Dream Theater alumni Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian have confirmed recent rumors hinting at their working together in a new “supergroup” project. That band, Sons Of Apollo, finds the pair joined by Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns ‘N Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big) and Jeff Scott Soto (Journey, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force). Their debut album, “Psychotic Symphony”, will be released October 20th on InsideOut Music. An album teaser can be seen below.
“Psychotic Symphony” was produced by the dynamic production duo of Portnoy and Sherinian, also affectionately known as “The Del Fuvio Brothers,” which is the nickname given to them over 20 years ago during their time together in Dream Theater.
Sons Of Apollo will hit the road in 2018 for their first worldwide tour. We will bring you further information on the band as it becomes available.
