Band
To Embark on The Distance Over Time Tour

of North America Beginning March 2019

Two-time Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans Dream Theaterhave released the first song from their recently announced 14thstudio album, Distance Over Time. “Untethered Angel” is the first newsong from the album slated for worldwide release on February 22, 2019. The newsingle is quintessential Dream Theater and takes the listener on a musicaljourney that cements the band’s place as the premier progressive metal bandaround today. Watchthe video for “Untethered Angel” here: https://youtu.be/gylxuO6dKOw.

“During
the writing and recording process of D/T, ‘Untethered Angel’ was known as ‘Song
4’ to all of us as it was the 4th song written during the sessions. However,
there has always been something about this track that just begged for it to be
the album opener, even long before all of the songs were written,” explains
John Petrucci. “Fear is something that rears its ugly head at some point or
another in all of our lives. Fear of the unknown, fear of taking chances, fear
of making mistakes. If we are not careful, it can be debilitating and sadly
prevent us from realizing our true potential. The world we live in can be a
scary place and the thought of an uncertain future a terrifying notion,
especially for today’s young people. Untethering from that fear and giving
yourself up to the future’s countless possibilities is what will ultimately set
you free.’”

Distance
Over Time
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 long-time 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. The latest addition to

In
June 2018, Dream Theater 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 &
extremely productive period of group 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.

Dream Theater is also planning to hit the road
in support of the new album. The Distance Over Time Tour of
North America was recently announced and kicks off on March 20, 2019 in San
Diego, CA. The tour will run for seven weeks before wrapping up in Mexico City
on May 4, 2019.
