ABOUT DREAM THEATER:

Progressive metal pioneers Dream Theater share a unique bond with one of the most passionate fan bases around the globe as evidenced by their three GRAMMY® Award nominations, 2022 GRAMMY® Award win in the Best Metal Performance category for “The Alien” and 15 million records sold worldwide. The 1992 opus Images & Words received a gold certification and landed on Rolling Stone’s coveted “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All-Time.” Guitar World placed the follow-up Awake at #1 on “Superunknown: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1994.” 1996’s A Change of Seasons notably soundtracked NBC’s coverage of Downhill Skiing at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Fans voted the 1999 Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory the “Number One All-Time Progressive Rock Album” in a 2012 Rolling Stone poll. Not to mention, it ranked as the “15th Greatest Concept Album” by Classic Rock. 2009 saw Black Clouds & Silver Linings crash the Billboard Top 200 at #6 as A Dramatic Turn of Events [2011] and Dream Theater [2013] maintained a three-peat in the chart’s Top 10. Beyond three platinum and two gold videos, the group was also inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2010. Consequence of Sound dubbed 2016’s second concept album and sci-fi novel The Astonishing, “An absolutely unique experience” and it clinched the band their highest national album chart position yet in the UK (#11). In 2019, the band continued to expand its audience when they released Distance Over Time to critical and commercial acclaim. On their 15th full-length and second studio release for InsideOutMusic/Sony Music, A View From The Top Of The World, the band continued to challenge themselves and pushed their musical envelope – something they have done for over 30-years performing together. The band launched the inaugural DREAMSONIC Tour in 2023 – a traveling progressive music spectacle that will return for more runs in the future. In 2024, founding drummer Mike Portnoy reunited with the iconic lineup of guitarist John Petrucci, vocalist James LaBrie, bassist John Myung, and keyboardist Jordan Rudess to overwhelming fanfare. Dream Theater have recently been in the studio working on their upcoming 16th studio album and first for this lineup in over 15 years.

InsideOutMusic is the leading label worldwide for progressive music and is part of the Century Media Label Group, a division of Sony Music.
