(San Francisco, CA) February 19, 2019 – JOE SATRIANI has had a long and acclaimed solo career, his awards and accolades from fans and the industry alike are unending. Yet, through all of that, SATRIANI has often mentioned in interviews the musical trio that launched the next step in his musical career, his first band, the Squares, formed in Berkeley, CA in the late 70’s. Until now, no recordings of the inception of the legendary SATRIANI sound was available. Now that is all about to change! On April 5, 2019, Squares – Best of the Early 80’s Demoswill be released on SATRIANI’s own, Strange Beautiful Music imprint. First single, “I Love How You Love Me,” premieres today on BILLBOARD.

As SATRIANI explains, “We werepart Van Halen and part Everly Brothers. A mix of heavy metal, rock ‘n’ roll, punk and new wave. We were hard to pin down and categorize, which is most likely why we never ‘made it’!” However, SATRIANI never lost his love for that time or that music.

What remains today are the original, early ’80’s demos recorded and mixed by the bands then live sound engineer John Cuniberti. They have restored the original recordings, brought them into the digital world, and with loving hands and ears, John has remixed the best of what the band created in studio. According to SATRIANI, “They sound better than ever. John was careful to preserve the band’s original intent with regards to song arrangements, sound and vibe, and in some cases, extremely creative mix ideas.”

Squares – Best of the Early 80’s Demosis produced and mixed by John Cuniberti, with Satrianias Executive Producer. The album features lyrics by Neil Sheehan, Satriani on (of course) guitar, Andy Milton on lead vocals & bass, and Jeff Campitelli on drums, all three lending vocals to the mix.
