Maybe an epic that divides into 4 or 5 songs like SDOIT and an epic individual. Or MP just meant that another epic to add their epic catalogue.

I've read the Instagram post and from the context it seems that he's talking about another epic for the new album aside from one that they evidently have already written.

Come on, it's not out of the realm of possiblities that they write more than one long song.

But again, I'm not a native speaker so some nuances might be lost on me, but reading that message it implies, to me, "another epic beside another one already written".

I don't care what he meant by it.  I don't have to speculate, I will know once the album comes out.

Hey, I’m sure we have many album updates that JM is just dying to share with the world. Just as much as he wanted to share info of his new bass tone on the AVFTTOTW documentary 😂

Updated to include most recent information and corrections of some other bits

(note that Jordan will be on tour with The Dixie Dregs very soon, so he will again be absent at some point. We will see how the recording process will unfold. The Dregs are well worth checking out btw, in case anyone here hasn't heard of them yet)

Second, third and fourth on the Dregs.  I saw them from the front row at a small theater in CT a couple years ago and it was one of the most entertaining shows I've been to in a long time.  You've got to pay attention, because those fuckers can play, but there's a great spirit of camaraderie too, so it's not two hours of sheer wankery.  They well and truly like each other and have fun playing.

The Dregs tour will start in a little less than a month. I'd say there's plenty of time for them to finish writing, or even recording depending on how fast everything's going, by then. Unless they're making another double album...

A double album would not be outside the realm of possibility. Having not recorded together in over 14 years, they might have a lot of fresh ideas.

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.

They already did LTE 3, which kind of counts, but I guess it's not the same.

And JP's 2nd solo album before that. DT16 will be Mike and John's third album together of the past 4-5 years, and I'm glad they did those two before he rejoined because now I think their chemistry in the studio will be locked in and I imagine the new DT will be the best they could put together.

You're right! I completely forgot about TV. And LTE 3 also had Jordan, who's the main DT writer alongside JP, so they should already be quite comfortable writing together, as you just mentioned.

It's getting wearisome, isn't it? 🙄 All we can hope for is that it's worth all this dragged-out silence and secrecy.

Of course I've never been around for a new album release during a Portnoy era, so this may be more normal for many of you than it is for me.

Wellll as someone that was around since the six degrees release I’d say this isn’t too normal lol. Portnoy is usually very open with information during studio sessions. I think they may have something special in store for us this time around because it’s a reunion of sorts. Maybe a long documentary like the systematic chaos one? I think they just want to keep some things as a surprise for us. Going forward after this album I suspect more will be revealed faster.

As “silent” as it’s been about the details, even the screenshots and selfies we’ve been getting seem more frequent to me than they have been since MP left.

And it was always like this when MP was in the band. Lots of little snippets without giving anything away because he likes playing “Willy Wonka”…and I’m totally cool with that.

I think it was something along the lines of he understands they've been pretty quiet about everything. He also said separately they're not doing official interviews or whatever. I get it and I am cool with it. They're controlling the message and timing of something that is a pretty significant event in the band's history.

When we do get the unveiling I am expecting a lot more information about the songwriting process and more fan outreach than we have had the last 5 albums. I remember when they released ADTOE the band did a free meet & greet/signing and then when they released DoT they did a free screening and signing. I bet we get something like that this time as well.

Yeah, I can't really complain. We ARE getting updates from the studio. He even hints about writing epics. And when, anyway, did they gave away details, aside from the instrumental on Train of Thought because they created a contest about it? I don't remember them (or MP, since as you said it was always him to do PR for the band) saying "we wrote an epic" or "we wrote a song about vampires" in previous tour cycles.

Consider me satisfied with the level of information and updates we're getting.

Of course, but most bands today also release individual songs long before the album is released officially. I don't think we're anywhere near that point yet, and I'm not saying we need full on spoilers, but at the very least things along the lines of an expected release date (even if that's next year), or possibly a name? Just normal news, not vagueness. Maybe it's still too early.
