Dream Theater has announced a new album called A View from the Top of the World.

The 15th studio effort from the prog metallers will arrive October 22. It consists of seven songs — the title track, which closes the album, is over 20 minutes long.

“We just love to play our instruments,” says guitarist John Petrucci. “That never goes away. I love to be creative, write, and exercise that part of my mind. We’ve been able to do this for a long time, and we don’t take it for granted. Whenever we get together, we know we can’t disappoint ourselves or our fans, so we manage to try even harder.”

Dream Theater will launch a tour in support of A View beginning October 28 in Mesa, Arizona. For ticket info and the full list of dates, visit DreamTheater.net.
