Dream Theater Post New Video for 8-String Guitar Song, “Awaken the Master”


Dream Theater have posted a new music video for the song “Awaken the Monster” from their recently released album, A View From The Top Of The World.

The track sees John Petrucci don an eight-string guitar for the first time in Dream Theater lore, an indulgence he teased in the album’s lead-up that got fans all hot and bothered. The video was directed by Wayne Joyner and features some nifty animated/CGI imagery that’ll look awesome up on the video screens when the band performs the track live.

Dream Theater recently announced the postponement of their fall run due to Covid-19 concerns, although opinion on whether to do so was split within the band. New dates have yet to be announced but should take place in early 2022.

 A View From the Top of the World came out last Friday, October 22. Order it here.
