Sons Of Apollo have released a video for their uplifting Psychotic Symphony track Alive.

The band features former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, along with Mr Big and The Winery Dogs bassist Billy Sheehan, ex Journey frontman Jeff Scott Soto and former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal.

Their debut album arrived in October last year via InsideOut Music.

In addition, the band have announced further live dates in the UK and in Europe for later this year.

Drummer Portnoy says: “Ever since this lineup assembled to make Psychotic Symphony, the thing I’ve been most excited about is anticipating how insane I know this band is going to be on stage.

“We plan on being on tour all year long, all over the globe. We can’t wait!”

The band will play a special gig at the Roman Amphitheatre, Plovdiv, in September. They’ll perform a ‘By Request’ covers set alongside the Plovdiv State Orchestra.
