John Petrucci releases single

2020-08-08 by OmairSh | 24 Comments
John Petrucci, of Dream Theater fame, has released a music video for the title track off his upcoming solo instrumental album Terminal Velocity which is set for an August 28th release date.

This is John's second solo album after 2005's Suspended Animation and sees the same rhythm section return; with Dave LaRue laying down the bass, and a much awaited reunion with former bandmate Mike Portnoy for the first time in 10 years, who plays drums on the entire album.

The video can be seen here:

So glad this has good production (thanks Portnoy I guess?). Really reminds me of anime music, love the vibe

Definitely feels like Crush 40 went prog.
Surprisingly good. Definitely better and more fun than anything DT has done in recent memory.

Nothing revolutionary but I've been enjoying this a bit since yesterday. Wish the production was less dull tbh but the song is fun at least

Petrucci seems more playful on his solo stuff, and the Petrucci - Portnoy chemistry is instantly apparent

Digging: Elliott Smith - Elliott Smith

Omg I can't wait to listen to this. Glasgow kiss is one of my favourite solo guitar songs ever and I couldn't even tell you why

A lot of the stuff from his last solo album reminds me of video game music and this is no different. I love it.

I don't even follow Petrucci's work, but you guys are tempting me.

I loved his first solo album a lot in high school, Glasgow Kiss was such a great song. Looking forward to this album

And so good to hear him play with Portnoy again

I'll take this over newer dream theater any day of the week. Petrucci's last album was great and I'm really looking forward to this one.

I wasn't aware he had any solo stuff, but this song is pretty good.

Petrucci and Portnoy were born to play together

Even Portnoy's playing feels invigorated

Corny af but better than recent DT at least. Probably a 3. Portnoy sounds really solid here though.
