Styx Leader Says Recording Days Might Be In The Past
Styx guitarist J.Y. Young says that the band's studio days might just be a thing of the past. Although Styx has kept busy in the studio with a recent covers album and an EP of re-recorded classics, they haven't released an album of new material since 2003's Cyclorama.
Despite the members of Styx still actively writing, the band's current schedule is focused more on the band's road work than laying down tracks for a new album: "There's a lot of material there, there just hasn't been the, the commitment to it. We are doing so well as a live concert act. And normally you would make a record to try and expand your audience. And, 'cause we're artists and we like to write, y'know, we haven't seriously gotten together and decided to make a record because it's a commitment. And when I look -- even (the Rolling) Stones and (Paul) McCartney, they put out a new album and who plays it on the air?"
