Styx is slowly adding new dates to its 2013 itinerary. The band now has four February shows on the books for Santa Ynez and Oroville, California; North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Orlando, Florida.

Styx co-founder and guitarist J.Y. Young told us that although Styx may be best known for its classic pop and ballad hits, the band's Chicago brand of prog rock remains a major component of its musical DNA: "Y'know, early on we were doing a lot of prog-type things back then. And, duh, The Grand Illusion -- that's pomp and circumstance -- (The) Grand Illusion; there ya go. So, it (was) a huge part of the influence before the super soft pop side of our band started to emerge in the late-'70s. And we've gone away from that. We're back, sort of, to the prog era. That's really what we've focused on at this point."
