Dream Theater Announce New Album 'Distance Over Time' And Spring North American Tour

Wednesday, 07 November 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Dream Theater will release a new album early next year.

The prog legends will put out 'Distance Over Time' on February 22 through InsideOutMusic/Sony Music. The follow up to 2016's 'The Astonishing' was recorded this summer at the Yonderbarn studio in New York and was produced by the band's guitarist, John Petrucci, who said:

“When I listen back to the album, I can distinctly recall every moment of the writing process; where I was standing in the room, what inspired us in that instant and the meaning behind each song. As a producer, my goal was to try and create the best-sounding Dream Theater record we’ve ever made so that listeners can just be enveloped in the music. I really wanted this recording to truly reflect the spirit, joy, and passion that went into making the album and for people to walk away feeling some of the organic nature, personality, and raw energy that the band captured while together in the studio. For me, I think it accomplishes that and I hope that other people will feel the same way,”

The band will support the record with a North American tour they have labelled Distance Over Time Tour + 20 Years of Metropolis Pt.2 ('Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory' is the name of their 1999 album). It will kick off on March 20 in San Diego and conclude on May 1 in Austin, with a show in Mexico set to follow on May 4. Tickets go on sale at 10am local time on November 9.
