“The band are excited to see that people are enjoying the record, and can’t wait to get on the road this fall”, commented Michael Romeo. Today, SYMPHONY X presents a new lyric-video for the track ‘Kiss Of Fire’:

Underworld was crafted at Michael Romeo’s tricked out studio, The Dungeon. For the album’s cover art, the band went with their established illustrator Warren Flanagan (Watchmen, The Incredible Hulk, 2012), who similarly tapped into the “secret knowledge” vibe Michael and the band embedded in the record.

Mike LePond on the passing of Chris Squire of Yes

Symphony X bassist Mike LePond reflects on the passing of Chris Squire, bassist of Yes, saying “Chris Squire wasn’t a big influence on me, but he was easily one of the best bassists I have ever heard. When I first heard “Roundabout”, I was blown away by his style. Even their poppier songs, like “Owner of a Lonely Heart”, had amazing bass lines. He was a true giant of the bass world.”

‘Without You’, the second single from Underworld!

Without You

‘Without You’, the second single from our upcoming cd Underworld, was released today!

Guitarist Michael Romeo comments “’Without You’ is a bit mellower than the first single, ‘Nevermore’, with a big chorus and a sweeping feel. I don’t know if I would call the track a ballad, but it’s a little bit softer, not so much about riff, but more the acoustic and electric interplay. Those two are good single choices, if you will, because they represent what the record is: it’s heavy, but at the same time, there are some of these soaring melodic parts.”

Watch the fitting lyric video here:

The video (as well as the video for Nevermore) was created by Tommy Antonini, a videographer and guitarist from Pisa, Italy who currently lives in Livorno. You can see more of Tommy’s videos on his Facebook page.
