Sons Of Apollo (opens in new tab) have released a video for their new single Fall To Ascend.
It’s the latest material taken from Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Billy Sheehan and Jeff Scott Soto’s upcoming second studio album MMXX which will arrive on January 17 through InsideOut Music.
The band released Goodbye Divinity last month.
Drummer Portnoy says: “Stylistically, we have followed the same path as the debut, but we feel that it has come out stronger, simply because we know one another better.
“Psychotic Symphony (opens in new tab) 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.”
Keyboardist Sherinian adds: “We did 83 shows on the last tour and it was so worthwhile, because we came out of it with a stronger bond, and that is certainly reflected in what we wrote.”
Following the release of MMXX, Sons Of Apollo will head out on the road on a European tour throughout March (opens in new tab).
