Portnoy commented:

“I can’t believe it’s finally here!!! The SONS OF APOLLO debut album is finally out today! This album has a little bit of something for everybody… classic rock, metal, prog…it’s a musical feast for the ears!

“To prime everybody for the release, we’re excited to debut the video for ‘Lost In Oblivion’. This song is full-on energy, excitement and shred! From that crazy double-bass drum pattern that took me forever to perfect to the insane bass and guitar unisons throughout the song, to Jeff’s always-hooky chorus… this song is another great example of what this band is about.”

Sons Of Apollo (Ex-Guns N’ Roses, Ex-Dream Theater, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Signs Of The Time”

Sons Of Apollo, the band featuring vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, etc.), guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Art Of Anarchy, ex-Guns N’ Roses), bassist Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, The Winery Dogs), keyboardist Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater, etc.), and drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater, The Winery Dogs), have premiered a new song titled “Signs Of The Time.” This song is from the band’s debut album “Psychotic Symphony,” which will be released on October 20.

Portnoy commented:

“It starts with this heavy, brutal Bumbleriff (initially coined ‘Korntera’), then goes into a cool verse with a two-part vocal melody that I wrote sung by Jeff and myself, which eventually opens up to a HUGE vocal hook in the chorus that Jeff wrote (sung in three-part harmony by Jeff, myself and Bumblefoot).

The middle section riffs are a few things that Derek brought in and show why he is the most BADASS keyboard player in the biz (playing the keys like a guitar player on fire!) and then we have the long extended breakdown and guitar solo which shows why Bumblefoot is one of today’s greatest GUITAR HEROES! This album is going to get him the recognition he truly deserves and this particular guitar solo is one of the tastiest, most insane solos I’ve EVER heard.

So all in all, this song has a little bit of everything that makes Sons Of Apollo so special…great heavy riffs, amazing solos with individual instrumental virtuosity and a big, catchy chorus with more hooks than a tackle box!!

I figured this would be a great ‘first taste’ to introduce the world to this amazing new supergroup…and there’s a whole lot more of different musical styles and twist & turns still to come all throughout the album.”

Portnoy commented:

“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.”
