SYMPHONY X Is Recording A New Record Right This Very Second
Symphony X is kind of like Tool in that they take forever to write a record, yet unlike Tool they've released more than four records in over twenty years. Though in the past twelve years we've only gotten three Symphony X records, which is disappointing considering how awesome they are!
Now, out of the blue, the band announced they're hitting the studio right this second. Seriously. Bassist Michael LePond told United Rock Nations in an interview (below) they're doing up a new record for an early 2015 release!
"We're gonna start the drums on Tuesday [September 9], and with all the recording and then the promotion, we hope to have a new album out for the spring. The songs are ready to go. We have ten songs. We may record nine or ten; we'll see how it goes."
LePond said the album isn't as heavy as 2011's Iconoclast and seems more like a combination of 2002's The Odyssey and 2007's Paradise Lost, which sounds sick to the nth degree. So we'll see, but it certainly sounds like we'll get a single before the end of the year! Fingers crossed!
