Vitamin Records has set a February 20 release date for "The String Quartet Tribute to Dream Theater". A press release for the effort reads as follows;
For over 20 years, DREAM THEATER has consistently challenged and engaged critics and fans alike with their unique brand of progressive metal. They've sold millions of records worldwide, released a diverse array of studio albums, live sets and side projects, and have sold out tours across the globe — and they've done this by catering to no one. Members of both the mainstream and underground have been quick to dismiss the impact that DREAM THEATER has on their fans, but the proof is in the pudding. We challenge you to find a more dedicated fanbase than DREAM THEATER's.
In the classical, experimental spirit of their best material, "The String Quartet Tribute to Dream Theater" is a stripped-down take on the ambitious favorites that have won them fans around the world. Culled from a tracklist selected by legendary drummer Mike Portnoy, there is something for every DT fan to enjoy on this auditory onslaught. This is one project every DREAM THEATER fan needs to add to the voluminous library they've dedicated to the world's most amazing band.
