Sons Of Apollo MMXX World Tour, New Album

SONS OF APOLLO are blasting into the new decade with a headlining “MMXX World Tour” set to launch January 23rd in Sacramento, CA, USA and orbiting them around the world throughout the new year (dates below). 
 
Sons Of Apollo is:
Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian (former Dream Theater members),
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).
 
The band will be supporting their second studio album, MMXX, aptly titled and pronounced: 20/20. The album includes eight tracks with variations in length totaling 60 minutes. “The final song is ‘New World Today,’ which is 16 minutes long,” says Portnoy. “This one has elements similar to ‘Opus Maximus’ and ‘Labyrinth’ on the previous album. It has some insane, brilliant instrumental moments, which I am sure the fans will love.” The album will be out later this week, January 17th.
 
Track listing for MMXX:
1. Goodbye Divinity (7:16)
2. Wither To Black (4:48)
3. Asphyxiation (5:09)
4. Desolate July (6:11)
5. King Of Delusion (8:49)
6. Fall To Ascend (5:07)
7. Resurrection Day (5:51)
8. New World Today (16:38)
 
 
Sons Of Apollo have also recently released the video for the album’s third single, “Desolate July,” a tribute to musician David Z who tragically passed away in 2017. Listen below:
 

“From the few seconds of hearing this song, it guided me to write the lyrics about our dear friend and colleague, David Z. David was one of the greatest, funniest and kindest humans I have ever known, he had friendships with most all of us in SOA, but Mike and I were certainly the closest. I thought it fitting to include this tribute to him from us in this haunting, incredible body of music.” – Jeff Scott Soto
 
“This video is a great tribute to our dear friend David Z. Jeff and I were particularly close with him and I was honored that Jeff invited me to sing the harmonies with him on the Choruses for us to both share our love for our friend that was tragically taken from us way too soon.” – Mike Portnoy
