Being I have the entire 25 year archive of every studio and live recording from 1985 to 2010 in my home, and being the band currently refuse to answer my emails or calls, I honestly cant see any upcoming releases...
it's been rumored for a few months that there's legal issues going on between you and DT. if that's the case, (again, i said rumored), i don't see how you would be so shocked when they aren't returning calls.
but MP still owns rights to the DT name and band and products, so as a business person he would need to contact his partners and make sure plans are still moving ahead for the business that is now DT.
MP has always informed his fans, and kept them in the loup.
Looks like DT's tight lipped nonsense is going to affect their business side of things as well.
More and more, I'm seeing some sad professionals decisions from DT since MP has been out of DT.
I feel like they are treating this too much like a business, and I feel this goes against how they've 'been' for the past 25 years.
Time really tells, that MP was the reason why Dream Theater had such a 'family' of fans, since he really did connect to the fans and keep them informed of stuff going on.
So far, all I see is MP still keeping busy and informing his fans of "What's soon to come" (giving us a great reason to be excited for his future projects).
DT, is only making us take their words on this one thing, and aren't doing much at keeping us around to want to care.
At this point, I'm caring less and less that DT keeps us fans so much in the dark. I'm not asking for the name of the new drummer, just let us know 'something', and now:"When the news comes out, you'll all freak".
THAT'S ALL THEY'VE BEEN SAYING, they are sounding like a broken record with nothing else exciting to tell. It as though,this new drummer IS the only exciting thing to look forward to on this album......which I hope is not the case.
In the end, I care what MP is up to because it sounds interesting, exciting, and he is keeping us up to date with things to be excited for.
DT is that person you wait for a phone call from, who said really like you.....and they just keep you waiting.
