According to frontman James LaBrie, Dream Theater will gather in the studio to start work on their 14th album in a couple of months. The band hope the follow-up to 2016’s The Astonishing will be released early next year. “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.” Last year LaBrie had stated in n interview “We all pretty much know where we want to go with the next album, but we have a clear, clear vision of what it needs to be in direction, where we want to take it. That’s exciting.” Keyboardist Jordan Rudess had previously said the new LP wouldn’t be a concept album in the style of The Astonishing.
