FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York, NY:
 
Progressive metal veterans DREAM THEATER have announced BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS as the title of their tenth studio album.  The band commenced work on the album – their second for Roadrunner Records, following up 2007's Systematic Chaos — in October of last year.
 
Roadrunner will release the record on June 23. In addition to the standard version CD, the album will also be available on vinyl LP, as well as a 3-disc Special Edition CD that will include the full album, a CD of instrumental mixes of the album and a CD of six cover songs, the titles of which will be revealed at a later date.
 
Six weeks prior to the June 23 street date, Roadrunner will release one cover song per week through digital retailers.
 
Drummer Mike Portnoy and guitarist John Petrucci are once again at the helm as producers, while Paul Northfield mixed the record.
 
The band will embark on a world tour in support of the album beginning in Europe throughout June which will be followed by the second edition of the band’s PROGRESSIVE NATION tour featuring Zappa Plays Zappa, Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish throughout North America in July/August.
 
A video for the first single, "A Rite of Passage" will be shot in late March.
 
The track listing for BLACK CLOUDS & SILVER LININGS is as follows:
 
1. A Nightmare to Remember
2. A Rite of Passage
3. Wither
4. The Shattered Fortress
5. The Best of Times
6. The Count of Tuscany



Now kindly clean your drool on the way out.

Ask Frost* / Dear Dead Days = No Me No You?
« on: December 29, 2008, 01:11:11 PM »
I hear lots of talk here about "the family."

Dear Dead Days:

Welcome to the family.

No Me No You:

You disavow the family.

So what's the deal there?  And the way I see it, both songs involve two people: one who controls, and one who is controlled.  Dear Dead Days seems to be about someone who has made the narrator into his/her "property."  No Me No You sounds to me like the narrator from the original breaking away from whoever "owned" him or her, saying there's "No Me No You" any longer: just me.

Whatcha think?

Any Other Business / A prose piece I wrote based on a Frost* song
« on: November 23, 2008, 04:07:15 PM »
Read it and review please.  Just got finished writing it 10 minutes ago, so be nice. :)

By the way, I'm well aware it sounds slightly emo.  And some might misconstrue certain statements in that piece as critical of the song in question.  Let me be clear: this is not critical of any Frost* song in any way, shape or form.  Let's see how many of you can guess the song. ;)

Ask Frost* / Falling Down lyrics: Is it correct?
« on: November 20, 2008, 04:36:47 AM »
Life, it all became too much
It's easier to run
An early warning sign
Take arms and charge the line

Four reasons, I told you lies
Four reasons, why we won't touch eyes
Four reasons, unsatisfied
Four reasons, always there inside

I feel I'm falling down
I feel I'm falling down

There's nothing left here to say now
Falling down
Let's put our secrets away now
Falling down
Stop getting hope in the way now
Falling down
We'll lose it all any day now
Falling down
No meaning left in the sound now
Falling down
I'm giving back what I found now
Falling down
I'm heading back to the ground now
Falling down
Not getting up till I break down

Love, I cut a lonely soul
On shards of broken hearts
Outlines of those I lost
Take time and count the cost

Four reasons, I told you lies
Four reasons, why we won't touch eyes
Four reasons, unsatisfied
Four reasons, left me dead inside

I feel I'm falling down
I feel I'm falling down

Time will justify
Like birds must fall to fly





That sound about right?

Ask Frost* / The song that was scrapped
« on: November 17, 2008, 02:20:54 AM »
So I remember reading at the Cube about the song from the Frost* Reports (I can feel the world is turning) was scrapped.  Is there any hope of hearing it in the future?  I really rather loved that song.

Ask Frost* / Questions for Jem (exactly two)
« on: November 15, 2008, 06:24:42 PM »
First things first: I love the new album.  New Frost* favorites in the form of Welcome to Nowhere, Falling Down, and Dear Dead Days.  All of them so well-written, so perfectly executed.

Now then, to the questions:

1. Do you do any vocals on this album?  I thought I heard you on Wonderland and possibly elsewhere, but I can't be sure.  Dec's vocals are brilliant by the way, bring a totally new element to the Frost* sound! :D

2. Does the secret song at the end of Wonderland have a name?

Ask Frost* / In Frost* Report April C
« on: November 14, 2008, 02:15:03 AM »
At around 2:22 - 2:47, there is a lovely little number consisting of several "down down down"'s and "I said it's over"'s.  Is that Frost* or a pop band as enhanced by Mr. Godfrey?  If the latter, who is it and when can I expect to see it in stores?

Ask Frost* / Tomorrow's Twang Show

Any chance of it being in Toys later?  I think I'll be missing it, my morning classes to blame. :(

Ask Frost* / On Wedding Day as part of Milliontown....
« on: November 07, 2008, 08:08:46 PM »
Alert the press, the first serious topic!

If Wedding Day had been included on Milliontown, where would it have been in the track order?
