DEBUTS AT #1 ON BILLBOARD’S “CURRENT HARD MUSIC ALBUMS” CHART

For the second album in a row, fans of SONS OF APOLLO--former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force)—showed up in full force to get their hands on the band’s second critically acclaimed album, MMXX, its first week out. That support propelled the album straight to the top of Billboard’s “Current Hard Music Albums” chart, where it debuts at #1.

Elsewhere on the Billboard charts:

#3 Top New Artist Albums

#3 Current Rock Albums 

#7 Internet Albums

MMXX is the follow-up to the band’s debut album, PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY, acknowledged as one of the finest releases in '17. Praised by Loudwire as an “...impressive debut disc,” it was released October 20, 2017 via InsideOutMusic/Sony and debuted on Billboard’s “Heatseeker” chart at #1, as well as at #10 on the “Rock Chart,” and #33 on the “Top Current Albums” chart.

Released January 17 via InsideOutMusic / Sony, MMXX is available as a standard CD package, Limited Edition 2 CD package (which includes instrumental mixes and a cappella excerpts), 2 LP + CD package, and on all digital formats. Three videos have already been released from the new album: “Goodbye Divinity” (which has achieved over 3.7 million plays so far), “Fall To Ascend” and “Desolate July.”

In touring news, the band’s headlining “MMXX World Tour” kicked off January 23 in Sacramento, CA, USA and will take them around the world throughout the new year.
