SONS OF APOLLO: kündigen neues Album und eine Europa Tour für Anfang 2020 an!
SONS OF APOLLO feat. Drummer Mike Portnoy, Keyboarder Derek Sherinian (ex-DREAM THEATER), Gitarrist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (ex-GUNS N’ ROSES), Bassist Billy Sheehan (THE WINERY DOGS, MR. BIG, DAVID LEE ROTH) und Sänger Jeff Scott Soto (ex-JOURNEY, ex-YNGWIE MALMSTEEN'S RISING FORCE) werden ihr neues und zweites Album mit dem Titel "MMXX" am 17. Januar via Inside out Music veröffentlichen.
"Stylistically, we have followed the same path as the debut" sagte Drummer Mike Portnoy. "But we feel that it has come out stronger, simply because we know one another better.
"Psychotic Symphony was the first time the five of us had worked together, so there was bound to be an air of experimentation happening. Now, we can draw on having the experience not only of recording that album, but also of touring together a lot. And now there is clearly a lot more obvious chemistry going on.”
"It took about three weeks to get all the music written. That was a very smooth process. The last time, it certainly must have felt a little weird for Bumblefoot to be writing with Derek and me, because we were strangers to him. Now, we know one another better and that helped things push along."
"Because we all have our home studios, it meant everyone could record there as and when they had opportunity," adds Sherinian. "We all had the luxury of being able to take our time to get all the parts done, which was a huge help in the way the album's come out. I suppose in all, it took about eight months to record everything."
