Progressive metal supergroup Sons of Apollo have debuted the video for their single ‘Coming Home’.
Letting the music do the talking, the video sees Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Billy Sheehan and Jeff Scott Soto belt out the powerful track at Ocean Studios in Burbank, California.
"’Coming Home’ immediately felt like the Sons of Apollo 'grand entrance' as soon as we wrote the song,” says Mike Portnoy.
“Almost like a fighter entering the ring. I knew this had to be the first video and first time people see us playing together. The video was shot at Ocean Studios in Burbank, CA, where we wrote and recorded the album. So, you're essentially seeing the exact place and environment that Sons of Apollo was born.
"I assume most people's expectations of the band from its line-up is for SOA to be a self-indulgent 'w***-fest' (and granted, there are three 10-minute Prog epics on the album!), but ‘Coming Home’ is an example that we are just as much a rock band cut from the cloth of classic bands like Van Halen as well."
‘Coming Home’ is lifted from Sons of Apollo’s debut album ‘Psychotic Symphony’ which is available to pre-order right here on 2CD Mediabook (featuring a second disc of instrumental mixes), Gatefold 2LP vinyl + CD, Standard Jewelcase CD & digital download.
