LAS VEGAS, NV (Top40 Charts) Santana IV has debuted at #5 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart, #2 on Billboard's Top Current Chart, #2 on Billboard's Rock Chart, and #1 on Billboard's Independent Albums Chart. Released April 15, 2016 on Santana IV Records with distribution by Thirty Tigers/RED Distribution, the wildly anticipated studio album reunites the revered early '70s lineup of guitar icon Carlos Santana (guitar, vocals), Gregg Rolie (keyboards, lead vocals), Neal Schon (guitar, vocals), Michael Carabello (percussion) and Michael Shrieve (drums). The album signifies the first time in 45 years since 1971's multi-platinum classic Santana III that the quintet has recorded together. This album marks Santana's fourteenth Top 10 album.

"We are thrilled with the opening week's results of our new record Santana IV," says Michael Vrionis, President of Santana IV Records, LLC. "People were waiting for this project for over 40 years. We knew from the first day in the studio that this music would resonate with our fans. We can't thank them enough for their continued support."

Santana IV features 16 all-new tracks written and produced by the band that burst with the same unparalleled energy and superlative musicianship that made Santana a pioneering force in world music and a household name across the globe. Joining the core Santana IV band on the album are current Santana members Karl Perazzo (percussion) and Benny Rietveld (bass), with the legendary vocalist Ronald Isley guesting on two cuts.

Few bands can pick up a musical dialog after 45 years apart, but on Santana IV each band member reaches a new level of virtuosity and communal intuition on a collection of songs that easily stands side-by-side with the group's treasured early work.

"When you can go back and break new ground with joy and determination and some whoop-ass energy it gets you going," says Santana. "I think we achieved something very rare. This music was screaming to come out of us. It wasn't about nostalgia. It was about passion."

Santana IV is currently available on CD, Double 180 Gram Vinyl with Download Card and Digital configurations.
