might be making good progress
on their much-anticipated new album, but they're so busy that the release of their "Live at Luna Park
" concert video has been pushed back.
The video was set to appear in Spring on an array of Blu-ray, DVD and CD versions with various deluxe packages, but rather than release a sub-par product the band want to hold it back.
"Due to extenuating circumstances, the release date for 'Live at Luna Park' has been pushed back from its originally scheduled spring release,"
said the band in a statement (via Blabbermouth
). "In an effort to make this project as special as possible, and deliver the ultimate live experience for Dream Theater fans, these delays proved necessary. It will be abundantly clear why the extra time was needed come November."
The footage was shot over two nights in South America, and the band promise it will stun fans. "Between the hi-def and 3D video, the huge audio mix and the documentary-style behind-the-scenes footage, you are truly transported to the arena and completely immersed in the entire live experience,"
says guitarist John Petrucci
This week the band posted an album update to say they're on "the home stretch
" with vocal recordings complete and guitar solos midway. At this rate the album could launch before the DVD, with a projected late Summer release.
