Liquid Tension Experiment is now streaming their upbeat new single "Beating the Odds" off their first new album in 22 years LTE3.
“'Beating The Odds' is the 2nd song we wrote in the LTE3 sessions," said drummer Mike Portnoy. "I jokingly referred to it as 'the feel-good song of the Pandemic' in the studio as it has a very upbeat happy feel to it…but also takes a few cool musical twists & turns ranging from the glorious melodic chorus & end vamp to the dark driving solo sections."
"I remember the look of confusion on ALL our faces when JP started playing that opening riff!" added keyboardist Jordan Rudess. "It’s was seemingly so straight ahead but with a bizarre rhythmic twist! Took a while to internalize that but then we all loved it! One of the great things about LTE is the fact that we just let ourselves loose and have FUN!"
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.
