LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT (DREAM THEATER) Streams First New Song in 22 Years, "The Passage of Time"

It shreds so hard.

Liquid Tension Experiment is back with their first new single in 22 years, titled "The Passage of Time". The song pretty much picks up where the band left off in 1999, though there's certainly a renewed sense of energy and a ton of great melodies throughout!

"’The Passage of Time’ was the very first song we composed together when we reunited this past summer. It was so exciting to be back in a room creating together again after so long (22 years for all 4 of us and over 10 years for the 3 of us since being together in DT). This serves as a great first taste for the listeners as it combines so many of the musical elements that makes LTE unique," said drummer Mike Portnoy.

"This was the first song we worked on and when it was done, we all knew once again how amazing it was to be working together. We knew we were on to something and that this was going to be a really amazing album. Nothing about the passage of over two decades could’ve done anything to change that. To me this song truly reflects the collaborative songwriting efforts of all four of us," added guitarist John Petrucci.

As always, Liquid Tension Experiment is drummer Mike Portnoy (Transatlantic, Sons of Apollo, ex-Dream Theater), guitarist John Petrucci (Dream Theater), keyboardist Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), and bassist Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel).

Liquid Tension Experiment will release LTE3 on March 26. Pre-orders are available here.
