Interview by Alicia Atout | @AliciaAtout
I can’t even begin to express my Dream Theater obsession. Growing up and playing Rock Band competitively, the game made me fall head over heels with their Octavarium record and I’ve wanted to interview them for years. And it finally happened. With their new record A View from the Top of the World officially out, it was also the perfect time to speak with the band’s vocalist James LaBrie. Check out the conversation as we discuss cheeky nicknames, writing epic prog-rock songs, taking inspiration from outer space, Canadian pride, and how Rock Band got me obsessed with the band.
