Dream Theater share video update on new album

Posted by on June 18, 2018

Dream Theater have been in the studio for over a week now working on their follow-up to 2016’s The Astonishing. The group shared a video providing an update on the process. Vocalist James LaBrie and guitarist John Petrucci are featured in the video as LaBrie stated how fans are in for a treat for the next record.

He commented:

“John and I are here at the studio. We’ve been here for one week, and it is going sensational. Everybody is in the one room, and we’re all interacting with one another, and I’ve gotta tell you, if the first week is any indication of where this album is going, you’re in for a treat.”

Petrucci added:

“Yeah, the vibe is really cool, the hang is cool, the atmosphere, the inspiration. It’s been great  there’s a lot of ideas flowing. It’s already been really productive, only a week in, which is cool.”

James explained about the style:

“Not to mention just the style of the music, which I think a lot of people will stand up and applaud at this point. But there’s a heaviness to it, there’s an aggression to it. But you mentioned something earlier when we were talking about this, and you said, what was it? The five…”

John chimed in:

“The five pillars of D.T. I think everyone’s on the same page with the type of record this is gonna be. I mean, so far the music is heavy, it’s progressive, it’s melodic, it’s shredding, and it’s also epic. So it has all those elements, which… they are the five pillars of DREAM THEATER, if you wanna call it that. We just called it that; there you go.”

James continued:

“The whole thing is that everyone’s feeling it, and there’s such an incredible synergy going on here. This environment that we’re in, this particular studio  and no, we’re not revealing to you what studio but it’s so conducive to what we’re trying to attain.”
