Progressive metal champions Dream Theater are poised to release their latest album, a self-titled effort, next month, marking the group's second disc with drummer Mike Mangini. As we all know, Mangini replaced former drummer Mik
Dream Theater experienced a drastic shift in 2010 when drummer Mike Portnoy announced his departure from the legendary band. Portnoy's plan was to take a temporary break from Dream Theater, but the group chose to cut all ties with their longtime drummer. Despite the drama, Portnoy has just revealed that he would rejoin Dream Theater "in a heartbeat."
It was announced earlier this month that Dream Theater singer James LaBrie will be releasing his third solo album 'Impermanent Resonance' on Aug. 6. Now the track listing has been unveiled along with the opening track 'Agony' (listen above).
Though there had been talk of a spring release, Dream Theater have nailed down a Nov. 5 street date for their upcoming concert video, 'Live At Luna Park.' The group decided to share the experience of performing for their large South American fan base during two special nights in Bueno Aires, Argentina last year.
Dream Theater's fans are a dedicated bunch and the love definitely goes both ways. Band members John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess recently took some time to record video messages to thank their fans for pushing the group's 'Images and Words' album to victory in Loudwire's very own 2013 March Metal Madness competition to determine the best metal album of all-time. Watch both video messages below.
Dream Theater have done their part, and will now wait for the editors to complete their work on a new upcoming live DVD that’s expected to arrive in 2013. The group played Buenos Aires, Argentina last Sunday and Monday (Aug. 19 and 20) at Estadio Luna Park to provide the basis for the upcoming release.
It has been a week since Apple founder Steve Jobs passed away at age 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Many musicians and entertainers took to social media posting their thoughts.
