Symphony X Checks In With Band Activity Update

The official Symphony X MySpace page has been updated with the following statement about the band's activity:

"My apologies for the uber-delay in getting an update posted; we've had to coordinate MJR and me, band management, and multiple people at both the US label office AND the Euro label office spanning quite a few time zones in all. Hopefully it'll go more smoothly from here on out as we all adjust to working together, but for now, here's your very belated update!

"Just spoke with MJR and here's the latest scoop! Mike said that the drums and most of the rhythm guitars are all recorded. At the moment, they are fine tuning the lyrics and melodies, during which time Russ will also be recording his vocals. Personally, I get more excited about this CD the more Mike tells me about it; I am quite secure in saying that it will be well worth the wait.

"While the band is busy working on the cd, we'd like to keep you busy as well; the band needs your help, in two areas. Firstly: the existing FAQ on the band's website was put together when 'The Odyssey' came out; obviously that was quite a while ago and lots has changed since then, including some significant gear/endorsement changes as well as a label change. So that's where you come in: help us put together a new FAQ for the new website. What do you want to ask the band? PLEASE do not send in questions like 'when are you going to play [insert location]?' or 'when will you make a dvd?'; best to stick to general information questions if you want the band to answer them. Send in your questions to symxfaq@gmail.com with "FAQ" in the subject line, and they'll be sent to the band; who knows, your question may show up in the FAQ on the band's new site! For those who have been wondering, we're anticipating that the new site will launch around the same time as the new CD.

"Secondly: what band(s) would you like to see tour with/open for Symphony X? Who do you think would match best with SymX, or bring in a good crowd? Send your suggestions to symxfaq@gmail.com and perhaps you'll get to see the band you choose on SymX's next tour. That's it for now; hopefully now that we've gotten the update process all ironed out, our news updates will be a lot more regular again. Thanks for your patience!"

Holy sh**, these guys are awesome. How about a tour with Symphony X, Dream Theater and Mastodon? I would have to change my underwear if that was announced.

Excellent band 'love their spyro-heavy Spacey vibes: their have an complex groovin beat and definately look forward to SYMPHONY X new album. When Touring they need a band just as Spacey & Heavy complex like themselves. All the best 2010 and beyond!
