Dream Theater Reveal Details For 34-Track Album The Astonishing

(Classic Rock) Dream Theater have unveiled the full cover and running order for their 34-track album The Astonishing, which will be released early next year. The band previously confirmed plans to premiere their 13th album in full on the road, starting with a European theatre tour that kicks off in February.

The artwork focuses on flying spherical devices they've called NOMACs, while three of the eight leading characters in the story - Gabriel, Emperor Nafaryus and Arhys - have been named on the band's website.

Dream Theater say: "This album cover extends an ominous invitation into the retro-futurist dystopian setting of The Astonishing. The deceptively beautiful yet chillingly totalitarian image is a bold harbinger of the visual components and ideas presented by the sonic story that is our most ambitious creative work to date."
