PACKAGES ON-SALE NOW  AT THE G4 EXPERIENCE

Los Angeles, CA (November 30, 2016) JOE SATRIANI reveals the details for Joe Satriani’s G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary July 24-28 at Asilomar Center in Carmel, CA. Packages are available at the camp’s official site starting today— http://g4experience.com/

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 longtime co-conspirator and Surfing with the Alien co-producer John Cuniberti in addition to other special guests. 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.

About Joe Satriani’s G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary, SATRIANI says, “To this day, every fan conversation ends up referencing Surfing with the Alien. We thought the best way to celebrate its 30th birthday would be to devote the 2017 G4 Experience to all things Surfing. It’s such a special moment for me, and I can’t wait to see everyone there so we can relive this album together and create new memories in the process.”

Sign-up is encouraged immediately as the event will sell out soon!

Detroit Prog quartet TILES has confirmed several new live appearances in the weeks ahead, and in addition, the band has just issued a short new video endorsement from Mike Portnoy.

Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Flying Colors, Dream Theater) praises the new TILES double album Pretending 2 Run backstage after The Winery Dogs show in Detroit. Portnoy and his son Max (Next To None) supply guest drums to the album – simultaneously, the first time the two have been recorded together – in addition to other luminaries including Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson), Mike Stern (Miles Davis), Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree) and Kim Mitchell. The record was produced by Terry Brown (Rush, Fates Warning) and is finished with artwork by Hugh Syme (Iron Maiden, Rush, Dream Theater).

See the new mini-video HERE or below:

Following their recent Northeastern US tour with Laser’s Edge label mates District 97, TILES has confirmed several new live performances for the Summer and early Fall months. The new gigs include a hometown show August 13th with Laser’s Edge kin Iris Divine as well as Mindmaze and Mare Crisium, followed by back-to-back shows September 29th and 30th at the Cleveland and Detroit nights of Sonic Voyage Fest alongside Circuline and Stratospheerius. Further updates will follow.

Released in April through the Laser’s Edge Group, Pretending 2 Run is sitting comfortably in the Top 20 of many monthly readers’ polls throughout Europe and is being hailed as one of 2016’s best Prog albums. PROG issued, “the Detroiters really turn up the heat,” calling the band’s delivery, “imaginative, expansive, colorful, diverse and more satisfying than ever.” Classic Rock claims, “whoever invests their time into Pretending 2 Run will have enjoyed every single second.” All Music stated, “Who says the concept album is dead? Brilliant.” iO Pages says, “TILES is still at the top of the progressive rock world. Pretending 2 Run will finish high in many year-end lists.”

Says Eclipsed, “Pretending 2 Run is an enormously complex album that reveals new secrets with each play.” Progression Magazine rated the record 4/5 including, “This album clearly sounds as if it took years to make. ‘Shelter In Place’… ranks as one of the strongest, most memorable tunes in the band’s catalog.”

Sea Of Tranquility’s 4.5/5 review boasts, “In a year when we’ve seen two longtime prog veterans, Dream Theater and TILES, release lengthy concept albums, I have to give TILES the nod as the more successful of the two…” Music Connection’s review includes, “they’ve upped the ante by giving the listener a double disc with an engaging storyline, meticulously arranged string and choral pieces, sweet vocal harmonies and tuneful jam-based rock, fusion and world beat sounds,” and About.com’s 4/5 review said, “Pretending 2 Run gives prog rock fans everything they could want in a big album.”

Headbanger’s Lifestyle praised, “TILES has delivered a real masterpiece extraordinaire,” and Absolute Zero Media notes, “Lush and epic prog metal – very, very impressive!” Musipedia Of Metal hails, “A progressive masterpiece. With so many great prog albums this year already, Pretending 2 Run could possibly be the best.” Polyprisma issued, “TILES has created something technically breathtaking and far beyond the norm,” and Profil Prog crowns the record, “A jewel of originality. Highly recommended!”

“The cathartic experience of playing live music has not changed over the 13 years of performing,” John Baizley said in a recent interview with the SF Weekly. “But the sense of relief and release I feel as an adult is as intense, if not more than, when I was younger.  The response to this record has been really, really overwhelming. There have been some pretty dramatic changes in the way that our audiences react to our songs, and I couldn’t be happier about that.”

Purple was released on Dec. 18 via the band’s own Abraxan Hymns label. The Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev) produced album has been universally praised with Pitchfork saying Purple features “some of the biggest, strong songs Baroness has ever written,” Entertainment Weekly calling the album “their finest release yet,” Rolling Stone Australia dubbing it “the most dynamic, robust guitar album this year,” Mojo echoing those sentiments, saying “Baroness have delivered their masterpiece: an album grounding their cosmic heaviosity with earthbound, compelling drama,” and German magazine Visions declaring “the quasi-comeback Purple is their best album to date.”

Purple and the songs from the album also landed on a number of year-end best of lists with “Shock Me” coming in at #10 on Entertainment Weekly’s Top 40 Songs of 2015, Pitchfork awarding it #6 on their Best Metal Albums of 2015 round-up and Rolling Stone placing the release at #7 on their 20 Best Metal Albums of 2015.
