DREAM THEATER's JOHN PETRUCCI Will 'Definitely' Record Another Solo Album

Metal Wani's editor in chief Owais "Vitek" Nabi recently conducted an interview with with DREAM THEATER mastermind John Petrucci. You can now listen to the chat below.

Asked if he has plans to ever release another solo album, Petrucci said: "Yeah, definitely. I did 'Suspended Animation' back in 2005, I believe. It's been so long since I've done one. And it's probably the number one question I get asked personally, whether I'm [gonna release another] solo album. And the answer is yes, it's just a matter of finding the time. I know that sounds like a lame excuse. I actually have the music written. I've actually played a few of the songs on the 'G3' tour I did a few years ago in South America with Joe Satriani and Steve Morse. It's a matter of me stepping away from the schedule of DREAM THEATER and getting into the studio and recording the songs. So it's definitely going to happen."

DREAM THEATER is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its milestone RIAA-gold-certified album "Images And Words" on a European tour, which kicked off on January 30 in Rome, Italy. Each performance sees the iconic progressive rock band delivering an unparalleled live set of "Images And Words" in its entirety along with fan favorites from their renowned catalogue.

DREAM THEATER recently completed the second leg of its extensive North American headline tour which found the group performing its widely acclaimed double concept album "The Astonishing" in immersive and interactive settings for a unique and unmatched live experience.
