Roadrunner Records group Dream Theater have shared a new video of “Strange Deja Vu” (Live From The Boston Opera House) which will be featured on the Grammy-nominated progressive metal titans forthcoming live Blu-Ray / DVD set titled, BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE). The collection, which captures the band’s one-of-a-kind performance from the Boston Opera House on March 25, 2014, was produced by the band’s own John Petrucci, filmed and directed by Pierre and François Lamoureux, and mixed and mastered by Richard Chycki. BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE) is over 2 hours in length, capturing the special evening, which featured guest performances from The Berklee College of Music Orchestra and Choir. BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE) arrives September 30TH.
The collection is currently available in multiple configurations including Blu-Ray, a 2 DVD set, and a webstore deluxe exclusive Blu-Ray/3 CD set with poster, all currently available for pre-order via the Roadrunner Records webstore. Earlier this year Dream Theater release a video of “The Looking Glass” (LIVE) taken from BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL (LIVE FROM THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE) which can be streamed on the band’s official YouTube Channel. All pre-orders for the webstore exclusive will receive an instant download of “The Looking Glass” (LIVE).
This past year DREAM THEATER earned a second Grammy nomination for “Best Metal Performance” for the single “The Enemy Inside” from their current self-titled worldwide smash album (released September 24, 2013 on Roadrunner Records). “DREAM THEATER” made a spectacular debut this past fall, topping Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart while simultaneously entering at #7 on the overall Billboard 200. The extraordinary chart position marked the group’s third consecutive top 10 debut, and also saw "DREAM THEATER" making top 5 chart debuts in Japan, Germany, Italy, Canada, Argentina, Switzerland, Holland, and Finland, as well as top 10 debuts in Denmark, Austria, and Norway, with career high debuts in the United Kingdom and Australia. The band recently announced new tour dates which will see them bring their spectacular live show to South America, Asia and Australia later this fall.
