Dream Theater to enter studio in 2018 for ‘New Album’
During the recent stay in Budapest, Dream Theater singer James LaBrie talked in recent interview.
The band is mostly focused on touring by the end of the year. LaBrie said:
“We do this tour for the rest of 2017 and in 2018 we’re gonna make a new album. And we’re pretty psyched because we’re already know what we’re gonna do. But I’m not gonna tell you. [laughs] It’s really important for us that the new album will be our best effort. It should be who we are at that particular moment. We still want to create something that’s better than what we did before. That’s what keeps you interested in what you do. But if along the way we feel that there is another album we should recognize once again, then we’ll do it.“
He also added:
“We’re just planting seeds for now. We’re just putting some stuff together but it’s pretty cool what’s happening. The real nuts and bolts aren’t gonna happen until we’re done touring. Then we will go to a studio and be together every day just to write songs. But we have a lot of ideas already.“
Later in the year I will be doing a 25th Anniversary Retrospective of Dream Theaters Images & Words, 15th Anniversary Retrospective of Dream Theaters Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence right here on Power Of Prog.
James Labrie is also on the recent Ayreon The Source as ‘The Historian’
