“A Door Into Summer” Debuts at # 8 on Classic Rock Radio Chart
More U.S. Tour Dates Announced
(LOS ANGELES, CA) – Joe Satriani’s 14th studio album, Unstoppable Momentum, has earned the multi-Grammy nominated guitarist his highest chart debut in over 20 years. The album debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #42. The first single, “A Door Into Summer,” debuted at #8 on the Mediabase Classic Rock airplay chart.
Satriani now embarks on a much-anticipated world tour, which kicked off May 18th in Istanbul, Turkey. U.S. dates will begin on August 29th in San Diego, CA, before winding its way back to the west coast, concluding with a show on October 26 in Oakland, CA. Joining Satriani on the road are veteran band mate Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai) on keyboards, along with a new rhythm-section, featuring bassist Bryan Beller (Dethklok, Dweezil Zappa) and drummer Marco Minnemann (Adrian Belew, Steve Wilson).
For two decades, Satriani has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star “G3” guitar extravaganza. His 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.
