Can't wait! I'd recommend putting the date (Dec 7th) on the thread title, otherwise people will think it's out right now. Unless that's the point? :D

Ah yes... my favorite part of an album cycle!  Looking forward to it!

And do I see Tesseract and AAL with them overseas (I assume that's a festival)... man I'd like to see that bill.

This is wonderful news. Tomorrow we'll hear the first full song from the new album.

Maybe we'll find out what the true "sound" of the album is, depending on how they upload it.

In all seriousness, why is this even remotely acceptable by DT. I mean, I like the art, but its obvious it was ripped off. Why hire Hugh Syme to do the art if he's not going to do something original?

Because, Rush, worked with Hugh Syme.
Someone, please, tell Dream Theater that they don't have to work with people who worked with Rush. There are other people out there.

There is lots of young artists who can do it better and probably cheaper and most certainly original. Not that I don't like the cover though.

Got to say, you are all ruining the joy of a new release.  I saw the picture and though is was so cool.  Now everybody has to search out if it was something similar.

I could give a rat's ass about that.  It looks great.

First listen to the song - it’s ok. Lots of similarities to previous songs. Underwhelmed by the melody. Instruments are fine.

Hugh Syme is a lazy fucker. As soon as I saw the artwork I knew it wouldn’t take long to find. Tothink hecreated my favourite cover of all time (Grace Under Pressure).

There are trends everywhere and so in cover artworks. Not sure if using stock images can be called a trend, but they're avalaible, it's a thing and I guess some artists simply use it.

Think of the Orange / Blue contrast for example, or the trick used by Felipe Machado on many of his cover artworks... everyone (well, maybe not everyone) has their "thing" and Syme's thing is probably using a library of stock images.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Stuff like singles and album release day is like Christmas.  People should not ruin Christmas for Little Timmy.

I like Permanent Waves and FBN as my fav Rush album covers,  followed closely by Signals.
Back on track, I do like the artwork to the new DT single even though it's derived from a stock image.

Sure but they've kind of brought it on themselves. It doesn't stop me thinking the artwork (both for the album and the single) looks great, but I do find it funny how quickly and easily people can find the stock images Syme uses. And it's still all irrelevant to the question of whether the music is good.

It's a shame if it ruins the joy of a new release for you, but for me it makes no difference and if anything I find it fairly entertaining.

Finding stock image is ridiculously easy because there exists search engines that literally specialises in that sort of thing, like TinEye. Put in an image in there, and you'll find other places it's been used. So people know DT uses stock images, and they put it in the search engine and finds other results  containing the pieces :P It's been happening since Octavarium :P
There will be a reckoning.
