FIRST NEW STUDIO ALBUM SINCE 2004; BAND TO TOUR IN 2011
Response Records has announced the upcoming release of Apollo, the hugely anticipated new
album from Stockholm
Syndrome. The album - which follows the band's 2004 debut, Holy Happy Hour - arrives
everywhere on February 15, 2011.
Stockholm Syndrome is the collaborative brainchild of two gifted musicians, Widespread Panic bassist Dave
Schools and singer/songwriter Jerry Joseph. Initially conceived as a side project, the alliance soon
became a full-fledged band, with the able accompaniment of guitarist Eric McFadden, keyboardist
Danny Louis, and drummer Wally Ingram.
Apollo sees Stockholm Syndrome building upon its initial outing by distilling a distinctive sound fueled by
freewheeling creativity and incendiary rock power. Songs like "Finding" and the epic title track showcase the band's
virtuosic interplay and genre-blurring ingenuity, all centered by Jerry Joseph's creative, cathartic lyricism.

at the famed Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas - Apollo places Joseph's soulful vocals and
songwriting gifts at the forefront, all the while confirming Stockholm Syndrome's remarkable ability to bridge sonic
styles spanning pop, psychedelia, and full-on rock 'n roll.
In January, Stockholm Syndrome will herald the release of Apollo by taking to the open sea on Jam
9, the 2011 installment of the annual ocean-faring music festival - for full details, please click here. The band will will also tour in 2011 in support of
