InsideOutMusic is pleased to announce the signing of legendary Symphony X guitarist Michael Romeo, for the release of his upcoming album ‘War of the Worlds, Part II’. The follow up to his 2018 album ‘War of the Worlds, Part 1’, will be released on Feb 4th, 2022.

For WOTW2, Romeo welcomed a couple of returning players – drummer John Macaluso and bassist John “JD” DeServio – but the album marks the first time he worked with Croatian singer Dino Jelusick. “I go way back with John and JD, so they were the obvious choices, but this time I wanted to try something different with the vocals”, Romeo says. “Dino came highly recommended, and he totally nailed it! He really brought an exciting element to the music.

The new album proves again, that Michael Romeo is one of the most renowned songwriters in progressive metal. His new studio effort is a mind-blowing return that till take every progressive metal enthusiast on a journey!

Stay tuned for more things to come from Michael Romeo in the upcoming weeks.
