for the ages and maybe the best one we’ve heard on Satriani record to date.”  - Popmatters

 
For two decades, the guitar virtuoso has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star “G3” guitar extravaganza.  Satriani’s studio and live recordings have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide to date and of his many solo albums, two have gone platinum and four others went gold, with 15 Grammy nominations between them.  His side project, Chickenfoot, featuring former Van Halen front man Sammy Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith saw their debut album certified gold and their second studio album debuted at #9.
 
Joe’s touring band remains Marco Minnemann on drums, Bryan Beller on bass and Mike Keneally on keys & guitar.

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT

QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

This is a band that offers you a perfect power metal album. The sound is a sonic picasso of indulgent riffs and screams. This album is full of a master class in perfect power metal. The strength of this band is unmatched. Their lyrics are straight through the heart and the production value is spot on. 

Here is a band that you will need to watch for 2018. They are about to make a huge impact on the metal scene.

Babylon A.D. Interview

Babylon A.D. is about to release a new album on Frontiers records.REVOLUTION HIGHWAY will be released on November 10th on Frontiers Records. The Band, still with original members, will be celebrating 30 years. The songs on this album are undeniable and certifiable hard rock gems. The band has never sounded better or tighter. This is pure American rock and roll. Hands down one of the best albums for 2017. Check out their new album.  10/10 wolf howls Below is an earlier interview I did with guitarist Ron Freschi.





Interview Ron Freschi Babylon A.d./ Syrym "We are discussing  recording a new album"
Back in the day when MTV actually played music videos, Babylon A.D. was one of the best hard rock bands to tear across the television screen. The songs were filled with sex and life and just a pure rock and roll sense that few bands actually capture. Their  melodic brand of style was soon eclipsed by grunge and the fickle whims of the recording industry, and the rest is history. But they n…
