James LaBrie has been a bit of a workhorse lately, with Dream Theater's eponymous album and his solo disc 'Impermanent Resonance' both having hit shelves in 2013. Now, he's set to release a nine-song digital EP named after the opening track on his solo album.
The effort will not feature any brand-new songs, but will boast a number of gems and unheard remixes that fans will surely love to get their hands on.
Megadeth's run through the Classic Cage Match circuit continues. In the most recent contest, the band's 1990 single 'Holy Wars … the Punishment Due' bested Judas Priest's 'Painkiller' from the same year. Now, Megadeth try for their fifth and final victory and entrance into the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame.
Dream Theater had a massive 2013, releasing the critically acclaimed 'Dream Theater' album along with their 'Live at Luna Park' DVD. Dream Theater's grandiose live show was captured in the 'Luna Park' DVD, but what does the band have planned for their 2014 live experience? Guitarist John Petrucci told us all about it in an exclusive interview.
It was a good Christmas for many, but Dream Theater fans got a little something extra in their proverbial stocking this year. The band offered a whole bunch of new live tracks as a thank you for the fan support on their 'A Dramatic Tour of Events' run.
Dream Theater will be getting plenty of frequent flyer miles in 2014. They have a previously announced European tour lined up beginning in mid-January, and have now revealed dates for their North American 'Along for the Ride Tour' that begins March 20 in Toronto.
Dream Theater have received their second overall Grammy nomination. The progressive metal giants were nominated for the golden gramophone in the 2014 Best Metal Performance category for 'The Enemy Inside.' In response to the nomination, Dream Theater have released a statement to show their appreciation.
Metal may not get the wealth of recognition that other genres receive, but the big category that every metalhead music fan should be paying attention to is the Best Metal Performance category. The nominees for the 2014 Grammy Awards were just announced and there's a diverse group of acts populating the category.
Dream Theater's new DVD ‘Live at Luna Park’ recently entered at No. 1 on the Soundscan music DVD chart. Filmed in Argentina during the final leg of their A Dramatic Tour of Events in 2011, the DVD / Blu-Ray release comes in a variety of editions including a deluxe set that features a 60-page hardback photo book. Loudwire recently had the chance to speak with the band's guitarist John Petrucci about the new release, as well as their plans for their 2014 tour.
