Two-time Grammy-nominated and million-selling progressive music titans Dream Theater announce the forthcoming worldwide release of their 14th studio album, "Distance Over Time". The album showcases a newfound creativity for Dream Theater while maintaining the elements that have garnered them devoted fans around the globe. The album also marks the first for the band's new label InsideOutMusic (Sony Music). The artwork was created by longtime cover collaborator Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour). "Distance Over Time" was produced by John Petrucci, mixed by Ben Grosse and mastered by Tom Baker. "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”, explains John Petrucci. In June 2018, the Dream Theater members secluded themselves in a private location in upstate New York to begin writing for the new record. While spending the summer living together in the property’s adjacent residence, the band spent their days and nights crafting the music that would make up the new album in the Yonderbarn, a beautiful and spacious barn that had been meticulously transformed into a state-of-the art film and recording studio. Following an intense and extremely productive period of band writing sessions and wanting to retain the magic that was captured in this scenic and inspiring location, they decided to record the album in the very room they had all convened to write together in. Living together during the writing and recording for "Distance Over Time" marked another first for the band's 33-year career. The result is a heavier collection of songs that showcases the early roots of the band while exploring new territory as musicians and as friends. "It was like going back to summer camp", adds James LaBrie. "Being around each other the whole time made it that much more of a profound experience. I think the songs reflect the energy. It was a lot of fun to have a situation so powerful at this point in our career." Source: Dream Theater
