The show was the first time Mars Hollow has performed live since May, 2012.

The album, also available on DVD, documented the band’s ‘Church of Prog’ spot at RosFest, 2011 and was released in Fall of 2012.

Dream Theater to enter studio in 2018 for ‘New Album'

Dream Theater to enter studio in 2018 for ‘New Album’

During the recent stay in Budapest, Dream Theater singer James LaBrie talked in recent interview.

The band is mostly focused on touring by the end of the year. LaBrie said:

“We do this tour for the rest of 2017 and in 2018 we’re gonna make a new album. And we’re pretty psyched because we’re already know what we’re gonna do. But I’m not gonna tell you. [laughs] It’s really important for us that the new album will be our best effort. It should be who we are at that particular moment. We still want to create something that’s better than what we did before. That’s what keeps you interested in what you do. But if along the way we feel that there is another album we should recognize once again, then we’ll do it.“
