Dream Theater Update

Dream Theater -- Santiago, Chile. 2014 John ZoccoHi all,

After several successful world tours and another Grammy nomination for Dream Theater, the followup to their last eponymously titled album is well under way. Since January, I’ve been in a New York area studio with the band as they fleshed out outlines, themes and completed the writing of the new album. The recording project had been put on hold temporarily while Dream Theater toured across Europe, playing festivals as large as 750,000 fans (see photo below). As James has mentioned in several interviews, we are reconvening to begin recording vocals in August.

 

woodstock_0John [Petrucci] and James [LaBrie] were interviewed recently at the Wacken Festival in Germany and outlined more details about the new album here. As well, you can watch the interview on YouTube.

Speaking of, this YT video of bloopers reminds me of some days we have in the studio
