Dream Theater frontman James LaBrie just announced via his official Facebook page that he is beginning to write for his next solo album. LaBrie’s longtime writing partner Matt Guillory will once again lend his talents for the Dream Theater vocalist’s third solo album.

Keyboardist Matt Guillory began working with LaBrie more than a decade ago in the progressive metal project MullMuzzler. After releasing two albums under the name, the duo most recently composed LaBrie’s 2010 solo album ‘Static Impulse.’

Labrie posted the following update on his Facebook page:

“Hey everybody! Matt Guillory and I are very happy to announce that writing for my next solo album has started. We’re very pleased with how well ‘Static Impulse’ was received and are excited to be making a follow-up.”

“You can expect all the usual suspects: (Marco Sfogli, Peter Wildoer, Ray Riendeau) In addition to this, we’d also like to announce that Peter Wichers (Soilwork) is on-board as a co-songwriter. Peter loved ‘Static Impulse’ and looks forward to making a kickass record with us. He is extremely talented and we’re stoked to have him! More news to come. Stay tuned – and Happy New Year!”

Meanwhile, Dream Theater are as popular as ever — releasing one of the most celebrated albums of 2011, ‘A Dramatic Turn of Events,’ which earned them their first Grammy nomination.
