DENNIS DeYOUNG: ’26 East, Vol 2′ – final ever album release announced by legendary singer former Styx founder member

The legendary vocalist and musician Dennis DeYoung has announced the release of his final studio album, ’26 East, Vol 2′. A fond farewell to recorded music by the former Styx founder member, it follows the spring 2020 release of Vol 1. As with its acclaimed predecessor, ’26 East, Vol 2′ once again hints strongly at DeYoung’s rock roots with Styx. The production and musicianship are simply epic, while his timeless vocal arrangements are delivered in spades. It is a fitting goodbye and a final signature on an outstanding body of work that will surely stand the test of time.
