A new album from Dream Theater is on its way and prog-rock fans are excited to hear what the band has in store for their next release.
According to a Loud Wire report, John Petrucci revealed what to expect from their release and stated that they have been working on a new Dream Theater album since the start of this year, claiming how the release could potentially come anytime next year.
“We’ve been in the studio since January,” Petrucci said. “In fact, this tour has broken up our time in the studio. In fact, we’re doing some work here on the road as well. We’re very busy in hotel rooms, [doing] some last-minute writing and getting some things done. But, yeah, we’ve been in the studio since January.”
As for the current progress of the new record, the Dream Theater guitarist revealed that it is definitely on time and that fans should expect it anytime soon.
“It’s going great,” he claimed. “We’ll be wrapping up probably in the fall and it’ll come out early next year.”
Singer James LaBrie also added his thoughts in the interview. He claimed how thrilled he is about the new Dream Theater album and how happy he is that their fans are still beside them throughout the years.
“It’s pretty amazing to be in the kind of industry that we are and to say that we’ve been around for thirty years and we’re still relevant today,” LaBrie claimed in the same interview. “You know, the fact is that we still feel that we’re evolving as a band. We’re continuing to grow musically, and we see that our audience and our fan base is continually being cultivated. So, just to be in a situation as that says so much. It’s so much to be grateful for.”
