During an interview with John “Kats” Katsilometes for his podcast “PodKats!”, Tommy Shaw revelaed that Styx are writing their new album. “We’re pretty well into it. Lawrence will be coming to Nashville, and our producer, Will Evankovich, we’re going to be doing the writing demos for the songs that we have so far and finishing up a few things. Mainly now it’s just a matter of scheduling between times that we’re on the road and times that we need to be home. That’s the hardest thing — just getting us all together in a room.” The interview is very interesting with Tommy Shaw talking about the band’s early days, how he auditioned and got the gig, the state of music today, the previous studio album and more.
