DREAM THEATER - BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS - Coming June 23rd! Thursday, March 12, 2009 10:32 PM (permalink)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 13, 2009
 
New York, NY:
 
Progressive metal veterans DREAM THEATER have announced BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS as the title of their tenth studio album.  The band commenced work on the album – their second for Roadrunner Records, following up 2007's Systematic Chaos — in October of last year.
 
Roadrunner will release the record on June 23. In addition to the standard version CD, the album will also be available on vinyl LP, as well as a 3-disc Special Edition CD that will include the full album, a CD of instrumental mixes of the album and a CD of six cover songs, the titles of which will be revealed at a later date.
 
Six weeks prior to the June 23 street date, Roadrunner will release one cover song per week through digital retailers.
 
Drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci are once again at the helm as producers, while Paul Northfield mixed the record.
 
The band will embark on a world tour in support of the album beginning in Europe throughout June which will be followed by the second edition of the band’s PROGRESSIVE NATION tour featuring Zappa Plays Zappa, Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish throughout North America in July/August.
 
A video for the first single, "A Rite of Passage" will be shot in late March.
 
The track listing for BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS is as follows:
 
1. A Nightmare to Remember
2. A Rite of Passage
3. Wither
4. The Shattered Fortress
5. The Best of Times
6. The Count of Tuscany

          I'm loving the album art. Totally reminiscent of Awake.
          It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and... uh, ruin a stupid anecdote. I think that's how it goes...

            I just exploded

            I wonder if it will be track lengths like Train of Thought, since there are only 6 songs

                          Fuck Yes!!!!!!! I am really excited for this, but the only problem will be waiting for a few more months! And another thing is if there are only 6 songs, how long are they? Cause the longer they are, the better! June cannot come soon enough. The only way this could get any better is if they announce a MN date for PN09...

                                              Yay, it's my birthday today too. I totally spaced out and forgot to add that in my first post in the thread.
                                              It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and... uh, ruin a stupid anecdote. I think that's how it goes...

                                                      Kinda odd song titles, wich indicate we are still in the realm of fantasy lyrics I guess.  I love the album title though, conjures up interesting images and the artwork works in that direction.

                                                              Yeah baby yeah!  Another masterpiece awaits us!  The album cover rules, the tracklisting rules, and six songs???  This is going to rule.  I don't want time to go any faster, but June 23rd cannot come soon enough.

                                                                      I watched The Number 23 like, 20 minutes ago. I check the forum and, who would guess it?

                                                                      New album on June 23!!!

I remember the stress when I read that the 5 disc edition was "limited"
