Dream Theater have announced Dreamsonic — their very own travelling summer festival series celebrating the best in progressive metal. The band will be hitting the North American road with Devin Townsend and Animals as Leaders through June and July, including a handful of Canadian stops in Montreal, Hamilton, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.

The trek begins in Cedar Park on June 6, with the prog heavyweights hitting Canada to mark the dawn of July at Laval's Bell Place on July 4 and Hamilton's FirstOntario Centre on July 5.

The lineup then ventures back into the US before taking on a few shows on the Canadian West Coast, playing Calgary's Great Eagle on July 18, Edmonton's Northern Alberta Jubilee on July 19 and Vancouver's Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre on July 21 ahead of wrapping the tour on July 26 in Phoenix.

"Dreamsonic promises to be a reoccurring musical event that will deliver history-making nights of amazing music for many years to come," Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci said in a statement. "You're not going to want to miss this one!"

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday (April 14) at 10 a.m. ET, following presales scheduled for tomorrow (April 13).
