New Steve Vai! "Gravity Storm" from the forthcoming album "The Story of Light".

New Steve Vai sample from the album due out 8/14/12.
I can't believe I'm the first guy reporting this here.
The boss would be disappointed!

Give it a listen!

Pretty cool.

The hook is almost 'Stevie Rayish', not to ignore all the Vai in there though.

Then it gets 'out there', like we expect from Steve... I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of the album after hearing this.

Thanks for the heads up!

I dig it. It has most of the things I really like about Vai. It's a little crazy, but not too crazy, just the Vai crazy the made me like him in the first place. I look forward to getting the full album! It's definitely no "tattoo" .

I can't tell if he's playing with Mojo or a UV 7-string....

Man--I love the grind he's getting from the amp!
Cool groove, too.

Gees what the hell was that?!
I hope nothing more in the album sounds like that.
I really thought about a fly locked inside of somebody's intestines trying to get out!

I'm not a huge fan of Vai, but that track was very cool. If the rest of the album is like that I think I'll be buying it.

He's using the bar a lot on that one, but in a very different way than he has in the past

The picture of the album cover looks a lot like the "real Illusions" cover. Is it going to be the second part of the trilogy he was taking about?

Platnium copy of the Album pre ordered!

Nice to hear some new tracks from Mr Vai for a change.

Beats me, but there is some 7 string action on this album.

AFAIK this is just a stand alone album. Stripped down from the last few releases. Originally intended to be like "ALS", it evolved a bit past that, but there still aren't a ton of overdubs. (EDIT) That said, I don't have the full story, and it may be part of the trilogy, but I doubt it.

this is the second album with the theme from the first album.
am hoping for less singing on this album. wish he would just release a straight solo album.

I don't really care for this too much. I've never really liked his tracks which feature alot of dissonance. Hopefully there's more melodic tracks on the rest of the album.
