JOE SATRIANI Completes Album, Plots Tour

December 3, 2007

Greg Prato of reports: Guitarist Joe Satriani is near completion on his 12th studio album. While an album title and release date are still pending, tickets for an album-supporting U.K. tour are moving briskly.

"Yesterday was a great day — we officially finished recording," Satriani tells "This is definitely a rocking record. We set out some parameters, and when I say 'we,' I'm working with long-time collaborator John Cuniberti, he's engineering and co-producing with me. Jeff Campitelli is playing drums, Matt Bissonette is back playing bass on eight of the 10 songs, and Eric Caudieux came back to do some digital editing and sound design."

Expectedly, the release will showcase Satriani's six-string talents, but will also incorporate different approaches for the guitarist. "I decided once again to push the envelope with how expressive we can get the guitar to be. And how unusual we can get the guitar playing from song to song. It's a record that's eclectic — we've got some straight-ahead rocker songs," he says.
