Get ready to nerd out, y’all.
Progressive metal masters Dream Theater will release their new, self-titled album on September 24.
The album will be the band’s 12th studio release overall, and fourth with Roadrunner Records. It is self-titled.
Says guitarist John Petrucci about Dream Theater: “I see every new album as an opportunity to start over. To either build or improve upon a direction that has been evolving over time or to completely break new ground.
“This is the first self-titled album of our career and there is nothing I can think of that makes a statement of musical and creative identity stronger than that. We’ve fully explored all of the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic.
“We’re incredibly excited about Dream Theater and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
What gives with all these bands going the self-titled route these days. I mean, I guess there’s nothing wrong with that, but it seems lazy to me.
Take the five additional minutes it’d take to read through your lyrics and find some cool combination of words, and there you go…album title.
