DREAM THEATER Finish Writing Lyrics For New Album

Monday, 20th May 2013

Guitarist John Petrucci of American progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER has posted a quick update regarding the progress of the band’s forthcoming studio album:

“Just finished my final lyric for the new DT album. I start solos in about a week. Time to put down the pen and get to the woodshed!”

Dream Theater fans are invited to check out the latest podcast from DTNorway (Official Fan Club) with Petrucci, who talks about Dream Theater’s plan for the summer of 2013 and the new album, which is currently in the works. Check out the podcast via iTunes here.

The band’s Live At Luna Park, a live concert captured on two-DVD, Blu-ray, Digital Video, two-DVD/three-CD, Blu-ray/three-CD, and a deluxe edition (two-DVD/Blu-ray/three-CD), will drop in May. To whet the appetite of their fans, the band have released a new trailer, found at the bottom of the page.

Live At Luna Park was filmed over two nights in South America – home to one of Dream Theater’s most ardent fanbases. The DVD was filmed after a 15-month world tour, hitting 35 countries.

“This is without a doubt the closest a viewer at home will come to experiencing a live Dream Theater concert,” states  Petrucci. “Between the hi-def and 3D video, the huge audio mix and the documentary style behind the scenes footage, you are truly transported to the arena and completely immersed in the entire live experience.”

“We have the greatest fans on the planet and the people of Argentina are no exception!” adds Petrucci. “The energy and vibe at Luna Park was truly electric and contagious. The perfect synergy between band and audience. We are immensely proud of this DVD and incredibly excited to share it with everyone!”
