Dream Theater new album will be released early 2016


Dream Theater's John Petrucci and James LaBrie were recently interviewed by Arte, you can read some excerpts below.

About Dream Theater new album, Petrucci said: "We've been in the studio since January. 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. It's going great. We'll be wrapping up probably in the fall and it'll come out early next year."

About Dream Theater's three-decade-long career, Petrucci said: "It's amazing. Not a lot of bands can say that they've been together for that long. And it's still going incredibly well. We definitely feel like the best is yet to come, and we built something that's really special. So it's amazing. I mean, John Myung and I, we've played together since we were, like, 12 or 13 years old, and I'm still standing on stage with John on bass, looking across. It's a wild feeling."

Added LaBrie: "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. 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."
