Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess was interviewed via Skype by Chris Epting of Noisecreep recently; you can watch the clip now above. He discusses the currently very embryonic recording sessions for the band's next studio album - obviously, there are no concrete details to offer, since they're barely getting started, so don't come to this expecting song titles or anything like that. But he does talk about one crucial element of the new music, which is the role of drummer Mike Mangini. Enjoy!
