American progressive metal veterans Dream Theater have announced that they will release their brand new, self-titled album through Roadrunner Records on September 24th. This will be their second record to feature drummer Mike Mangini, who replaced founding member, Mike Portnoy in 2011 and debuted with the band on their previous album, "A Dramatic Turn Of Events." Speaking on the new album, guitarist John Petrucci stated:

"I see every new album as an opportunity to start over. To either build or improve upon a direction that has been evolving over time or to completely break new ground. This is the first self-titled album of our career and there is nothing I can think of that makes a statement of musical and creative identity stronger than that. We’ve fully explored all of the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic. We’re incredibly excited about Dream Theater and can’t wait for everyone to hear it."

Dream Theater will be available in a wide range of distinctive versions, including standard and special edition CDs, 180 Gram Vinyl Double LP, and a Limited Edition Box Set. Pre-orders are scheduled to get underway sometime in July at the Roadrunner Records Webstore. A world tour in support of the album is currently being planned and details will be revealed shortly The band has also posted a short, "In Studio" video, which can be viewed below.
