Sons Of Apollo Announce ‘Live With The Plovdiv Psychotic Symphony’ Release

Jason Bullinger For Alternative Revolt

SONS OF APOLLO featuring former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force)—are pleased to announce the release of ‘Live With The Plovdiv Psychotic Symphony’ on August 30.

“Live With The Plovdiv Psychotic Symphony” documents the band’s remarkable one-off performance at the Ancient Roman Theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria alongside a full orchestra and choir, playing tracks from its debut album, “Psychotic Symphony”, as well as a selection of tracks by legendary bands. It will be available as a limited deluxe 3CD + DVD + Blu-ray artbook, special-edition 3CD + DVD Digipak, standalone Blu-ray and digital album.

Portnoy comments: “I’ve released several dozen live albums through the years with about a dozen different bands, but I have to say that this live release from SONS OF APOLLO may indeed be the most special one of them all!! Everything was aligned that evening: an absolutely beautiful Roman amphitheatre and a perfectly gorgeous summer evening, one set of SONS OF APOLLO material and one set of specially chosen cover songs, and to top it all off being joined by a symphony orchestra and choir…it was a magical evening for everybody in attendance and now we can share it with the rest of the world immortalized in this incredible live package. This package will serve as a nice souvenir to capture the band’s first year on tour and should tide over all of our fans while we complete work on our sophomore studio release that will coming in January 2020.”
