November 11, 2016 – Loyal fans of THE NEAL MORSE BAND—singer/guitarist/keyboardist Neal Morse, drummer Mike Portnoy, bassist Randy George, keyboardist Bill Hubauer and guitarist Eric Gillette—have been extremely patient since the announcement was made in September that a new album was coming. Soon after, the band has released four videos to give them a taste of what to expect, and the resulting praise online has been overwhelming. A fifth video premiered on PROG’s website this morning for “The Man In The Iron Cage.”

Today is finally the day they’ve been waiting for:  THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM, a double-disc concept album, has been released on Radiant Records via Metal Blade Records/SONY. It’s the eighth studio album with Morse, Portnoy and George, and the second as a true collaboration with this current lineup. Clocking in at over 100 minutes, this amazing piece of prog storytelling will leave you breathless, exhilarated, amused and fulfilled in a way that only inspired music can. It’s available in various formats: a two CD package, a Special Edition with the two CDs and “The Making Of A Dream” DVD, or as three vinyl records along with two CDs.

THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM has already been racking up one rave review after another from all over the globe.

THE NEAL MORSE BAND tours worldwide almost yearly and continues to grow in popularity, attracting new listeners everywhere they go. The band has toured in North America, Central America, Europe, Israel, Mexico and India. The shows are filled with excited and extremely loyal fans, some which have regularly traveled very long distances to see the band. The band has an extensive catalog of live shows on Blu-Ray and DVD as well.

Their latest round of worldwide tour dates start January 14, 2017 in Morse’s current hometown of Nashville, TN. More dates will be announced in the coming weeks on the band’s official website.
