Dream Theater express their delight over Grammy nomination

Fri, 02 December 2011

Prog metal titans Dream Theater have expressed their joy over their recent Grammy nomination for the 'Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance'.

The nomination is for their track 'On the Backs of Angels' which features on their 2011 release, 'A Dramatic Turn of Event'. The Long Island based outfit issued an official statement on their website which read:

'2011 has been quite an amazing year for us. We watched ‘A Dramatic Turn of Events’ — our eleventh studio album — enter the Top Ten in 14 countries around the world including the U.S. And now we land our first-ever Grammy nomination [for the song "On The Backs of Angels" in the Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance category]. It’s the icing on the cake — we’re honoured and thrilled, no doubt about it.'

The post continued:

'It took us a while to receive this Grammy attention — and we’ve done it on our own terms musically, so it feels particularly sweet. What keeps you going as a musician is the love and support from the fans–they are always there for us on this crazy adventure. So we give them a big shout-out as we celebrate our Grammy nomination. See you all on the road … and let’s all keep dreaming big.'

Dream Theater face competition from Megadeth (Public Enemy No.1), Mastodon (Curl of the Burl), Foo Fighters (White Limo), & Sum 41 (Blood In My Eyes) in the battle for the 'Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance' Grammy award.
