Dream Theater tease The Astonishing

Dream Theater have released a teaser for their 13th album The Astonishing.

The follow-up to their 2013 self-titled record is out on January 29 and is described as “a sonic story that is our most ambitious creative work to date.”

View the trailer below.

They’ll kickstart a world tour in February with a pair of live dates at London’s Palladium. They’ll then head to mainland Europe before embarking on a North American run of shows in April and May.

The Astonishing is available for pre-order from the band’s label in a variety of bundle packs, including a deluxe box set.
