SYMPHONY X Addresses Metal Gods Tour & New Recordings

New Jersey's symphonic metal specialists SYMPHONY X have issued a statement regarding their involvement with the upcoming Metal Gods tour. The band was invited to perform the anticipated Spring tour but has declined due to scheduling conflicts with their previously-commited European tour with Stratovarius and their pending recording plans.

Management has announced that the band will be returning to the studio during the summer to completely re-record their debut album, including all instrumentation and vocal work. The self-titled cult favorite, originally released in 1996, featured a different vocalist & bassist, and a looser, rawer production value. A hint of what is to come was made available on the limited edition configuration of SYMPHONY X's latest studio release 'The Odyssey' as the exclusive bonus track "Masquerade". The band is also discussing the possibility of releasing a special collector's box set to close 2003 (details TBA).

Upon completion of the re-recording of 'Symphony X', the band is looking to embark on a full North American tour to take them through Autumn. The tour will kick off with a headline performance at the opening night of this year's prestigious Prog Power IV festival at Earthlink Live in Atlanta, GA on September 5th. They will then return to Europe for another major tour.

More news will be made available as the situation develops.
