Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie is to release his third solo album next month.
It’s called Impermanent Resonance and is out on July 29 through InsideOut Music. Once again, LaBrie has worked closely on the songwriting with keyboard player Matt Guillory; the pair have collaborated ever since the release of the Mullmuzzler album Keep It To Yourself in 1999. Former Soilwork guitarist Peter Wichers also helped out during the writing phase, as well as playing on the album.
Other musicians involved are guitarist Marco Sfogli, bassist Ray Riendeau (Machines Of Loving Grace, Halford) and drummer Peter Wildoer (Darkane, Soilwork). All three were also involved on LaBrie’s last solo album, 2010’s Static Impulse.
Says the singer of his latest album: “To me this album incorporates and continues with the styles and musical direction that we have created with the previous releases. The difference being that the music on this disc is a true telling of the songs evolving, and taking on a sense of identity that is every band’s ultimate goal. It is powerful, memorable, hook-driven and above all extremely musical. It shows how the writing and the band itself have matured. I truly feel that this is our quintessential album”.
