Steve Vai To Release New Album "The Story Of Light", Headed to the UK For December 2012 Tour

For those who like nothing better than to kick back and relax with an album full of six string wizardry, this will be news for you. Legendary guitarist Steve Vai has announced details of his brand new forthcoming studio album, entitled "The Story Of Light". The album will be released in the UK on September 11th 2012 through Vai's own label Favored Nations Entertainment. The album will be a mostly instrumental work, but there are tracks featuring guest vocalists such as Aimee Mann and Beverly McClellan as well.

Steve will be bringing his new album (as well as highlights from his extensive back catalogue) to fans across America on a new US tour beginning next Wednesday (15th August), but he also plans to bring the tour to the UK for a six date tour this December. Kicking off in Portsmouth and finishing in Norwich, Mr Vai will play half a dozen shows across the length of England. Full details of the tour can be found below:
