DREAM THEATER Releases Animated Video For "Barstool Warrior"

Subscribe to Metal Injection on

Dream Theater will soon hit the road to play their 1999 classic Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory in full alongside some select tracks from their discography. Leading up to those dates, Dream Theater would like to remind you about their kickass new record Distance Over Time. Specifically with an animated video for the track "Barstool Warrior".

“‘Barstool Warrior‘ is a fictional tale about two characters, unrelated but connected in their lament over being stuck in dead end situations. The first is a local townie, alcoholic who never escaped the humdrum of his sleepy, maritime village.

The second, a woman trapped in an abusive relationship trying to survive from day to day while questioning what makes her stay. Both are able to reimagine their lives and find the courage to embrace a better future by embodying the person they dream of being.”

Seriously, if you haven't checked out Distance Over Time yet, do it. It's by far one of their most consistent and best records.
