Dream Theater To Announce Portnoy's Replacement This Week
The band's label, Roadrunner Records, has advised fans to head to the band's Facebook page at 11 a.m. (EST) on that date to sign up for the mailing list and to receive details about an exclusive look at the audition process and to find out exactly when and how the new member will be named.
