Symphony X launch Without You

Symphony X have launched a lyric video for their track Without You.

It’s taken from ninth album Underworld and follows the release of initial track Nevermore last month.

Guitarist Michael Romero says: “Without You is a bit mellower than Nevermore, with a big chorus and a sweeping feel. I don’t know if I’d call it a ballad – but it’s a little bit softer, not so much about riff, but more the acoustic and electric interplay.

“Those two are good single choices because they represent what the record is. It’s heavy, but at the same time there are some of these soaring melodic parts.”

The follow-up to 2011’s Iconoclast is released on July 24 via Nuclear Blast. Symphony X will tour North America in the autumn:
