Dream Theater Stream New Song ‘The Enemy Inside’
As Dream Theater fans anxiously wait until Sept. 24 for the band’s self-titled album, a song from the release can now be heard. The single, ‘The Enemy Inside,’ is available for streaming!
The six-minute track is punchy and melodic with a catchy chorus. There’s also plenty of proggy goodness, with James LaBrie‘s vocals not kicking in for almost 90 seconds. Keyboardist Jordan Rudess is prominently featured along with a couple of nice guitar solos from John Petrucci.
Petrucci produced the album as well and talked about the self-titled release. “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,” states Petrucci. 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.”
The self-titled album is Dream Theater’s second record with drummer Mike Mangini, although it’s the first where he was involved with the entire writing process. Mangini replaced longtime drummer Mike Portnoy, who recently said he’d be willing to rejoin the band, ‘in a heartbeat.’
In addition to the self-titled album, Dream Theater’s concert DVD ‘Live at Luna Park‘ will hit stores on Nov. 5. Frontman James LaBrie also has a solo album, ‘Impermanent Resonance,’ that will be released tomorrow (Aug. 6). Click below to hear Dream Theater’s ‘The Enemy Inside.’
