Dream Theater Fans Are In For A Treat With New Album Says Band was a top 18 story of June 2018: 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.
