Angel Vivaldi has announced the release date of his long-awaited upcoming EP, Away With Words: Part 2, and has previewed the forthcoming effort with Eight – a four-minute fretboard masterclass that sees the prog metal maestro take a radical latin turn.

Unlike the Charvel signature artist’s first Away With Words installment from 2014, which was much heavier by nature, Eight sees Vivaldi hark back to his early inspirations, drawing on the melodic feel of legendary musicians such as Carlos Santana and Chick Corea.
