Styx Would Consider Making Different Kind Of Album


(Classic Rock) Styx's next album "has to be different" from their previous material if they want to succeed, bassist Ricky Phillips says. The band haven't issued an album of original material since 2003's Cyclorama - with mainman Tommy Shaw insisting they'd be "taking their time" with the follow-up last year.

Now Phillips says they're considering re-entering the studio - but their sound will need to have a new "twist." He tells Sleaze Roxx: "Yeah, it's on the table. We'd love to do something new. It has to be different. It has to be something that Styx hasn't done. We want to ensure something isn't 'just another Styx record.' It has to have a twist.

"We're not going to release an album that is going to be crap - it's going to be good. We're aware that it will be fodder for the press, but so be it. Also, something like that will go over well with one person and a failure with the next." Read more here.
