SYMPHONY X's webmaster has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"Just spoke to Michael James Romeo [SYMPHONY X guitarist] and got caught up on things. He reports that they will start recording in the beginning of July; they're currently finishing up one song and putting final touches on a couple of others. Mike said that since writing has taken this long, they've chosen to finetune the songs before entering the studio; they've put a lot of time into pre-production on this one."
SYMPHONY X's follow-up to 2002's "The Odyssey" is tentatively due this fall. The band expect to return to the road shortly after the release of the new CD.
SYMPHONY X bassist Michael LePond recently underwent surgery after being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease (an inflammatory bowel disorder) and is expected to fully recover.
SYMPHONY X were one of the second-stage bands at last summer's Gigantour, a six-week festival trek co-headlined by MEGADETH and DREAM THEATER. "Rarities and Demos", the first fan club CD from the SYMPHONY X fan club, Church of the Machine, was shipped out in July 2005 to fan club members. The CD includes demo material, rare unreleased material, and guitarist Michael James Romeo's interpretation of the "Star Wars" theme, done with over 15 guitar tracks.
