Joe Satriani, one of rock music's most renowned electric guitarists, has announced details of his highly anticipated fourteenth studio album, 'Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards'.

On the new album 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 US by the Recording Industry Association of America with over 500,000 sales.

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 fifteen Grammy nominations between them.

The UK release of Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards dovetails Joe Satriani's autumn 2010 UK tour, tickets for all UK shows are on sale now and available from the national credit card hotline 0844 888 9991 or can be booked online at www.ticketline.co.uk.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
