Dream Theater intends to start recording their new album in late 2023, reveals guitarist John Petrucci in an interview on “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk”.
When asked about the band’s 2023 plans, Petrucci replied:
“Dream Theater is gonna continue touring in 2023. Just like everybody else, we were shut down for two years and have a lot of catching up to do. We’re supporting ‘A View From The Top Of The World’. We’ve done extensive tours of U.S. and Europe, but even… We played two shows only in Asia; we played, like, four shows in South America. There’s a lot more ground to cover. So 2023 is gonna be filled with Dream Theater touring; I’m certain of that.”
When asked if the band is working on new music, the guitarist said:
“We’re still working the last record. I can’t see us being back in the studio until roughly this time next year. If you kind of just look forward to next year, you see the way it’s gonna lay out, and we’ve got festivals. Before you know it, it’s August. There’s not gonna be any studio work done before the fall; I highly doubt it. So a new record wouldn’t be [released before] the following year.”
