Dennis DeYoung (Styx) has a new album coming out on June 11th titled “26 East, Vol. 2”. You can pre-order it here. Ahead of the forthcoming album is the new single The Last Guitar Hero featuring Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave). Right out of the gate you will notice a very cool groove. I mean it literally pulls you in. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the heaviness of the track, I wasn’t expecting that. Not sure if Morello is the influence for that or not. DeYoung sings well, but I never felt his voice really worked well with a heavy song, he’s more of a balladeer, more melodic singer to me. Nonetheless I can’t deny this is a good tune. Morello nocks out of the park with guitar solo. No matter what this is worthy of your ear time. The video is an animated lyric one, nothing too excited there. Check it out below.
