Progressive metal champions Dream Theater are poised to release their latest album, a self-titled effort, next month, marking the group's second disc with drummer Mike Mangini. As we all know, Mangini replaced former drummer Mike Portnoy, who left the band then attempted to return but was rebuffed. With Portnoy recently again saying he would return to the band in a heartbeat if asked, frontman James Labrie has weighed in on the matter.
We recently had the pleasure of attending a Dream Theater listening party in New York City for the band's upcoming self-titled release. The members of Dream Theater and those in attendance all hung out with some lovely food and drink while the album blasted through massive speakers, so we took the opportunity to chat with legendary Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci.
Just as Avenged Sevenfold were at the doorstep of the Cage Match Hall of Fame, progressive metal masters Dream Theater swept the rug out from under A7X. Now carving out their own Cage Match trail to the Hall of Fame, Dream Theater face a familiar name with a new face.
Avenged Sevenfold continue their Cage Match domination with a landslide victory over Alice in Chains. A7X only need one more win to enter the Cage Match Hall of Fame, and this next band boasts a fan base just as rabid as Avenged Sevenfold's.
Dream Theater experienced a drastic shift in 2010 when drummer Mike Portnoy announced his departure from the legendary band. Portnoy's plan was to take a temporary break from Dream Theater, but the group chose to cut all ties with their longtime drummer. Despite the drama, Portnoy has just revealed that he would rejoin Dream Theater "in a heartbeat."
With the release date for Dream Theater singer James LaBrie's latest solo album drawing near, the musician has unveiled a lyric video for 'Back on the Ground.' LaBrie's third solo effort, 'Impermanent Resonance,' is due Aug. 6.
It was announced earlier this month that Dream Theater singer James LaBrie will be releasing his third solo album 'Impermanent Resonance' on Aug. 6. Now the track listing has been unveiled along with the opening track 'Agony' (listen above).
