Prog metal legends Dream Theater have planned the writing for their new album, due out in 2019. According to singer James LaBrie, the band will get together this June and begin writing songs for their next full-length album. The album will be the follow-up to their last album 2016’s The Astonishing (Roadruner). Last year the band signed a new deal with InsideOut Music, a sub-label of Sony Music. LaBrie was a guest on the Lead Singer Syndrome podcast, which you can read quotes from and hear below.
About the new Dream Theater album, LaBrie commented:
“We’re gonna start back in the studio in June — just all be together and writing and working on the new album We’re hoping that the album will be out, let’s say, February of 2019. And then we’re looking, at this point, that we’d start the next world tour next March.”
