Sons of Apollo debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Fall To Ascend‘ Friday. The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album MMXX, which is scheduled for release Jan. 17, 2020 through Inside Out Music.
The video features the band performing its new single, with each member presented collectively through a distinctly psychedelic video effect. The song’s musical arrangement once again features a very familiar sound thanks to the collective work of keyboardist Derek Sherinian and drummer Mike Portnoy, both of whom previously recorded and toured with Dream Theater. Vocalist Jeff Scott Soto’s deep vocal delivery, guitarist Ron Thal and bassist Billy Sheehan add their own special touch to the song to make the composition in whole familiar stylistically speaking, but still original in its own right. The song’s lyrical theme adds to its interest with its thought-provoking content.
The debut of the band’s video for ‘Fall To Ascend’ comes less than a month after the band debuted the video for MMXX‘s lead single, ‘Goodbye Divinity.’ The song’s musical arrangement will appeal just as much as that of ‘Fall To Ascend’ to Dream Theater fans. The song’s lyrical content comes across as a commentary of sorts.
Pre-orders are open now for MMXX. Audiences who pre-order the album now through iTunes and Amazon will receive an instant grat download of ‘Goodbye, Divinity.’
Audiences who pre-save the album online will have the chance to win digital subscriptions to Modern Drummer magazine and Bass Player magazine. They will also have the chance to win a signed Remo drumhead from the band, as well as two tickets to one of the band’s upcoming shows.
Speaking of the band’s shows, the band will launch a tour in support of MMXX on Jan. 23 in Sacramento, CA. The tour is scheduled to run through Feb. 8 in Englewood, NJ.
After taking time off to rest and recharge, the band will launch the second leg of its tour Feb. 28 in Germany. The exact city is still too be announced. The European leg of the tour is scheduled to run through March 25 in Budapest, Hungary. The band’s current tour schedule is noted below.
