If you know me outside of radio at all you know I’m a big science, space, sci-fi junkie. From super heroes to time travel to space travel to the possibilities of an endless multiverse, yep, you can count me in.
On June 16th Styx released their 16th studio album, a concept album called The Mission. The music and lyrics tell the story from the viewpoint of the six-person crew during the first manned mission to Mars onboard a new nuclear-powered interplanetary spacecraft in the year of 2033.
That is a lot of story to try to tell in just a single 43 minute album. So to help you prepare for The Mission, I spoke to Tommy Shaw about the new album, or shall we say adventure. – Steve Black
