In a new interview with “Trunk Nation”, Dream Theater mastermind John Petrucci explained when they will go into studio to record new album. He said:

“Those two ‘G3’ tours will take me to the spring of next year, believe it or not, so we won’t be able to get something going until some point next year and then we’ll have a release the following year.

But we kind of already know the direction of what we wanna do. We’re really excited. Yeah, but it won’t be for a while yet.”

We can expect that Dream Theater will release a new album in 2019. He also talked about musical tendency of Dream Theater’s next album:

“I think that reconnecting with the music from the era that we’re playing now and kind of where our headspace was in the early ’90s and everything, it’s kind of, I guess, for lack of a better word, reconnected us with the musical style of that period of Dream Theater.

So it’s been really interesting talking about how we’re gonna approach the next record and everything. So, yeah, we’re psyched.
