MIKE PORTNOY Checks In From THE NEAL MORSE BAND Recording Sessions; New Double Concept Album "An Absolute Masterpiece"

Drummer Mike Portnoy has checked in from The Neal Morse Band's current recording sessions in Nashville:

"This selfie was snapped at the end of last night's session where we listened to playback of the entire new Neal Morse Band album from start to finish (only my drum tracks are finished so far). WOW! I am absolutely speechless....

As much as I initially fought against the idea (for very obvious reasons), it has grown into a double concept album. I usually never say this about new albums I make, but I honestly feel this album is an absolute masterpiece, and probably in the Top 3 of the most defining albums of my entire career (along with Dream Theater's Scenes From A Memory and Transatlantic's The Whirlwind)

I'll just say this: If you think you've heard the Prog Album of 2016, you ain't heard nuthin' yet! Wait 'til you get a load of this..."

The new album is slated for release in September/October. More news coming soon.

In 2015, The Neal Morse Band released the video for the title track from their album The Grand Experiment. Check it out below.
