DREAM THEATER - New Album Coming In September2013-06-06
Progressive metal giants Dream Theater have announced that their new album will be self-titled for the first time in their career, which usually means it is a strong statement from the band. You can expect the album to arrive on September 24th via Roadrunner Records. Get ready for some new prog. Also, you can check out the band in the studio on the report HERE and maybe hear some new tunes.
Dream Theater was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York, with guitarist John Petrucci producing and Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Rush) engineering and mixing. The album is also their first to have been written and recorded with drummer Mike Mangini wholly integrated into the creative process from the start.
Guitarist Petrucci stated: "I see every new album as an opportunity to start over. To either build or improve upon a direction that has been evolving over time or to completely break new ground. This is the first self-titled album of our career and there is nothing I can think of that makes a statement of musical and creative identity stronger than that. We've fully explored all of the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic. We're incredibly excited about Dream Theater and can't wait for everyone to hear it."
