Steve Vai will launch his 25th anniversary collection containing his two albums “Modern Primitive” and “Passion And Warfare” on June 24.
The 2CD pack is a collection of classic tracks and previously unreleased material. “Modern Primitive” includes works-in-progress the guitar virtuoso penned following the release of his debut album “Flex-Able” in 1984 – which he has completed especially for the release.
The pack includes a bonus remastering of his 1990 record “Passion And Warfare”. Vai will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of this release with a world tour later this month, in which he’ll perform the album in full.
Performing this record from top to bottom, with some very special surprises in the works, is something I’ve always dreamed of doing. There are songs here I’ve never performed before, and I’m delighted that 25 years after its release, I feel as though my guitar chops are as much up to the task as ever before.
