James LaBrie checked in to comment about the upcoming EP: "Hey Everyone! Matt, Marco, Peter, Ray and yours truly are very pleased to release this digital EP. It will show some of the songs with alternate mixes as well as letting you hear Matt's exceptional voice with some of the songs in their demo versions. We also had 3 of the songs mixed in dub step stylings to give them a somewhat interesting flavour and twist. Hope you all enjoy this release, I personally think it is very cool. All the best in the New Year and see you out there..."
Well, can't argue over "Impermanent Resonance" was unsuccessful campaign for him or not but I think that album was totally boring and commercial. Its merely to please prog fans and let them know he hasn't vanished from the scene.
Okay, about Dream Theater stuff, well, they somehow balancing themselves to be remain active with the fans.
