The Mission

Styx has a new album out. Titled The Mission, they’ve even released a music video for their first single, “Gone, Gone, Gone.” 

Available June 16, it’s their first album of original songs since 2003’s Cyclorama. The concept album takes place in 2033, detailing a futuristic manned mission to mars on a nuclear-powered spaceship. 

“The planets truly aligned for The Mission, and I couldn’t be prouder,” guitarist Tommy Shaw said in a press release.

“It’s our boldest, most emblematic album since Pieces of Eight.” Keyboardist Lawrence Gowan added. “The album feels simultaneously comfortable and new. It’s both entertaining and charming, and a natural progression of our sound.”
