Dream Theater fans don’t just have their new album, Distance Over Time, to look forward to. The prog metal band’s keyboardist, Jordan Rudess, has just announced a new solo album that’ll be out in April.
The record, titled Wired for Madness, promises multi-part epics and tracks that hit the ten- and 20-minute marks—all par for Dream Theater’s course. But there’s apparently also a blues song, “Just Can’t Win,” for which Rudess enlisted Joe Bonamassa and a full brass section. Other guests include James LaBrie and John Petrucci of Dream Theater, UFO guitarist Vinnie Moore, and drummer Marco Minnemann.
Wired for Madness is out April 19. Get a taste with “Wired for Madness Pt 1.3” below:
