Stockholm Syndrome: Apollo


Stockholm Syndrome
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.

Produced by Dave Schools in a converted chicken coop at Cotatai, California's Prairie Sun Recording, with additional recording 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 Cruise 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 Apollo.
