Sons Of Apollo have released the Vicente Cordero-directed video today for 'Alive' from their highly anticipated debut album, 'Psychotic Symphony', as well as extending their touring plans to take in more headline dates across Europe and the UK.

Sons Of Apollo are former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal (ex-Guns N' Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force).

Here's 'Alive':

More UK and European headline dates have been added to the touring schedule, in addition to the already announced Summer festivals plus extensive North American shows. Full dates are below.

Mike Portnoy tells us:

"Ever since this line-up assembled to make 'Psychotic Symphony', the thing I've been most excited about is anticipating how insane I know this band is going to be on stage. Well, the wait is almost over!

"Here are the first US dates that will get to witness this 'five-headed musical spectacle' live on stage in February. We plan on being on tour all year long, all over the globe, with plenty of dates now being announced for summer festivals throughout Europe, but these are the very first shows that will get to witness this amazing line-up in person for the first time. We can't wait!"
