Sons Of Apollo aiming to release new studio album later in 2019
Sons Of Apollo / Black Country Communion and ex-Dream Theater keyboardist Derek Sherinian was interviewed by Greece’s Rock Pages back in September 2018.
Sherinian was asked when we can expect a follow up to Sons of Apollo‘s debut album Psychotic Symphony, which was released in October 2017 to which he stated: “We’re going in the studio early next year (this interview was shot in September 2018) to put a record sometime in 2019. But, I don’t know what the release date will be. It will be continuation of the way I write. If this is how I did it in 2017, that’s going to be the same every year. It’s just a matter of how I feel at the time and what comes out. There is no strategy, I just go and do it.”
In terms of the status of Black Country Communion, Sherinian advised (with slight edits): “The status is that everyone is doing other things. Joe [Bonamassa] is doing his solo career, Glenn [Hughes] is out touring, Jason [Bonham] has his Led Zeppelin experience that he is doing… And I am doing Sons Of Apollo. Maybe next year if things work out we will do a fifth record. I love playing with that band. Those guys are amazing. Joe, Glenn and Jason are top notch! Same way as Sons Of Apollo is top notch, but it’s a different vibe. It’s a different hit. Where Black Country Communion is old school rock, Sons Of Apollo has a metal and progressive element that BCC doesn’t have. It’s cool, I get the best of both worlds.”
