Symphony X News Update

North America's progressive metal gods SYMPHONY X have scheduled the following dates for 2011:

Apr. 22 - Best Buy Theater (formerly Nokia Theater) — New York, NY
May 10 - Wiltern Theater - Los Angeles, CA

VIP tickets will be available for both shows and will include early entry, a meet-and-greet, and a free t-shirt. Tickets are available exclusively at and go on sale through regular ticketing outlets on October 23.

SYMPHONY X recently entered the studio to begin recording its next studio album, tentatively due in early 2011 via the band's new record label, Nuclear Blast Records.

SYMPHONY X guitarist Michael Romeo previously stated about the group's new material, "We have over an hour of really good stuff that we really dig; there's more than enough stuff there that we can choose the best songs to go on the CD... but all of the songs are really strong. One is shaping up to be 10 minutes plus.

"I think everyone will like it," Romeo concluded. "It has a little bit of everything."

On November 4, 2008, InsideOut Music released a special 5.1 edition of SYMPHONY X's critically acclaimed album "Paradise Lost". The double-disc package includes a DVD 5.1 mix by Jens Bogren of the entire album as well as two enhanced HD videos for "Set the World on Fire" and "Serpent's Kiss".
