James LaBrie Reveals First Song From New Album "Impermanent Resonance"

Dream Theater’s Jame LaBrie is back with a powerful new studio album effort entitled "Impermanent Resonance," to be released on July 29th, 2013 in Europe and August 6th, 2013 in North America via InsideOutMusic.

The new album’s dynamic opening track, “Agony”, is now available for streaming at Metalhammer.co.uk or in the player below. James LaBrie comments about “Agony” as follows:

"I am completely over the top with 'Impermanent Resonance' and here is its first single, ‘Agony’. I am more than sure that you will be banging your head and your blood will be coursing through you like jet fuel. As far as I am concerned this is only a teaser to 11 other tracks that will take you for a dynamic and emotional ride. Crank this song and Raaaaaaaawk!”

Matt Guillory, LaBrie’s songwriting partner for over a dozen years now and keyboardist / background vocalist on “Impermanent Resonance” also adds:

“Stylistically, I think ‘Agony’ is an interesting blend of melodic death metal and pop - from the riffing and blast beats interspersed in the intro, to where it really opens up melodically in the chorus. I like the pop-influenced interplay of the lead vocal and the keyboards that occur in the verse and chorus. This was a real fun collaboration with Peter Wichers. It's got a little bit of everything.”

Next to James LaBrie and Matt Guillory, the line-up also features Marco Sfogli from Italy on guitar, Ray Riendeau (Halford, Machines of Loving Grace) on bass, and Dream Theater audition finalist Peter Wildoer (Darkane, Majestic, Arch Enemy, etc.) from Sweden on drums, making it the same line-up for the group as on the previous album “Static Impulse” from 2010. Furthermore, former Soilwork guitarist Peter Wichers was also added to the fold for songwriting and guitar recording contributions.
