Mike Portnoy, formerly of Dream Theater and more recently a member of such bands as The Winery Dogs, Metal Allegiance and The Neal Morse Band among others, has announced via a post on Facebook that Sons Of Apollo, the progressive metal supergroup featuring Portnoy, Billy Sheehan of Mr. Big, former Dream Theater keyboardist Derek Sherinian, vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (Trans Siberian Orchestra/ex Journey) and ex Guns N Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, has been working on a new album. The post reads as follows:
“What an intense writing session we’ve had for Sons Of Apollo 2 over the last week!! It was a whirlwind of creativity and we managed to pull it all together and knock it out of the park (IMHO)…and wasting no time, I’m flying to LA today to begin recording my drum tracks!
We will then spend the rest of the year crafting the album and are shooting to have it out at the end of the year or beginning of 2020…”But worry not, there’s the Live Plovdiv Release coming early this summer to tide you over until then!”
