Sons of Apollo release ‘Alive’ video, add more U.S. tour dates

Sons of Apollo—former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force)—have released the Vicente Cordero-directed video today for “Alive” from their debut album, Psychotic Symphony.

In touring news, the band launched its first-ever world tour last week in Tampa, Florida, as part of the “Cruise to the Edge” and recently added a new leg of U.S. dates starting April 19 in Montreal, Quebec, at the Corona Theatre. For more information about tickets and on sale dates, fans should visit SonsOfApollo.com.

“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,” Portnoy said. “Well, the wait is almost over! Here are the first U.S. dates that will get to witness this ‘five-headed musical spectacle’ live on stage in February. We plan on being on tour all year long, all over the globe, with plenty of dates now being announced for summer festivals throughout Europe, but these are the very first shows that will get to witness this amazing lineup in person for the first time. We can’t wait!”

Released last October via InsideOutMusic/Sony, “Psychotic Symphony” is available as a 2CD mediabook (featuring a second disc of instrumental mixes and extended booklet with an exclusive studio diary), gatefold 2LP vinyl + CD (which comes with an etching on side D and the entire album on the CD), standard jewelcase CD and digital download. It was produced by the dynamic production duo of Portnoy and Sherinian, also affectionately known as “The Del Fuvio Brothers,” which is the nickname given to them over 20 years ago during their time together in Dream Theater
