LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT and DREAM THEATER members press release for an upcoming and new album “LTE3”:
John Petrucci stated:
“After over 20 years since the last time we recorded together, the four of us stepped into the studio and it was as if no time had passed at all! All of the magic that made the first two LTE albums so special was still there. And we had such a great time making this record.
I’m extremely proud of what we created together and can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”
Mike Portnoy also added:
“‘The Passage Of Time’ was the very first song we composed together when we reunited this past summer. It was so exciting to be back in a room creating together again after so long. This serves as a great first taste for the listeners as it combines so many of the musical elements that make LTE unique.”
Jordan Rudess also talked about this upcoming album:
“There is an undeniable chemistry that happens when the four of us are together. Entering the studio and starting work on ‘The Passage Of Time’ after 22 years literally gave me a whole new perspective on these important musical relationships and the way time is so relative. We just jumped right in — it was like no time had passed at all. We created a song that has so many of the elements that make LTE unique.
“Not a day has gone by since our last release when I wasn’t asked, ‘When is LTE getting back together again?’ Now we can finally deliver, and I can’t wait for everybody to hear our creation.”
