ABOUT STYX AND “CRASH OF THE CROWN”
A new era of hope, survival, and prosperity comes calling with the release of “Crash of the Crown,” STYX’s “masterpiece” latest studio album, written pre-pandemic and recorded during the trying times of the pandemic. The legendary and multi-Platinum rockers–James “JY” Young (lead vocals, guitars), Tommy Shaw (lead vocals, guitars), Chuck Panozzo (bass, vocals), Todd Sucherman (drums, percussion), Lawrence Gowan (lead vocals, keyboards), Ricky Phillips (bass, guitar, vocals) and “Crash of the Crown” producer and co-writer Will Evankovich (guitars)–released their 17th album June 18, 2021, on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe, which is available as clear vinyl, black vinyl, and CD on digital platforms and at Styxworld.com.
STYX’s holy mission for cutting “Crash of the Crown” was crystal-clear to its co-creator from the get-go. “Absolutely no obstacles were going to get in the way of how we approached creating this album,” singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw concludes about the herculean recording efforts of his fellow COTC makers. “Everything came out exactly the way we wanted to hear it.”
Shortly before “Crash of the Crown” came out, STYX released new music on “The Same Stardust” EP as part of Record Store Day (June 12, 2021). Available on blue 180-gram 12-inch vinyl only, featuring two brand-new songs on side one (“The Same Stardust” and “Age of Entropia”), as well as five live performances on side two of some of STYX’s classic hits previously heard during their “STYX Fix” live streams that have been keeping fans company during the pandemic on their official YouTube page, including “Mr. Roboto,” “Man In The Wilderness,” “Miss America,” “Radio Silence” and “Renegade.” On Sept. 17, 2021, “The Same Stardust” was made available worldwide on all digital platforms.
