Arjen Lucassen has announced a brand new Ayreon studio album Transitus, and Dr. Who star Tom Baker will play the part of The Storyteller.
"My new Ayreon album Transitus is without a doubt the most cinematic and outrageous album I’ve ever done," announces Lucassen. "I worked on it for three years, and it comes with a 25-page comic book. And even though there are a lot of “firsts” on this album, I guess my ‘Ayreon-sound’ is still quite recognisable. And hey, it’s narrated by one and only Doctor Who: Tom Baker!"
An update from Arjen: "I’m very proud to tell you that for the very first time the new Ayreon album will be released with a genuine 25-page comic book! It’s illustrated by the renowned artist Felix Vega. Here is a sneak peek, the pages are animated by Dave Letelier. Hope you like it as much as this nerd here does!"
