Sons of Apollo debuted the lead single from its new album this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Goodbye, Divinity‘ Friday. the song is featured in the band’s upcoming sophomore album MMXX, which is due out Jan. 17, 2020 through InsideOut Music.
Directed by Vicente Cordero, the video features the band — Jeff Scott Soto (vocals), Mike Portnoy (drums), Derek Sherinian (keyboards) Billy Sheehan (bass) and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (guitar) — performing their new single in a dimly lit studio setting. The song’s musical arrangement will appeal greatly to fans of Dream Theater’s late 90s sound, which featured Sherinian and Portnoy as members of the band at the time. The song’s lyrical content comes across as being 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.
