Dream Theater Announces New Album, Tour Dates

Dream Theater: Distance Over TimeDream Theater fans rejoice! The progressive metal band has announced their 14th studio album, Distance Over Time, will be released on February 22nd, 2019. The new record, which is their first in three years, is described as “showcasing a newfound creativity… while maintaining the elements that have garnered them devoted fans around the globe.”

The whole band, including six-string bass wizard John Myung, is participating in a three-video series of in-studio interviews to discuss the album. When asked about the concept of making the album the bassist said, “We went back to the way we used to do things. I think it was a little freer and not as limiting when we’re just all in a room working on stuff. We all really care about how the process unfolds, and that’s the key. As a result, I think you hear it in the music.”

Unfortunately, Myung doesn’t chime in on the first video, but you can watch parts one and two here:
