As Portnoy exclaims, “I can’t believe it’s finally here!!! The SONS OF APOLLO debut album is finally OUT TODAY! This album has a little bit of something for everybody…Classic Rock, Metal, Prog…it’s a musical feast for the ears! To prime everybody for the release, we’re excited to debut the video for ‘Lost In Oblivion.’ This song is full-on energy, excitement and shred! From that crazy double bass drum pattern that took me forever to perfect, to the insane bass and guitar unisons throughout the song, to Jeff’s always-hooky chorus…this song is another great example of what this band is about.”

Stay tuned for news about SONS OF APOLLO first worldwide tour in 2018.

Here’s more on Roadcase Royale

Nancy Wilson, one of the founding members of the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group Heart, has teamed up with former Prince’s New Power Generation band member and R&B singer Liv Warfield to form the soulful, rock super group, Roadcase Royale.  The band will release their debut album, First Things First, this Friday, September 22, 2017.  The album was produced by fellow Roadcase Royale band member Dan Rothchild (Heart) along with the band.

Roadcase Royale has been busy doing press interviews and radio visits including NPR Weekend Edition, who recently interviewed Wilson, Billboard, who is premiering “The Dragon,” a song written for the late Alice In Chains frontman, Layne Staley before his death. Other press such as Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Sirius XM, and Associated Press. BackStory Events recently live streamed a Q&A with Wilson & Warfield via Guitar World – watch it HERE.  Earlier this year, Rolling Stone premiered the live performance video of their debut single “Get Loud” saying, “…the band builds a funky, nimble groove, led by Warfield’s soulful belting and the acoustic/electric guitar attack of Wilson and Prince protégé Ryan Waters.”  The video was shot by celebrated photographer, Neal Preston. Watch it HERE.  “Get Loud” with its laid-back groove, provides a solid acoustic and electric foundation for Warfield’s vocals – all about getting loud and standing up for women’s equality. “Get Loud” blends this important message with the group’s R&B and rock influences, resulting in a uniquely powerful track.

Roadcase Royale’s version of the Heart song “These Dreams” is featured in the new Aaron Sorkin film, Molly’s Game, starring Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain, and Kevin Costner. The film will make its official U.S. release nationwide on November 22, 2017.

“Roadcase Royale is a band I’ve always wanted to be in,” says Nancy Wilson. “We all write and create songs as a unit. It’s an inspired democracy. Liv and Ryan both bring a whole new level of magic to our new sound. I’m amazed after devoting my life to rock music how it now feels so brand new. That’s why our first album is called First Things First.”

The name of the band, Roadcase Royale came to the group during a backstage meeting they had last year.  Wilson said, “When I came up with the name Roadcase Royale it was an interesting symbol to me since the big heavy-duty road cases that our amps drums and guitars travel in are much like the musicians they accompany on the road. Strong and regal looking yet all scuffed up and dented, covered in funny stickers that tell the story of a crazy traveling circus.”

In addition to Wilson (guitar) and Warfield (vocals), Roadcase Royale features Ryan Waters (lead guitarist) along with Heart members Chris Joyner (keys), Dan Rothchild (bass), and Ben Smith (drums).
