Dream Theater Detail Upcoming Self-Titled New Album

Dream Theater Detail Upcoming Self-Titled New Album -

Long Island prog-metal pioneers Dream Theater have now revealed the artwork and tracklisting for their much anticipated self-titled 12th album, which is due for release on September 23.

The new record will be the second to feature Mike Portnoy's drum replacement Mike Mangini following his departure in 2010.

Shred- extraordinaire John Petrucci recently said of the album:

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

"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. We've fully explored all of the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic."

Dream Theater will be available in a number of formats including special edition CD, double-vinyl and limited-edition box set.
