LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT – LIVE BOX SET NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER

Originally, my intention was to record several shows and combine them to make one compilation CD/DVD release….but in reviewing the tapes, it became very obvious that the NYC and LA footage each offered very different perspectives of the shows we did…each with their own distinct personalities and both having their own charms (and flaws….)
 
The NYC show was very much a loud, sweaty, small club show (with alot of energy from the crowd) and the LA show was very much a more polished, breathing, theater experience (which offered a more relaxed «presentation»).
 
So in the end, I decided to simply offer both shows in their entirety…
It’s not often people will get to experience LTE Live, so why not offer you guys the chance to see and hear us in both settings….?
And even though the setlists are the same, you can hear some very subtle (and also some very obvious) differences from one performance to the next…

Liquid Trio Experiment 2 – When The Keyboard Breaks: Live In Chicago

2009 will see Ytsejam Records branch out with releases by select Dream Theater side projects on their new «Lazy Tomato Entertainment» label.
 
Coming this Spring will be the long awaited live CD and DVD releases by Liquid Tension Experiment.
 
But to whet your appetite until those titles are ready to go, we will launch Ytsejam’s side-project offspring with the release of the LIQUID TRIO EXPERIMENT 2 – «When The Keyboard Breaks: Live In Chicago» CD.
 
This is the infamous «jamarathon» which took place at LTE’s June 25th 2008 show in Chicago when Jordan Rudess’ keyboard broke down. Mike Portnoy, John Petrucci and Tony Levin proceeded to play and improvise almost 1 hour of insane musical madness to a stunned audience.
 
This was an unbelievably unique evening that can now be shared for those not fortunate enough to have been in attendance that very special night.

DTNorway Podcast

Hei!

Vi vet det er lenge siden vi har gitt dere noe nytt nå, og vi beklager det sterkt. Vi lover å komme sterkere tilbake nå, og kommer til å ha en ny fanzine, en ny kalender og mer smågodt fremover. Nå kommer vi også med en ny «feature» som vi skal forsøke å utvikle, og det er en DTNorway Podcast.

Den kan man finne på http://dtnorway.com/podcast.xml – Legg til i iTunes eller ditt favorittprogram. Her vil det følge intervju, musikkbiter og mer. Dette er vår første podcast, tatt litt på sparket, så kvaliteten er vel deretter. Men jeg er fornøyd, så jeg håper dere også blir fornøyde. Tar imot kritikk og forslag med takk. Om noen har lyst til å bidra med seksjoner i podcasten, så gjerne det! Om folk som er med i band på forumet har lyst til å delta, så kan vi arrangere en liten intervjuseksjon og noen smakebiter. Dette uansett størrelse på bandet (om dere er veletablert eller nystartede, om dere har publisert mange album eller fortsatt kun lager hjemmeopptak).

I allefall.

CHAOS IN MOTION 2007/2008 LIVE DVD

CLICK HERE TO VIEW TRAILER

CHAOS IN MOTION 2007/2008
LIVE DVD SETS TO BE RELEASED IN SEPTEMBER

DOCUMENTING 2007-2008 WORLD
TOUR

115 SHOWS, 105 CITIES, 35 COUNTRIES AND
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF FANS

New York, NY: Few bands inspire such fanaticism among their fans as Dream Theater. The best way to satiate this dedicated legion is to provide them with even more material to devour and Dream Theater are doing just that this September. The band will release Chaos In Motion 2007/2008, which documents their «Chaos In Motion» world tour, which kicked off June 3, 2007 at the Monsters of Rock Festival in Milan, Italy and concluded almost a year to the day later on June 4, 2008 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It’s essentially a travelogue of their most recent touring experience and it hits shelves on September 23. Chaos In Motion 2007/2008 will be available in two configurations: as a double DVD set and as five disc collector’s set which includes two DVDs and three CDs, containing 14 live tracks featured in the DVD set and expanded artwork.

The Chaos in Motion Tour was a trek that found the band traversing the globe, playing 115 shows in 105 cities in 35 countries on five continents to hundreds of thousands of fans. It also included the first annual Progressive Nation Tour, an idea that the band had kicked around for a few years and finally launched into action this past spring.

Chaos In Motion 2007/2008 is the latest in a series of DVDs from the band and it features performances captured throughout the entirety of the tour, unlike their last three RIAA-certified Platinum DVDs, Metropolis 2000: Live Scenes From New York, Live at Budokan and Score, all of which focused on as single concert event.

Drummer and DVD creative director Mike Portnoy plumed his personal archives for footage in order to provide fans with the ultimate tour souvenir. He assembled over three hours of complete live performances, taking footage from shows in Rotterdam, Buenos Aires, Toronto, Boston, Bangkok and Vancouver. The tracks were mixed and effectively brought to life by Kevin Shirley. The second disc is packed with bonus material, including promo videos, live screen projection films, a photo gallery and a 90-minute documentary that’ll make you feel like you’re riding in the passenger’s seat of the band’s tour bus, as it takes you on the road and behind the scenes with the band and crew. It’s like a virtual backstage pass that grants fans further unprecedented access.

The official content and tracklisting for the DVD are as follows and are subject to change:
