Styx has released a second track, "Radio Silence," from its upcoming album The Mission.
The set, due out June 16, is the Styx's first new studio set in 14 years and is a concept album about a mission to Mars. "Radio Silence" follows the album's first single "Gone Gone Gone," and the group's Tommy Shaw tells us the idea was to make an old school-sounding Styx album that would be familiar to fans of the group's classic material:
"As soon as we got to thinking about a Styx album, what's our favorite era of Styx? To me it's 'Grand Illusion,' 'Pieces of Eight.' That was just the prime; Everybody was in the prime...The idea was, 'Let's make this record and make it as analog as possible. Let's go with a small-room drums, let's do four-string bass, Let's make...sure it sounds like Styx, the Styx that everybody grew up with. So that became the margins for it."
