American progressive metal legends, Dream Theater has shared the new official press release about their upcoming album “Distance Over Time”. According to statement, the album will be released on February 22, 2019.

Dream Theater mastermind John Petruci produced the new album. In a recent press release, Petrucci revealed his main goal as a producer. He said:

“When I listen back to the album, I can distinctly recall every moment of the writing process; where I was standing in the room, what inspired us in that instant and the meaning behind each song.

As a producer, my goal was to try and create the best-sounding Dream Theater record we’ve ever made so that listeners can just be enveloped in the music.

I really wanted this recording to truly reflect the spirit, joy and passion that went into making the album and for people to walk away feeling some of the organic nature, personality and raw energy that the band captured while together in the studio.

For me, I think it accomplishes that and I hope that other people will feel the same way.”

The new album, “Distance Over Time” was mixed by Ben Grosse and mastered by Tom Baker.

Dream Theater’s latest album “The Astonishing” was released in 2016 via Roadrunner Records.
