Symphony X Frontman On KNAC "The Vault" Today

Russell Allen, the vocalist for New Jersey progressive power metallers Symphony X, will be the featured guest on KNAC.COM's underground classic metal program "The Vault" (hosted by DJ Will) today (Saturday, July 29) at around noon PST. You can listen to the interview at www.knac.com.

Symphony X's video for the song "Serpent's Kiss" has been posted on MySpace. The track comes off the New Jersey progressive metallers' new CD, which sold around 6,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Paradise Lost" was released on June 26 via Inside Out Music. The CD was mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Soilwork, Amon Amarth) at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden.

Symphony X Management Clears Up DVD Misinformation

SYMPHONY X webmaster Jax has posted this message on the band's MySpace page:

"First, a statement from the band's management regarding the bonus DVD:

'World Management would like to clear up any misinformation about the attached 'free Bonus DVD' that is shrink wrapped to the new SYMPHONY X CD 'Paradise Lost'. The Free Fan Bonus DVD attached is and was always intended to be an extra fan bonus for a small limited run of digis. It was shrink wrapped onto the actual disc and is a bonus home video style collection of a few shows from the band's archives. Please enjoy these clips for their intent.

A lot of intense effort has gone into the writing, recording and packaging of this new CD and we are all very happy with the result. It is after all, about the new music. For all the DVD fans, the band will make a professional DVD sometime in the future and rest assured we will spend lots of creative energy when the time comes for that. In the meantime enjoy Paradise Lost and we shall see you all hopefully out on tour in 2007/2008. Thanks for your support.'

Basically this DVD was never meant to be any big professionally done thing; it was intended to be a free extra goodie comprised of home video type material meant for a limited run through a small number of vendors (if it WERE meant to be something big, they'd have done far more than just stuff it in with the CD). The band is not pleased that it appeared to be portrayed as more than it really was, and that they have fans who feel that they were ripped off as a result; they sincerely hope that you all know that that was never their intent.

Next, the current list of European tour dates for the SYMPHONY X/DREAM THEATER tour (more dates yet to be announced):

Sept. 26 - Helsinki, Finland - Ice Hall
Sept. 28 - Stockholm, Sweden - Hovet
Sept. 29 - Oslo, Norway - Spectrum
Oct. 1 - Hannover, Germany - Capitol
Oct. 2 - Warsaw, Poland - Torwar
Oct. 4 - Antwerp, Belgium - Lotto Arena
Oct. 5 - Paris, France - Zenith
Oct. 11 - Glasgow, Scotland - Academy
Oct. 12 - Manchester, England - Apollo
Oct. 13 - London, England - Wembley Arena
Oct. 21 - Munich, Germany - Tonhalle
Oct. 22 - Erlangen (Nurnberg), Germany - Stadthalle
Oct. 23 - Stuttgart, Germany - Masse Congresscentrum B
Oct. 29 - October Bologna, Italy - Land Rover Arena
Oct. 30 - Padova, Italy - Palasport
Oct. 31 - Winterthur, Switzerland - Eulachhalle
Nov. 9 - 2007 Newport, Wales - Newport Centre
Nov. 10 - Wolverhampton, England - Civic Hall
Nov. 11 - Blackburn, England - King George's Hall

And lastly, sales figures. I'm thrilled to share that 'Paradise Lost' has held in the top 40 on Amazon all week (they went from #72 on Monday, to a high of #30 on release day, and have since remained in the mid #30s and holding strong), and are #3 on CD Universe. Thanks to all of you for your support in buying the CD! I can't wait to see what the SoundScan stats are for the week..keep spreading the word, we have all week to rack up sales for this week's SoundScan numbers; hopefully we'll see our guys make their first appearance on the Billboard Top 100!"
