Steve Vai Celebrates Highly Anticipated ‘Modern Primitive’ With Fiery Unreleased Track, “Dark Matter”
Features Vai’s Previously Unreleased Work Recorded Between 1984 and 1990
Two decades after rock legend Steve Vai released 1990’s groundbreaking Passion And Warfare, the master guitarist and composer is proud to release Passion And Warfare 25th Anniversary Edition – a celebration of one of the greatest and most influential rock guitar albums ever recorded, remastered from original analog tapes and featuring 4 bonus tracks from the album’s recording sessions.
In addition to a special 25th anniversary world tour where fans can hear Vai perform Passion And Warfare in its entirety for the first time ever, this momentous occasion is made even more special by the release of Vai’s Modern Primitive – his highly anticipated ‘lost’ album featuring a collection of previously unreleased tracks written following the release of 1984’s Flex-Able including our personal favorite, the newly released “Dark Matter”.

A raw, heavy track, “Dark Matter” is a celebration of Vai’s signature sound and seamlessly blends distorted, spicy melodies with an infectious groove that makes it both impossible to sit still and listeners marvel yet again at Vai’s genius as a guitarist and composer.
