STYX continue to provide the kick ass rock n roll for the soundtrack of my life. They have just released their 16th Studio album, THE MISSION and it ROCKS! The album is the first studio album in 14 years and is released on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. It is an album that will have longtime STYX fans in awe and is garnering high praise from new fans. It’s bridging the generation gap by delivering an engaging, full bodied rock/progressive rock album that will please fans of all ages.

Check out the first single, Gone, Gone, Gone:


THE MISSION–which was recorded over a two-year period at Blackbird Studios, The Shop, and 6 Studio Amontillado in Nashville–displays the best aspects of the ongoing in-harmony musical intersection of the six-man STYX team: the aforementioned guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw, co-founding guitarist/vocalist James “JY” Young, keyboardist/vocalist Lawrence Gowan, original bassist Chuck Panozzo, drummer/percussionist Todd Sucherman, and bassist Ricky Phillips.


The new music was created to reflect the viewpoint of the six-person crew enlisted for the maiden voyage of Khedive, the first entry in a new fleet of nuclear-powered interplanetary spacecraft underwritten by the Global Space Exploration Program (or GSEP, for short). The Khedive team consists of The Pilot, a fully hands-on, seat-of-the-pants born leader; a First Officer who serves as the team’s big-brother figure; an Engineer who is skeptical of every phase of the mission but remains confident in his own abilities to make the best of any technical situation; and a Top-Shelf Trio of science, astrophysics, and survivalist experts.
