Progressive metal icons Dream Theater are gearing up for their new album, A View From The Top Of The World, out October 22nd via InsideOutMusic/Sony Music. Today (22nd), the group has unveiled a video for their latest single “Invisible Monster.” The clip was directed by William “Wombat Felch (Mudvayne, HellYeah, Crobot, Static-X, Nefarious), and follows the story of an artist’s internal struggles.
John Petrucci explains:
“It was written after we’d written a bunch of material. A lot of the music was super energetic and upbeat tempo-wise. Mike suggested we do something a little different though. So, we started working on a more mid-temp song. The hook, riff, and melody changed so naturally. I equate it to ‘Pull Me Under’ back in the day where we’d just start playing, something would come out, and we’d be like, ‘Whoa, that’s cool’. There’s a serendipitous moment where it happens. Lyrically, it’s about how anxiety plagues people. It’s like there’s an invisible monster beating you. You don’t see it, but it’s haunting you all of the time.”
