Beyond The Supernova Box Set Available For Pre-order!

I'm thrilled to be able to bring to you "Beyond The Supernova" on DVD. ZZ's stunning film is more than a documentary, it is an artform unto itself and it tells a unique story that only he could have discovered. It's a raw and revealing, behind the scenes look at a musician's cathartic, artistic process while on a world tour. The film combines beautiful, evocative imagary and music with a backstage pass to a rock band's romp through Europe and Asia. In addition to the DVD we've included the film's soundtrack with new original music from ZZ and myself, extended live tracks from the film, as well as ten bonus tracks. This has been a fantastic project to work on. Thanks to my team, crew and family for their great work and support. Enjoy! - Joe

Joe Announces 2019 G4 Experience

Joe has announced G4 Experience V5.0: Rocks the Desert, the latest edition of his annual guitar camp.

This year's edition will feature Journey's Neal Schon, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Bumblefoot, Megadeth's Kiko Loureiro, former David Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar and Lari Basilio. It will take place January 3-7, 2019 at Hotel Zosa in Palm Springs, CA.

"The students that have come to the first four G4 Experiences have been as unique and eclectic as you could imagine, so for G4 Experience V5.0, I've put together a team of instructors that really reflects that diverse nature," Satriani said. "The lineup this year is probably our best yet. It's so exciting, getting to be so totally immersed and getting to be so close to these great players. You never know what's going to happen and at the end of the week you'll think, 'I went somewhere beautiful, I had fun, I made some new friends, and I grew as a musician.' And there's nothing better than that."

In addition, Satriani will be joined at G4 Experience V5.0: Rocks the Desert by his own touring band, Mike Keneally (guitar and keyboards), Bryan Beller (bass), and Joe Travers (drums), all of whom will also serve as instructors and accompaniment for each night's all-star concert.

Presented annually by Dreamcatcher Events, G4 Experience V5.0: Rocks the Desert is an all-inclusive event with a jam-packed schedule sure to keep guests involved from morning until the wee hours of the night. It will feature four days and nights of activities, including multiple workshops led by each instructor, access to fully loaded jam rooms, meet-and-greets and nightly concert performances.

A variety of guest packages are available, with all registrations including accommodations, three meals a day, parking, Wi-Fi, and an exclusive welcome kit from D'Addario. Musical gear is not provided. Guests are asked to please bring their own instruments.

Announced today, Joe has joined forces with Stingray Qello to release his tour documentary, "Beyond the Supernova" filmed, edited, directed and produced by ZZ Satriani, while on tour in 2016 and 2017. The film received high praise from fans and critics, alike, when it made its debut last October at the Mill Valley Film Festival, which also included a special intimate live performance by the star guitarist.

Satriani said of the collaboration, "Stingray Qello is the place to go for music lovers and fans who thrive on live performances from their favorite artists. I'm always finding new concerts on the site, sounding and looking great, streaming at the stroke of a key! I'm so happy our film "Beyond The Supernova" has found a home at Stingray Qello."

The documentary highlights the 30 years since the release of his multi-platinum selling album, Surfing with the Alien, as Joe searches for the next step in his career. "Beyond the Supernova" is a tour documentary that offers a glimpse into the mind of the guitarist. Join Joe while he performs music from Shockwave Supernova through Asia and Europe and as he looks back on his career. We learn of the autobiographical concept behind the record and how it plays into determining Joe Satriani's next creative step. We'll also go behind the scenes of the "Surfing To Shockwave World Tour" featuring performances from Joe, Mike Keneally, Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann, as well as cameo appearances by guitarists Steve Vai and Guthrie Govan.

"It is an exciting and incredibly rewarding moment for us to announce that a legend like Joe Satriani has selected Stingray Qello as the only online streaming platform to share his critically acclaimed documentary, Beyond the Supernova, with his fans," said Frederick Ranger, Vice-President, Product Marketing of Stingray.

Joe Announces the release of "What Happens Next" on January 12th
+ New G3 U.S. Tour with John Petrucci and Phil Collen

Today Joe announces the release of his 16th solo album, "What Happens Next", set for release, January 12, 2018 on Sony/Legacy Recordings. Just a day prior to the album release, Satch revives his G3 tour entity, inviting Dream Theater's John Petrucci and Def Leppard lead guitarist, Phil Collen to join him. The G3 tour launches on January 11 in Seattle, WA and continues across the U.S. before winding up on February 25 in Milwaukee, WI.

There is a special tour pre-sale promotion giving fans the opportunity to buy concert tickets with the new album as well as VIP packages. Visit https://lnk.to/WHN! for more information, pre-sale opportunities and specific market pre-sale and on-sale dates.

The new, instrumentally electrifying album features a power trio of legendary status; Joe on guitar and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple/Black Country Communion) and drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), the latter reuniting with Joe for the first time since their work in the supergroup Chickenfoot. Satch is once again joined by producer/engineer/mixer Mike Fraser, his frequent collaborator over the last 20 years, on What Happens Next. Fraser is well-known for recording/mixing every AC/DC album since 1990's The Razors Edge along with his classic works with Joe going back to the release of Crystal Planet in 1998.

These new tracks literally vibrate the soul with an energy rarely found these days. From the dynamic opening track, "Energy", to the majestic crunch of "Thunder High On The Mountain", and the easy, sensual cords of "Smooth Soul". This unparalleled rock-rhythm section gives What Happens Next a depth of groove that sets it apart from Joe's other work.

Since its debut in 1996, Joe's G3 tour has featured the world's greatest guitarists (everyone from Steve Vai and Eric Johnson to Steve Lukather and Robert Fripp) and has become a consistent concert hall sell-out attraction in the U.S., South America, Europe, Australia and Japan. "I could say that I'm surprised at the durability of G3 and how much it's grown, but in a way I'm not," Joe says with a laugh, "I think part of its charm and its mojo is in the chemistry of having three top guitarists share what they do on stage. It's fun, it's unpredictable, it’s wild, it's everything you could want in a show."

"What Happens Next" Track Listing:

1 Energy
2 Catbot
3 Thunder High On The Mountain
4 Cherry Blossoms

Phil Collen (Def Leppard) Pens G4 Anthem Dedicated to Joe

When Phil Collen stepped onboard to join this year's G4 Experience, he went all-in! As anyone who has attended the camp can tell you, it's a very special atmosphere that is created each year when a couple hundred guitarists of all levels gather to spend a week celebrating and exploring the guitar together. You can expect to be inspired the way Phil was (before even arriving!). Just a few spots left - come join us. http://g4experience.com/

Listen to a clip and pre-order "Yo To Joe (G4 Anthem)" at iTunes

Press release follows:

(Los Angeles, CA) - Soon after Def Leppard's PHIL COLLEN was invited to join the annual G4 Experience, led by guitar great JOE SATRIANI, he was moved to write an instrumental in homage to the guitar master.

"I was honored when Joe invited me to join the G4 experience and I decided to write and record an instrumental track called "Yo 2 Joe" as a tribute to him. I was further honored when he played on the track with me because he is such an amazing artist. I wanted the track to reflect the vibe of his influential Surfing with the Alien album. Thirty years later, he continues to wow generations of guitar players and music fans alike."

The track will be released as a single on July 21 and will be given free to those attending the camp. Pre-orders for the track begin today: flyt.it/yo2joeiTunes

Also joining SATRIANI and COLLEN at this year's G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary are Warren DeMartini [Ratt], and Paul Gilbert. The event takes place on July 24-28 at Asilomar Center in Carmel, CA.

For its fourth installment, the G4 Experience enjoys a game-changing and historic first. The camp will celebrate the writing, recording, and performance of SATRIANI's seminal GRAMMY Award-nominated, platinum-selling 1987 epic, Surfing with the Alien-one of the most successful instrumental guitar albums ever made. Recognizing the record's 30th anniversary, campers will enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pull back the curtain on the album with the visionaries behind the music.

SATRIANI will be joined by his original live band during the record's tour cycle, Stu Hamm and Jonathan Mover, return for the first time since 1995 for the evening's performances.

RIP Bob Coburn

Such sad news that Bob Coburn has passed away. I knew Bob, LA’s “Godfather of Rock and Roll”, DJ extraordinaire, and host of “Rockline” for nearly thirty years. He was the ultimate professional on and off the air, and was a great champion and supporter of my music. He introduced me to millions of fans with his radio shows and I can’t thank him enough for that alone. I will miss him and all that he was. My deepest condolences go out to his family. - Joe

SUPERNOVA REMIX: THE FREE EP!

I'm dropping this cool five song re-mix EP as a gift to all my fans who have made the "Shockwave Supernova" album such a great success around the world. I can't thank you enough!

I called my most talented buddies near and far to get a new spin on five fan favorites from my latest release.

John Cuniberti and Eric Caudieux team up for both "Goodbye Supernova" and "Stars Race Across The Sky" and turn in two breathtaking and modern re-mixes.

Guitarist, engineer and producer Keith More from London, England, pumps up and mashes out two rockers, "In My Pocket" and "Cataclysmic".

John Cuniberti revisits "Lost In A Memory" and turns up the modern textures and drama to make a very spiritual and powerful remix.

And, as a little taste of what's to come in 2017, I asked ZZ to put together a short trailer for his full length experimental tour documentary about our "Shockwave Tour 2016". He followed us across Europe for almost two months and captured the sound and the fury, and all the crazy stuff no one else sees from the audience. Filmed and edited in ZZ's unique style, we hope to release the full documentary in the first half of 2017.

Thank You from Joe / Little Kids Rock Contest Winners Announced

Thank you to everyone who entered the Little Kids Rock raffle (ALL 2,000 of you!!) to win a signed JS 20th Anniversary Ibanez -- your enthusiasm has brought a great amount of attention to this wonderful organization that helps children engage with music in their lives.

And our grand prize winners are... *drumroll*... Brian & Debbie Currier!!! Congratulations! On June 4th, Brian and Debbie flew out to meet Joe and receive their grand prize and watch Joe sign the guitar right in front of them. Runner up prize winners were Shane Davis (autographed Chrome Dome) and Rick Henry (autographed Ultimate Box Collection).

Joe had this to say: "I wanted to congratulate Brian & Debbie Currier and thank them for supporting Little Kids Rock as well as all of the other folks who entered the contest!"

Brian & Debbie (from 30+ combined Satriani shows) had this to say: "We have so many great memories of meeting Joe. He is kind, generous and a VERY cool guy! Winning this contest is simply icing on the cake."

The funds raised through the raffle will enable Little Kids Rock to bring the transformational gift of music to more than 700 public school children by helping launch Modern Band music programs in schools that may otherwise be in danger of having their music programming eliminated due to budget cuts. Little Kids Rock provides professional development training to music teachers and donates all of the instruments and curriculum they need to teach their students to play the popular musical styles that they know and love on day one! Little Kids Rock is proud to support music programs across the country, and specifically in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the program was founded and currently impacts the lives of nearly 12,000 K-12 public school students in more than 100 schools.

G4 Experience 2016 w/ Eric Johnson, Mike Keneally, Alex Skolnick
+ special appearance by Steve Vai!

AN INVITATION FROM JOE

I've got something very cool in store for you next year. Something we haven't done yet with the G4 Experience.

The G4 Experience in 2016 will literally take me back home. In the past two years the camp was in beautiful Cambria, CA. but we started looking at the East Coast for a variety of cool reasons. The idea of Long Island came up and I thought it would be interesting because of the obvious connection. Funnily enough, Glen Cove Mansion, where we'll be August 8-12, 2016, is very close to where I'm from. Once we chose the spot, the 2016 G4 Experience took on a very special meaning. We never repeat the same formula, but this homecoming really helped us reshape next year's camp.

Obviously, I grew up in Westbury, Long Island, but there's more to it than that. When I was a 14-year-old budding guitar player, I started my career at high school dances in the surrounding towns. At 16, I was playing bars in the area. At 17, I was doing weekend road trips to the Hamptons and performing at the clubs there.

My whole musical foundation starting on the drums at the age of nine centers around that area. I have so many family and friends there. Steve Vai and I became best friends back in high school! There's just this special concentration of like-minded guitar players.

Now, we’re inviting you into that circle…

This year, everybody will be staying in the incredible Glen Cove Mansion. As far as instructors go, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Alex Skolnick, and Mike Keneally will all be joining me. As always, there will be quite a few elements we change up. Of course, you'll get that incredible immersive interaction between students and teachers within the clinics. However, we're evolving to not only keep the campers happy, but also to keep the whole thing interesting for the performers too. It goes beyond what you'd get at a gig or a regular clinic or class. We're doing something unique.

The G4 Experience puts you together with 200 other extremely talented players from all stylistic sides of the guitar and from all over the world. You get to hang out with them, make connections, and trade wisdom. The classes are perfect for all levels, and they go deep. We're not introducing any sort of competition or anything like that. This is all about learning together and tailoring your experience to your needs.

Being indoors at Glen Cove also allows the instructors complete control. The environment is totally reflective of the sounds we want to achieve. That's a big part of this.

Ultimately, this is a great opportunity for everybody to make some incredible connections. The students become a catalyst for my reconnection with the instructors. I think it's going to be unforgettable. I guarantee you that the students are going to feel this incredible atmosphere of camaraderie and feel the musical sharing.

Welcome to the inner circle. Welcome to the G4 Experience 2016.

- Joe

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.

Tickets will be on sale beginning September 25th with exclusive Joe Satriani meet & greet and VIP packages available on sale starting September 23rd, for details please visit: http://www.satriani.com/road/#na2016_dates
