Progressive rockers STYX have released a new video for their song “Brave New World”, the title track of their 1999 album. The band said in a statement: “In 1999 we released our thirteenth studio album called ‘Brave New World’. Now, 21 years later we’ve created a new video for the title track and we can’t wait for you to see it.”
STYX is currently recording the follow-up to “The Mission”. Released in June 2017, that disc marked STYX‘s first new LP in 14 years. It was recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, co-produced and co-written with Will Evankovich, a longtime collaborator of guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw‘s in the SHAW/BLADES band and who also plays with THE GUESS WHO.
Drummer Todd Sucherman recently told us that the new STYX material “will stand as one of the greatest Styx records of all time”
During the late 1970s and early 1980s, four straight STYX albums sold at least two million copies — “The Grand Illusion” (1977), “Pieces Of Eight” (1978), “Cornerstone” (1979) and “Paradise Theatre” (1981). The band eventually replaced original singer/keyboardist/songwriter Dennis DeYoung in 1999 with Gowan.
