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.
This is it! We've made it to the final round of our Greatest Metal Bassist competition. Having started with 32 bassists, we're now down to only two. This matchup is for the gold and we couldn't have asked for a much better final pairing than this!
You might be starting to recognize the faces of some of these kids, but it's impossible not to be blown away whenever you watch them perform some of metal's most timeless songs. This time, the group of little ones pulled off one of Dream Theater's biggest hits!
We've got two semifinal battles for you to vote on and both feature incredibly intriguing matchups. In this first battle, two of the genre's most progressive bassists go head-to-head for a spot in the finals.
Dream Theater's new self-titled new album has not just been garnering great reviews, but also a huge reaction from music fans. The disc recently debuted on top of Billboard's Hard Rock Albums chart while entering at No. 7 on the overall Billboard 200 tally.
