k-os 07
PR reports: Virgin Records artist k-os has completed his third album, ATLANTIS - Hymns for Disco, for early 2007 release in the U.S. Already a platinum-plus artist in his native Canada, k-os arrives at U.S. alternative and pop radio as a confirmed rule-breaker. With this deeply expressive new album, k-os claims a place among such genre-blending, out-of-the-box visionaries as the Beastie Boys, Beck, Gnarls Barkley, Lupe Fiasco and OutKast.

Track for track, ATLANTIS - Hymns for Disco emerges as a highly personal work with a breadth of style that is, at once, imposing proof of an uncontainable talent, a salute to the adventuresome taste of his followers, and an in-your-face creative challenge thrown down to songwriters, producers, singers and rappers everywhere.

The Grand Delusion
PR reports: Nashville-based music journalist Sterling Whitaker has announced the upcoming release of his second book, The Grand Delusion: The Unauthorized True Story of Styx. The self-published book is set for publication December 12, 2006 and will be available through Amazon.com, as well as the book's own website at www.thegranddelusion.com. It is the first-ever biography of the superstar rock group Styx. "This is one of the most beloved groups of its generation," Whitaker said. "It's about time the story is told properly." 

Culled from the author's exclusive interviews with many of the principal players in the career of Styx, including guitarist/bassist/vocalist Glen Burtnik, guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw, and drummer Todd Sucherman, as well as management, record company executives, crew members and fans, The Grand Delusion is the definitive portrait of the Chicago-based rock ensemble that has sold more than thirty-five million records in a career spanning three decades. Beginning with 1977's The Grand Illusion, followed by Pieces Of Eight in 1978, Cornerstone in 1979 and Paradise Theatre in 1980, Styx was the first rock group ever to earn four Triple Platinum albums in a row, selling three million copies each. The group's #1 hit "Babe" was Song of the Year at the 1980 People's Choice Awards, and the 1979 Gallup poll named the group the most popular in America. Styx' other hits include "Lady", "Come Sail Away", "Renegade", "Blue Collar Man", "The Best Of Times", "Too Much Times On My Hands", and, of course, the ubiquitous pop culture reference "Mr. Roboto".
