Neal Morse Band Stream Songs From New Album

(Prog) The Neal Morse Band have released a lyric video of "Long Day/Overture" with Prog. The tracks are taken from their upcoming concept album The Similitude Of A Dream, which is set to launch on November 11 via Metal Blade Records.

Speaking about the follow-up to 2014's The Grand Experiment, Morse says: "The Similitude Of A Dream is loosely and sometimes directly based on the book Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan which was originally published in 1678.

"The book chronicles the spiritual journey of a man from the City Of Destruction to a place of Deliverance. Someone had suggested to me that I do a concept album based on this book - but I forgot about it. Then when I began writing new songs last December, the suggestion came to my mind.

"I had never read the book, so I searched the story outline and began to write some little song bits and instrumentals based on what I had read. Those bits combined with the ideas that the other guys brought to the table then miraculously exploded into this double concept album."

He continues: "Funny thing is, this album only really covers about the first 75 or 80 pages. Maybe we should've made a five disc collection! Well, we'll save that for later." Read more and check out the new song here.
