Dream Theater have premiered an animated video for their song “Barstool Warrior.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Distance Over Time.”
Guitarist John Petrucci commented:
“‘Barstool Warrior‘ is a fictional tale about two characters, unrelated but connected in their lament over being stuck in dead end situations. The first is a local townie, alcoholic who never escaped the humdrum of his sleepy, maritime village.
The second, a woman trapped in an abusive relationship trying to survive from day to day while questioning what makes her stay. Both are able to reimagine their lives and find the courage to embrace a better future by embodying the person they dream of being.”
