Apparently, JP's new album will finally come out this fall and it will be entitled Terminal Velocity!

The most recent G3, he had Larue and Mangini.  That seems like the most likely to me.

I'd be happy if it were them and I'd likely buy it instantly if it were them. (I always liked Dave Larue with Steve Morse and Mike as well, of course) Nonetheless, I'm equally (or probably more hehe) excited about DT15 and Mike's solo album

Any chance the drummer is a man with the last name of Portnoy?

Maybe, but maybe not. MP was the drummer in his band until he left DT, but he didn't play on Suspended Animation. IIRC, it was because JP wanted to keep his solo album separate from DT. So he was fine with having Dave LaRue on it, but not MP. I wouldn't be surprised if he opted to use Dave DiCenso again or another drummer, for the same reason.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

John always said he just needed to find the time to record it. I guess quarantine did the trick.

no, just Velocity actually (according to some interview with James and JP I can't source now (paging Scotty :D ), which IMHO might have been a good title as well, seeing as how quickly they wrote the album (18 days)

This is finally happening! All it took was 15 years and a global pandemic :lol
I would expect the band to be Petrucci/LaRue/Mangini, but you never know.

I'm really excited about this :metal :metal :metal

I know itís still very soon, but does anyone knows if itís all new material or stuff he already had(and has played live already)?

Would love to hear a studio version of Glassy Eyed Zombie or Wrath of the Amazons.

I'd bet we'll get studio versions of Cloud Ten/The Happy Song, Glassy-Eyed Zombies and Zero Tolerance. Wrath of the Amazons is a cover, so I'm not so sure it makes it into the album, but I'd love it. There's also a very old instrumental he used to play in the 90s called Gemini that I hope he does a proper version of, but I don't think it'll ever happen :lol

Not sure about Wrath of the Amazons, but I would imagine everything else will probably be on the album. As I mentioned in the thread in the general music discussion part of the forum, JP even included Lost Without You on Suspended Animation, which was originally a piece he used as his guitar spot during DT's tour in 1995. Also, the album featured all 4 of the originals he had been performing on G3 tours since 2001. So it's a pretty safe bet that all the originals will probably appear on TV.

I would love Wrath to be on there.  But I have no idea whether he could (or wants to) jump through the hoops to get whatever permission he needs.

Everyone knows i'm not the biggest Portnoy fanboy but it would be cool to have him drum on the new Petrucci album. I do miss his playing in DT. Just not his personality.

HOWEVER I wouldn't want all the MP fans claiming how it "proves" MP is "obviously" coming back to DT.

So for that reason - I hope it's not :)

Yeah! That guy has uploaded a lot of great JP covers :metal

Btw, Bosk or any of the mods, could you please combine both threads into one? It's a bit confusing to have two threads about the same thing :laugh:

My guess is that the title is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the 'kill yourself' meme born of Rock Discipline.

I wouldn't be surprised if he opted to use Dave DiCenso again

Would be cool. DiCenso is a phenomenal drummer (just listen to Hiromi's debut or watch that insane YouTube video of him going off at a Two Ton Shoe gig). Though he played like he was told to just mimic the programmed drums from the demo tracks on Suspended Animation. If JP works with him again, I sure hope he lets him off the leash a bit more.

Distance Over Time was released on February 22nd 2019.

By the time Terminal Velocity comes out it'll be 18 months ago.

My guess for the DT15 timeline is this :

October 2020 ish : Terminal Velocity

April / May 2021  - DT get together at DT HQ to start writing / recording DT15

June - Album is tracked. July - Album is mastered and promo begins.

September 2021 : DT15.

First thing that came to mind when I saw the title was Suspended Animation, it just has the same vibe and ring to it, for me.
