Dream Theater Release New Song “The Alien”
Dream Theater have released “The Alien,” the first single from their forthcoming album, A View From the Top of the World. For about two minutes, it is absolutely AWESOME.
Then James LaBrie starts singing and it’s all downhill from there.
Still, I think “The Alien” is at least the second-best metal or hard rock song with the word “alien” in the title that I can think of off the top of my head without very much effort.
You can check it out via the below music video.
A View From the Top of the World is out October 22. Pre-order it here.
