Dream Theater is getting ready to unleash their self titled album on September 24, 2013, their follow-up to 2011’s “A Dramatic Turn of Events.” Today, USA Today has premiered The Enemy Inside, the first single from the album and the band’s first new music in nearly two years. Check it out here. The song sounds good, but the vocals always kill it for me.
“I see every new album as an opportunity to start over,” John Petrucci says in a release. “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. We’re incredibly excited about Dream Theater and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Dream Theater will tour Europe beginning in January and plans to play North American dates beginning in March.
