Joe Satriani, Dan Patlansky, Shockwave TourJoe Satriani’s already hotly anticipated Shockwave Tour, due to kick off in the UK in November, received an extra injection of talent today with the announcement that Dan Patlansky will join the tour as a special guest.

The South African guitarist and singer/songwriter released his first full length album, Standing at the Station, in 2004, and in the decade since has opened for Bruce Springsteen, been endorsed by Fender and received a growing number of awards.

Patlansky’s new album, Dear Silence Thieves, which ranked as the top blues rock album of 2014 by Blues Rock Review, will be released in the UK on April 27th, and he’ll play a series of solo dates there before hooking up with Satriani in the fall.

To keep today’s celebration going, the blues-rocker just released the first single from the upcoming album, “Backbite.” Check it out below.
