Yes, this is THAT Styx! Part of Apocaloptimysticism, is Optimism. Styx has been making powerful, popular, optimistic music since 1972. We speak with “new” singer, Lawrence Gowan, who has fronted the band since 1999. Their newest record, “The Mission,” recorded in 2017, cements their legacy of crowd pleasing power ballads, and Progressive hard rock. When they recently passed through Grand Junction, the Apocaloptimystic was compelled to check in with them. A fun and insightful look at the Band, their enduring legacy, and life in a Rock and Roll Band.
