Dream Theater Fans Are In For A Treat With New Album Says Band

Dream Theater have released a new video update that revealed the acclaimed band is in a recording studio working on music for the follow up to their 2016 album "The Astonishing".

Frontman James LaBrie says in the clip, "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... there's a heaviness to it, there's an aggression to it."

Guitarist John Petrucci added, "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." Watch the video here.

Bruce Springsteen Rocks Asbury Lanes Reopening

(hennemusic) Bruce Springsteen was among the acts on hand to help reopen the Asbury Park, NJ venue and bowling alley, Asbury Lanes, on June 18th and video from the event has been shared online.

The grand re-opening event follows the locale's closure for remodelling in 2015 and takeover by area real estate investment company, iStar, as part of a multibillion dollar redevelopment plan for the city.

According to Springsteen fanzine Backstreets - who are also streaming pro-shot video highlights from the event - Springsteen first appeared on stage to welcome the crowd following opening remarks and a welcome from iStar CEO Jay Sugarman.

"It's been a joy watching what's been happening in town over the past ten, fifteen and twenty years," said the rocker. "I feel like the Ghost of Christmas Past walking down the boardwalk, but that's okay, because it's fun to watch Asbury's future unfold in front of me."

Springsteen introduced his friend and collaborator Danny Clinch's Tangiers Blues Band, who delivered covers of classics by The Talking Heads, the Beastie Boys and Velvet Underground, among others, before being joined by Asbury Park's most famous son.

The lineup began a four-song set with Springsteen with Huey "Piano" Smith's 1957 track, "Rockin' Pneumonia & the Boogie Woogie Flu", followed by an extended version of Willie Dixon's classic, "I Just Want To Make Love To You , which saw several Springsteen guitar solos while taking over the role as bandleader, calling out solos and chord changes and generally keeping Clinch's band on their toes.

The set continued with Don Raye's 1940 hit "Down The Road A Piece", which Springsteen dedicated to the "folks from the old Asbury Lanes who kept this place going," before wrapping up with a jam on the bar band track, "Twist & Shout."

Portugal. The Man followed the Springsteen blues set with Clinch and company to close out the evening at Asbury Lanes. See some video from the event

In Search Of Sun Release 'In The Garden' Video

In Search Of Sun have released a brand new music video for their track "In The Garden". The song comes from their latest studio album "Virgin Funk Mother" which was released last year.

Frontman Adam Leader had this to say, "There are plenty of leeches in this world that have no other intentions but to suck the life out of you for their own selfish reasons, especially when they choose to not understand the importance of the ones closest to them striving to achieve something creative and worthwhile, which we all know takes years of mental, physical and financial sacrifice.

'In The Garden' is a massive 'f you' statement to every single self-absorbed individual out there unwilling to let the people closest to them grow and flourish. You, the narcissists are the ones who will wind up alone, because you choose to not have the capacity to unconditionally love others, and instead continue to believe that the whole world revolves around you. You should've known better!" Watch the video here.

Singled Out: Matt Taelor's Nobody But You

Indie rock/singer-songwriter Matt Taelor recently released a new single called "Nobody But You" from his debut EP "After Midnight". To celebrate we asked Matt to tell us about the song. Here is the story:

As a songwriter I think one of the most exciting ways a song can come to you is when you least expect it. A lot of times songs can come from playing a chord progression over and over until you get a cool melody idea, or scribbling a bunch of random phrases and words onto paper until you find something that strikes you. This was different. I was driving home on the Merritt Parkway and if you know the Merritt Parkway then you'll know the next part of this story is not a huge plot twist-there was a ridiculous amount of traffic due to construction. It was a perfect excuse to crank the volume in my car and jam out to some old Maroon 5 (they were excellent in their Songs About Jane days) and to listen to some new music that Justin Timberlake had released at the time.

I was groovin' and singing along in my car as I moved absolutely nowhere and then something happened that mildy devastated me in the moment. The music stopped. Was it my Spotify account acting slow? Poor cell service? My aux chord not working? I'll never know because the traffic suddenly cleared up and I was moving again with my eyes on the road. Then all of a sudden it happened, I started randomly humming a melody that slowly became words.

Right when I got home I took out pen and paper and wrote down the words and recorded a voice note. I then sent this voice note out to my producer. I needed to know what he thought because I would be flying out to LA to record with him the very next day. He responded back with "Yeah we definitely gotta record this one." So we did. It was awesome and I've never been so thankful to be stuck in traffic on the Merritt Parkway because it gave me my latest single "Nobody but You." I hope you groove out to it next time you're in your car.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
