As you all know by now, the new album will be called The Astonishing. Please post all new album-related info in this thread.
Please DO NOT post anything that has not been officially released by the band or the label. If you are not sure, ask a mod or me before posting. Anyone posting unauthorized information, regardless of the source, will be banned until at least the release date--no exceptions.
Unfortunately, while I was away for several hours earlier today, there was some unauthorized information posted in the other thread, and there have been several pages of discussion since then, some of it related, and some of it not, that I do not have the time to wade through. Because of that, I have to delete that thread. Please feel free to re-post any and all relevant information (as long is it follows the forum rules, including the ban on leaded information). Thank you all for your understanding.
(EDIT by ariich, 13 Nov: This includes even POTENTIAL LEAKS. In the run up to album release, jokers always put fake leaks up online, some more obvious than others. From now on, these will be treated the same as real leaks. It's really quite simple - wait for official announcements/releases.)
Now let the discussion, the excitement, and the Astonishing continue... http://www.dreamtheater.net/theastonishing
