STYX ANNOUNCES TWO NEW ALBUM RELEASES FOR JUNE AND JULY: ‘THE MISSION’ REISSUE IN 5.1 SURROUND SOUND AND INCLUDING EXCLUSIVE VIDEO CONTENT DUE OUT JULY 27 ON ALPHA DOG 2T/UMe; TOMMY SHAW AND THE CONTEMPORARY YOUTH ORCHESTRA ‘SING FOR THE DAY!’ DUE OUT JUNE 29 VIA EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT ON BLU-RAY, CD, AND DIGITAL FORMATS - PRNewsFoto/UMe  

Music News by UMe : STYX is giving their loyal fans a double whammy of new releases in June and July.

First up is the highly anticipated reissue of their critically acclaimed first new studio album in 14 years, THE MISSION, on July 27 via Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. The two-disc package will include a CD of the original album, as well as a Blu-ray of THE MISSION mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound by singer/guitarist TOMMY SHAW and producer Will Evankovich accompanied by stunning visualizations for each of the album's 14 songs based on the album artwork. Other extras on the Blu-ray include: "The Making of The Mission Documentary" of exclusive interviews of SHAW and Evankovich, four music videos—"Gone Gone Gone" (official video), "Gone Gone Gone" (video created by NASA), "Radio Silence" (lyric video) and "Radio Silence" (live video from Syracuse, NY)—and three hi-res audio playback modes. Pre-orders are available now here.

"THE MISSION, a concept album of all new music, is a trip," declares TOMMY SHAW. "Now it's coming to you in 5.1 Surround and you're cordially invited to strap yourselves in and take that trip with us, then take it again!"

THE MISSION was released June 16, 2017 and debuted on various Billboard charts, including: #6 Top Rock Albums, #11 Physical Albums, #11 Vinyl Albums, #13 Current Albums, #14 Top Albums, #16 Retail, #17 Mass Merch/Non-Traditional, #29 Digital Albums, and #45 Top 200 Albums (includes catalog and streaming).

"The planets truly aligned for THE MISSION, and I couldn't be prouder," said vocalist/guitarist TOMMY SHAW upon its release, who co-wrote the album's storyline with longtime collaborator Will Evankovich (Shaw/Blades, The Guess Who). "It's our boldest, most emblematic album since PIECES OF EIGHT." As founding guitarist JAMES "JY" YOUNG continued, "In the 40th anniversary year of our release of our biggest selling album of all time, GRAND ILLUSION, it just seemed truly appropriate to save our new studio album until this year. Needless to say, I'm very excited."
Next, SING FOR THE DAY!, TOMMY SHAW's solo 2016 concert performance with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra will be released on Blu-ray, CD, and Digital Audio / Video on June 29 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. Pre-orders are now available on Eagle Rock's website.

Filmed before an enthusiastic audience at the intimate Waetjen Auditorium in Cleveland, SING FOR THE DAY! presented unique versions of such classics as "Blue Collar Man," "Girls With Guns," and "Too Much Time On My Hands." Under the direction of principal conductor / founder Liza Grossman, with accompaniment by guitarist/musical director Will Evankovich, the Cleveland-based Contemporary Youth Orchestra blended seamlessly with Shaw to create a one-of-a-kind experience. The songs of STYX / TOMMY SHAW / Damn Yankees are infused with the energy of the finest high-school-aged musicians in Ohio, as evidenced by such performances as the epic duel between SHAW's guitar licks and a prodigious young violinist / CYO alum Lavinia Pavlish on "Renegade."

Additionally, the set includes a special version of the STYX classic "Crystal Ball" featuring the debut of a lost verse that was never recorded.

As TOMMY SHAW says, "SING FOR THE DAY!, a retrospective look at some of my favorite songs I've written and co-written, performed with Contemporary Youth Orchestra, now remixed in glorious 5.1, takes them all to a higher place I'd never imagined."

This show also marked the 10-year anniversary of STYX's original 2006 performance with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra -- One With Everything (previously released via Eagle Rock Entertainment on multiple formats).

It was truly a night to remember, as SHAW notes: "It was so much bigger and more everlasting than any of us imagined it would be."

In addition to the full 13-song set, the SING FOR THE DAY! Blu-ray includes 96K stereo audio of four songs with TOMMY SHAW and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra not included in the program -- "Down That Highway," "The Great Divide," "I'll Be Coming Home," and "The Night Goes On" -- soundtracking a slideshow of photos from the show, rehearsals, and behind-the-scenes.
