Over the past two years, Steve Vai released a new studio album titled Inviolate and a record titled Vai/Gash he had been holding in his archive for three decades. In support of the new studio album, he staged a successful tour of North America and two run across Europe.
Favored Nations / Mascot Label Group presented the official music video for “Teeth Of The Hydra,” which has now been viewed over 6.1 million times.

Vai / Gash followed Inviolate, and as Vai shares, “The album was written and recorded in somewhat of a stream of consciousness in 1991 within perhaps a 2-week period as an answer to my desire to have a particular kind of music to listen to when I was riding my Harley Davison Motorcycle with my friends. One of those friends was John “Gash” Sombrotto, who is the powerful singer on this record. It’s reminiscent of a certain type of rock music I enjoyed as a teenager in the 1970’s. These recordings sat on the shelf for over 30 years and are being released now in 2023.
