Former STYX singer Dennis DeYoung will release his final studio album, “26 East, Vol 2”, on June 11 via Frontiers Music Srl.
The official lyric video for the latest single and video from the album, “The Last Guitar Hero”, featuring a guest appearance by RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello, is available below.
As with the preceding volume, “26 East, Vol 2” once again hints strongly at DeYoung‘s rock roots with STYX. The production and musicianship are epic, and those timeless vocal arrangements get delivered in spades. A fitting goodbye and a final signature on an outstanding body of work which will stand the test of time.
“Vol 2” picks up where “Vol 1” left off, with DeYoung mining similar musical territory. With direct links to the classic STYX sound, as only he can provide, along with some straight-ahead rock, the breadth of the album is illustrated on tracks like “The Last Guitar Hero”, to two signature DeYoung ballads, “Your Saving Grace” and “Made For Each Other” to the piece de resistance, the first single, the “Isle Of Misanthrope”, an eight-minute masterpiece with a surprise finish.
“My musical goals for this album are the same as they have always been and that’s to write the best songs possible and make great-sounding records out of them,” says DeYoung. “By now, STYX fans know pretty much what they can expect and I hope they will be pleased. I am.
