Dream Theater Announce UK Dates for 2014

Dream Theater Announce UK Dates for 2014 -

Dream Theater have announced they will be returning to the UK next year (2014) in support of their self-titled 12th album.

The progressive metal quintet will perform a trio of shows in London, Manchester and Wolverhampton following the release of their new album in September.

The three UK dates are part of Long Island outfit's European tour which begins in Portugal on January 15 and wraps up in Helsinki on February 24th.

John Petrucci recently said of the new record (via Classic Rock): 

"I see every new album as an opportunity to start over - to either improve upon a direction that's been evolving over time, or to completely break new ground.

"This is the first self-titled album of our career, and there's nothing I can think of that makes a statement of musical and creative identity stronger than that. We've fully explored all the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic."
