The members of veteran prog-rock band Dream Theater have re-signed with Roadrunner Records. The announcement comes fresh off the heels of the band’s 2011 release, A Dramatic Turn of Events and supporting world tour—James Labrie (Vocals), Mike Mangini (drums), John Petrucci (guitars), John Myung (Bass) and Jordan Rudess (keyboards). The band released a statement regarding the re-signing. “We are all very excited to be re-signing with Roadrunner Records! Over the past 5 years, from the release of Systematic Chaos to our latest, A Dramatic Turn of Events, we’ve developed strong creative and professional bonds with everyone at Roadrunner as well as many great friendships along the way”, the band collectively noted.
The band expanded on those relationships with Roadrunner Records, stating, “Roadrunner’s commitment and dedication to Dream Theater has been evident to all of us from the very beginning, and is consistent in all departments and on all levels, right on through to the top. Roadrunner is a record label that is not only great at what they do but who truly understand what Dream theater is all about as well as the amazing people who support us all around the world whom we proudly call our fans. They are a record company we relate to as an organization firmly rooted in its ideals and mission, while always pushing the envelope in an effort to keep things moving ever forward. We’ve reached many career defining milestones while at Roadrunner and are all incredibly pumped in anticipation of our continued future together.”
