JOHN PETRUCCI: There Will Be No New DREAM THEATER Album Before 2019

JOHN PETRUCCI: "I Have a Lot of Material" For New Solo Album

Dream Theater‘s John Petrucci shared an update on the status of The Astonishing¬†follow-up, saying on Trunk Nation:

Those two G3 tours [in Europe and the United States] 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.

Asked about any “hints” and “nuggets” he could share regarding the band’s upcoming musical direction, John replied:

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.
