Dream Theater take a journey into the future with striking Paralyzed video

Dream Theater

Dream Theater have released an animated video for their new single Paralyzed.

The song will feature on the band’s upcoming album Distance Over Time, which will launch on February 22 via InsideOut Music.

Dream Theater previously revealed the tracks Untethered Angel and Fall Into The Light (opens in new tab) from the follow-up to 2016’s The Astonishing.

Speaking about Paralyzed, guitarist John Petrucci – who also produced the album – says: “The song is an introspective reflection on the negative impact that being obstinate or single-minded can have on important relationships.”

Distance Over Time was mixed by Ben Grosse, mastered by Tom Baker, while the cover art was created by Hugh Syme.

Dream Theater will head out on tour across North America from March and have confirmed a run of European dates (opens in new tab), which includes sets at the UK’s Download festival, Hellfest Open Air and Warsaw’s Prog In The Park.
