DREAM THEATER in the Studio, Using Eight String Guitars

Looks like it's finally happening!

Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci originally said he hoped to use an eight string guitar on the band's 2019 album Distance Over Time, but that never happened. Then in a recent interview, Petrucci revealed he was working on his own signature eight string guitar that "ready in some form, even if it's a prototype, for me to be able to use on the next Dream Theater album."

Now, according to a photo posted by Dream Theater, it seems as though Petrucci will indeed be using that low F# string for some crushing riffs on the new record. In the meantime, go grab Dream Theater's new holiday medley "The Holiday Spirit Carries On" via Bandcamp for $2.99. All proceeds will be donated to the band's currently-out-of-work road crew.
