The album is a collaboration with French keyboardist/composer Viv Lalu. The album is targeted for release in late 2015.
The announcement reads:
"It is with great joy and honor that we announce the magical guitar power of MARCO SFOGLI in our team!
"Guitar player, composer and arranger, Marco needs normally no further introduction but for those of you who might not know, Marco has also been lending his sensational guitar sounds to James LaBrie (being also member of his solo band) and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Alex Argento, Virgil Donati, LALU and more!"
Elina commented: 'Being a James LaBrie fan myself, I listened to Marco's playing for the first time on the album 'Elements Of Persuasion' and I was blown away. I could never imagine that years later, I would meet Marco in Frankfurt, Germany at the legendary Musikmesse in March 2014. I watched his performance at the DV MARK booth with my producer Viv Lalu by my side and I told him right away 'I want to have him on my album! Such musicality and power! That's it!'

Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie has posted a statement online through his official website in regards to the cancellation of his U.S solo tour in support of his 2010 effort "Static Impulse." James LaBrie commented by saying:
"It is very difficult for what I am about to say. The 'Static Impulse' tour has been cancelled due to some unfortunate, unforeseen difficulties with securing work visas for a couple of the guys. It would be virtually impossible for us to have these visas processed on time to begin the tour let alone the rehearsals which were scheduled for the week prior to the first show.
"I don't know what to say other than we are all in shock and can only hope we can make this a reality at some point in the near future.
"I am really sorry to everyone who has gone out and purchased the meet-and-greets and show tickets. This totally sucks and I'm sure you're all quite upset and have every right to be. I can only ask for your understanding and forgiveness and assure you that when we are in a position (hopefully in the near future ) to tour all of this will have been taken care of well in advance or it just won't happen."

James LaBrie of Dream Theater has announced his new solo album "Static Impulse" is due out September 28th via InsideOut Music. You can now check out the new song "One More Time" via Noise Creep.
"Musically speaking, 'One More Time' is sort of a marriage of old-school progressive elements and modern melodic death metal," guitarist/keyboardist Matt Guillory told Noisecreep. "We wanted to have a drastic contrast between what's going on in the verses and what's going on in the choruses. There's almost a pop feel near the end where both James' vocals and my vocals start layering in different ways. Lyrically, the song is about dealing with the loss of a loved one."
