JORDAN RUDESS: New DREAM THEATER Album is “a Little Bit on the Heavier Side”

DREAM THEATER Sign Record Deal with InsideOut Music

Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess shared an update regarding the follow-up to 2016′s The Astonishing, telling Metal Wani:

I think that we’re interested to just put our heads together and find something that we feel is really representative of who we are. I think maybe a little bit on the heavier side, certainly nothing like a concept album since we already did ‘The Astonishing’ thing.

We had a lot of fun and it was a wonderful creative project. Now I think maybe returning a little bit more to the roots, and that probably involves a little bit of a harder approach to the sound, but never losing sight to the melody.

Dream Theater is Dream Theater, it’s always a stylistic blend of a lot of different things. But all I can say about it at this point is we kind of want to figure out what the core of who we are and what the music is and just kind of present that.

Is there any play for Liquid Tension Experiment to come back and do some record?

There’s no plan for it, but you never know in life what’s gonna happen.
