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.

Yep, I'm sure that'll all come in due course. They're still writing/recording.

I'm not expecting much news until May or even early June. It'd be awesome if they announced something in mid-late April.

I am thinking they're keeping tight lipped until they do a huge announcement. This would be the title of the new album, artwork, song titles, and tour dates.

Most bands record albums in private, no?

Yeah...I guess I'm just a "let me know when I can buy it" kind of guy.  I got sucked in when they did that weird game with DOT and was somewhat intrigued by the rebels v. Empire stuff for TA, and I'm sure I saw some stuff on MP.com leading up to the releases of SC through DT 12, but none of what's going on looks all that unusual to me.  "Dragged out silence and secrecy"??   :lol

I think they're wise for keeping silent right now. Just focus on recording a great album without distractions. Don't take the turkey out of the oven until it's fully cooked. 😁

DT16 should be titled "Turkey Out of the Oven" ;D

I just want to know what happened with the LNFA releases.
Ummmm....they stopped.   :biggrin:
 
 
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.
They really haven't been open about the writing and recording of any album since FII. That was the last time there was any real info shared with the fan base long before a press release was made announcing all the details. Beginning with SFaM they've remained pretty secretive.
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.

It is still too early. It will come when the time is right. We are lucky to get any news, updates, and pictures. Go listen to some old DT or other stuff, the time will come soon :)

I don't know what you think they're keeping secret, but the release date and album title likely won't be known, even by the band, until the album is (nearly) finished.

But why? :P :lol
Because!  :biggrin:

No clue, but it could be for any number of reasons. The most obvious one would be that they want to focus on the new album and don't want to be distracted by other things. But I could also imagine that there could be some question as to how to go forward with the packaging since MP was the one who steered that ship before he left; not only did he provide the archive, but also the creative aspects of how it was presented. Or there could be some other unknown reason we don't know of.

It's wonderful to see the excitement of the members themselves, about this next album coming up. I really got a feeling it could turn out to be one of the very greatest. Darn... each pic makes me longing more for the first single.

With TransAtlantic Portnoy did a most bizar thing to release the same album in three different versions... And I really got the feeling he might be suggesting something even absurd here in Dream Theater-land. Not doing the same thing, but there is something special around the whole vibe of this release. Can't wait. Just can't wait.

Nope! I want James screaming his head off and MP playing as fast as humanly possible. I want JP playing almost exclusively in open C and I want Jordan to focus on soundscapes.

Good thing is that JM can continue to be in the background and it won't make an impact.

DT needs to go the opposite direction of SYL. ADTOE had the perfect amount of metal, maybe DT12 as well.

Incorrect. If there is anything other than incoherent screaming on the new album or any song that has a even a hint of a clean tone, I'll violently protest it.
