(Prog) Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess has given details on The Astonishing novel. It's based on the band's 13th studio album, which revolves around a dystopian future where the power of music is used to wage war against an evil empire.

Rudess says: "Great news today! The Astonishing is going to be written as a novel. The book will add subplots, new characters, answer questions, and bring along some surprises, too.

"We're partnering with my good friend Peter Orullian - a very cool cat, who will write The Astonishing, which will come as a limited edition with lots of cool exclusives, including audio clips of songs we didn't use on the album."

A statement on Dream Theater's website adds: "Orullian is currently published by Tor Books, with an ongoing fantasy series in which music plays a key role, making him the perfect writer to adapt The Astonishing." Read more here.
