Rock guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani will release Shockwave Supernova, his fifteenth studio album and first for Legacy Recordings, July 24th, 2015. With 15 brand-new tracks, Shockwave Supernova is classic Satch with aural twists that will make fans of all ages take notice.
Shockwave Supernova, a concept album based on Satriani’s unique on-stage alter ego of the same name, finds the world-renowned guitarist reaching deep into his bag of tricks, offering extensive, blues-influenced jams (“San Francisco Blue’) and intense, complex instrumentation (“A Phase I’m Going Through,” “Crazy Joey”).
The album also features a host of unexpectedly introspective tunes, with “Butterfly and Zebra,” “Goodbye Supernova” and “All of My Life” conveying deep reflection in their melodies. Recorded at Skywalker Sound, Shockwave Supernova is pure sonic ecstasy for fans old and new.
