Today Dream Theater has announced that they will be entering the studio in February to start recording new track for a late 2015 album release. This will be a follow up to their 2013 album "Dream Theater" which sold around 34,000 copies in the United States alone.
Dream Theaters keyboardist Jordan Rudess had this comment last year:
We haven't really gotten into serious band discussions about what's gonna happen next, although we've had little discussions between some of us about what we would like to see happen next. At the same, if I get a good idea in the middle of the night, or whatever, I'll record it onto my iPhone. I elected James [LaBrie, vocals] to kind of be the keeper of some of my ideas; I'll send him little YouTube clips of me playing something I think is cool. And then when it wraps around and we get into writing again and start our process, then we'll go back an see what we've got and kind of figure it out.
Apparently they must have got things figured out because fans for Dream Theater are ready to hear the new stuff.
