Das 15. Studio-Album „A View From The Top Of The World“ der Prog-Metal Götter wirft seine Schatten voraus. Im Zuge dessen stellt die Band nun das Video zur Single „The Alien“ vor. Den Stream dazu findet ihr weiter unten.
Petrucci zum Song: “It’s the first one we wrote together. It gives people a window into what it was like when we initially met up after all of those months off. It has the adventure, the untraditional structure, the heaviness, and the hooks. It really set the tone for the album.” “ James wrote the lyrics about the idea of terraforming and looking beyond our Earth for alternative settlements. Since we’re going beyond our planet, ‘The Alien’ turns out to be us. I thought it was a cool and creative lyric by James.”
