Joe Satriani, one of rock music's most renowned electric guitarists, has announced details of his highly anticipated 14th studio album, "Black Swans And Wormhole Wizards". The album will be made available in the U.S. on October 5 (one day earlier internationally) via Epic Records.

On "Black Swans And Wormhole Wizards", Satriani's classic sound is accompanied by a surprisingly rich new texture. The first single, "Light Years Away", is destined to be a hit, alongside several other high energy offerings, like "Wormhole Wizards" and "Premonition".

Satriani joined with former VAN HALEN front man Sammy Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' drummer Chad Smith to form the stand-out rock collaboration CHICKENFOOT. After a highly successful world tour, their self-titled debut album was certified gold in the U.S. by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipments in excess of 500,000 copies.

Over the last two decades, Joe Satriani has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star "G3" guitar extravaganza. As one of the world's most renowned instrumental artists, Satriani recorded "Live in Paris: I Just Wanna Rock!" in 2008 at The Grand Rex Theater in Paris, France. The live two-disc CD and DVD was released in February 2010 through Epic Records and contained such memorable songs as "Surfing With The Alien", "Flying In A Blue Dream", along with recent hits like "Super Colossal" and "I Just Wanna Rock". Of his many solo albums, two have gone platinum and four others went gold, with 15 Grammy nominations between them.
