During a recent interview with Metal Wani, Jordan Rudess talked a bit about the band’s new album. According to him, the effort will be released in late February 2019.
Rudess said the following about the album [transcribed by Blabbermouth]:
“Right now, we’re mixing it. It’s being mixed as we speak. It sounds awesome. I’m so excited about it. There’s a very, very strong energy around the band these days. We all feel very connected and excited about what’s coming. We can’t wait to unleash the whole thing on everybody. And that’s all gonna happen really, really soon as well; it’s just right around the corner.”
He recently talked about the effort with Lots Of Musik as well saying:
“But I’m excited because I feel like this new album is going to be a home run. I get it – Dream Theater fans don’t like to go for too long of a gentle ride. Maybe a ballad here and there, but I think the bulk of them are not so into the Disney-esque influence. [Laughs]
“We did that and we loved it, we had a great time, it was the biggest production ever. But now the next stage is back to the roots, back to the core of the sound – screaming Hammond organ, killing leads, chunky riffs, slamming drums, and everybody will be there moshing! [Laughs]”
