New STYX album

That's right after 14 long years we are finally getting a new album from the legends that are STYX. The album is to be released on June the 16th and is titled The Mission, this is the band first recording since Cyclorama in 2003, it was recorded over a two years at Blackbird Studios in Nashville.  Along with the New STYX album the band are also going out on tour, for full dates see below.

The first single from the album is now out, take a look at the video below. I'm sure you will agree this is classic Styx with the usual extremely tight harmonies and great classic rock sound.

On the Styx website the band said -

“The planets truly aligned for THE MISSION, and I couldn’t be prouder,” says vocalist/guitarist Tommy Shaw, who co-wrote the album’s storyline with longtime collaborator Will Evankovich (Shaw/Blades, The Guess Who). “It’s our boldest, most emblematic album since PIECES OF EIGHT.”

As founding guitarist James “JY” Young continues, “In the 40th anniversary year of our release of our biggest selling album of all time, GRAND ILLUSION, it just seemed truly appropriate to save our new studio album until this year. Needless to say, I’m very excited.”
