SOTO: 'HyperMania' Music Video

SOTO, the modern heavy metal/hard rock group featuring vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, TALISMAN, JOURNEY, SONS OF APOLLO, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), will release its third studio album, "Origami", on May 24.

The official music video for the disc's opening track, "HyperMania", can be seen below.

Jeff comments: "'HyperMania' is the first music video from 'Origami'. There is a double entendre to the lyrics that actually became a triple one for the video itself. It will be fun to see how it is interpreted by viewers. Our Brazilian friend and director Thiago Kiss truly delivered the balance of frightening, erotic and artsy into this video. We are extremely proud to present to you 'HyperMania'."

"Origami" will be released as a limited-digipak CD with a set of thrree stickers and a bonus track, 180-gram vinyl LP including the entire album on CD, and as digital download. The album comes packaged with classy artwork by Gustavo Sazes (MACHINE HEAD, AMARANTHE, ARCH ENEMY).

01. HyperMania
02. Origami
03. BeLie
04. World Gone Colder
05. Detonate
06. Torn
07. Dance With The Devil

SOTO started in 2015 derived from the ideal of Jeff Scott Soto wanting to return to his heavier roots. So far they released two albums, "Inside The Vertigo" (2015) and "DIVAK" (2016), taking a short break while Jeff joined the supergroup SONS OF APOLLO, alongside Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Billy Sheehan and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.

Now SOTO is returning under the same umbrella as SONS OF APOLLO, signing with InsideOut Music. "Origami" contains material that continues to expand and move the band towards new heights whilst following up with its brand of power rock.

SOTO will hit South America for live dates in May and intends to be touring worldwide throughout 2019 following the release of the new album.

SOTO is:

Jeff Scott Soto - Vocals
