Styx - Gone Gone Gone

The American rock band STYX from Chicago has advanced "The Mission", its first new album in 14 years, with the single and today's tune "Gone Gone Gone," which is the opening track of the concept album.

"The Mission comes" out June 16, and STYX will be touring all summer to promote it, co-billed with REO SPEEDWAGON. The album was recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, co-produced and co-written with Will Evankovich, a longtime collaborator of Tommy Shaw's in the Shaw/Blades band and who also plays with THE GUESS WHO. "The Mission" was under wraps -- not only from fans, but for a time from Shaw's bandmates.

"It's been kind of secretive from the very beginning," Shaw tells Billboard. "Will came up with this song called 'Locomotive,' and then I wrote some parts to it and some more lyric and we demoed it out and suddenly it started feeling like a story of some kind. It didn't take long for it to feel like this should be for Styx." But Shaw decided to keep quiet until he and Evankovich came up with more ideas, which eventually turned into a thematic song cycle about the first manned mission to Mars.
