Prog-Gods Dream Theater are set to make their return to the charts with the upcoming release of their 14th studio album Distance Over Time which will finally get released on February 22nd, 2019 via InsideOutMusic/Sony Music Australia.
On the album guitarist/producer John Petrucci stated:
“When I listen back to the album, I can distinctly recall every moment of the writing process; where I was standing in the room, what inspired us in that instant and the meaning behind each song. As a producer, my goal was to try and create the best-sounding Dream Theater record we’ve ever made so that listeners can just be enveloped in the music. I really wanted this recording to truly reflect the spirit, joy and passion that went into making the album and for people to walk away feeling some of the organic nature, personality and raw energy that the band captured while together in the studio. For me, I think it accomplishes that and I hope that other people will feel the same way,”
Its hard to believe the band have been at it together for over three decades (in some way shape or form) but they still manage to bring back the longtime supporters keen and eager to see what they have to offer.
Keyboardist Jordan Rudess spoke to us recently about his upcoming solo Australian Tour and hinted that he could play something from the new album but we’d never know:
Well when I improvise, you never know what’s going to come out. But if I played something like that I wouldn’t tell you anyway.
There’s more still to come, until then, get keen.
