There is a palpable excitement level surrounding two-time Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans, Dream Theater, and their upcoming 14th studio album, Distance Over Time, out on February 22nd via InsideOut Music.
In the new video below, John Petrucci and Mike Mangini discuss the album track, “Paralyzed”:
“Paralyzed” is quintessential Dream Theater; a song that showcases the band’s unique ability to write memorable melodies backed with unique song structures and maestro-level musicianship all at a radio-friendly running time of 4:18. The song will be impacting Active Rock and Metal radio later this month. Wayne Joyner, who also imagined the clip for “Fall Into The Light,” created the animated video for the song, which can be seen below.
“The song is an introspective reflection on the negative impact that being obstinate or single-minded can have on important relationships,” explains guitarist John Petrucci.
