Ex-Dream Theater & Guns N' Roses Members Form New Supergroup Sons Of Apollo

Sons Of Apollo - a new supergroup featuring singer Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, etc.), guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Art Of Anarchy, ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, The Winery Dogs) on bass, Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater) on keyboards and drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater/Avenged Sevenfold) - today shares a clip for upcoming debut album "Psychotic Symphony."

InsideOut Music will release the album on October 20th, 2017. Check out now the new teaser below. Explains Portnoy:

"This is a real band. This is going to pick up for me and Billy where The Winery Dogs left off, in terms of this being the next logical full-time thing for us. I’m not saying The Winery Dogs have broken up, because we haven’t, we’re just on a break. Sons Of Apollo is absolutely going to be a full-time band and we plan on touring all over the world all throughout 2018 and, honestly, it is the priority for all five of us."

Music sounds good, but I laughed at Portnoy's statement. "This is a real band!" Way to inspire confidence there Mike...

It's interesting that two of the singers who tracked for the
old Steel Dragon flick with Marky mark have released new sh!t within a couple days of eachother....Soto sounds about as good as ever, but damn, mijljenko sounds like hell

Dude used to have the craziest high end, right there with Halford and the Vest in their respective primes....
