Dream Theater are preparing to release their ninth live album this autumn. Distant Memories – Live In London, out on November 27, was recorded during their February 2020 show at London's Hammersmith Apollo. The release contains material from last year's Distance Over Time as well as their seminal concept album Metropolis Part 2 – Scenes From A Memory.

Says guitarist John Petrucci, “Whether you had a chance to see this tour in person and want to relive what was hopefully an awesome concert experience or enjoying the performance on video for the first time, Distant Memories – Live In London very accurately and very beautifully captures the energy and excitement we all felt together at the Apollo this past February.”

Distant Memories – Live In London is Dream Theater's first live album since 2014’s Breaking The Fourth Wall. The new release will be available as a 3-CD and 2 DVD multibox, a 3-CD and 2 Blu-Ray digipak with slipcase, a limited deluxe 3-CD + 2 Blu-Ray + 2 DVD Artbook and a limited 4-LP and 3-CD box set. The video components will also feature a Behind The Scenes look at the band as they get ready for the shows. All formats of Distant Memories – Live In London are now available to pre-order.
