I wonder if this is Michael Keene's way of apologizing to everyone for taking four damn years to come out with The Faceless' Autotheism? Probably not, but I like to pretend it is. Keene has apparently been pretty open with people about his solo record and a faceless cover album recently, so Metal Insider got on him about it. Keene …

Progressive metal icons Dream Theater have started work on their new studio album! Their eleventh full-length effort will be the follow-up to 2011′s A Dramatic Turn Of Events, which was the band’s first release without drummer and founding member Mike Portnoy.

“So far it’s not very developed at all. We’re scheduled to go into the studio in January,”guitarist John Petrucci tells Metal Insider. We have a handful of ideas we compiled while we were on the road, and we have those archived. And since I got back from the road, and have had some time off, I’ve been spending more time compiling, writing and demoing some things. There are a bunch of seeds, a bunch of ideas, and a definite direction. Everybody is hired, the studio is locked, and the vision for the type of album has been talked about and secured. The only thing that’s not there is the main material, but we’ll go in January full force.”

“Before we go into an album, I like to sit down and think about what we’re going to do instead of just going in and winging it,” he adds. “I’ll usually come up with some sort of proposal, and we’ll talk about it a bunch of times over the course of the month, and get everyone on the same page. This way, people can start to think about musical ideas in that direction, and get in the right headspace. For me, it makes everything so much clearer when you’re in the studio. If you have a direction and a goal, you get better results.”

Expect that release to come at the end of the year via Roadrunner.
