Joe Satriani Kicks Off World Tour This Summer

NEW YORK, NY - On June 25, guitar virtuoso and Epic recording artist Joe Satriani is set to release his eighth studio album Strange Beautiful Music. Satriani can be heard performing his patented guitar work this summer during his world tour beginning in Sofia, Bulgaria, bringing with him the new melodies from the fourteen track Strange Beautiful Music, as well as hits from such classics as Surfing with the Alien, Flying in a Blue Dream, and tracks from his recent certified gold DVD Live in San Francisco.

Strange Beautiful Music is a departure from his previous album, the Grammy nominated Engines of Creation. Joe took a new route with Strange Beautiful Music by employing bassist Matt Bissonette and drummer Jeff Campitelli and creatively allowing both players to add their own arrangements, as would a traditional rock band. This new creative process resulted in one of the most elaborate recordings Satriani has done to date. The intricacies and the layering of the guitars and bass bring Satriani’s famous riff-saturated jams to soaring heights.

The sympathies displayed on Strange Beautiful Music also reflect a new dimension to Satriani’s epic strumming, with songs ranging from soft and soulful, to straight-up six string sensations. The new album also features such tracks as the spiritual “Chords of Life,” “You Saved My Life,” and a cameo by fellow guitar legend, Robert Fripp, on the Santo and Johnny’s classic, “Sleep Walk.” Satriani, a player in the industry for over 14 years, promises a different feel to this album. I was looking to do something that I haven’t done before, to bring something new and different to the table, explains Satriani. The end result is an album where the firework inducing rock solos are accompanied with a more melodic overall feel, an emotional departure for the renowned axe grinder.

In addition to prepping for a world tour, Joe has kept himself occupied with recent and upcoming live performances. In early April, Joe performed his soulful rendition of the “National Anthem” at opening day of the 2002 Major League Baseball season for the Oakland Athletics. Satriani has been known as the San Francisco sports team hero by also playing the National Anthem for San Francisco’s Giants and 49ers. On April 27, Joe and his band will be performing some old favorites at the California Music Awards (the awards show formerly known as the BAMMies), where Satriani is also up for the Outstanding Guitarist award. From there Joe is off to complete two rescheduled dates from the G3 tour (with Steve Vai and John Petrucci) in Mexico City and Monterrey, Mexico.
