Two Bands Drop Off Prog Nation Tour

(Blabbermouth) Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy has released the following statement: "It is with the utmost disappointment that I am forced to share the unfortunate news of both Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish having to pull out of this summer's [Dream Theater-headlined] Progressive Nation tour....

"Their label, Inside Out, just recently lost the financial funding for the tour as a result of their distributor SPV recently claiming bankruptcy...which effectively meant that both Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish lost the tour support that was essential to their ability to come to North America for Progressive Nation.

"All parties involved (myself, both bands, Inside Out, etc) are beyond devastated at this turn of events and are truly sorry to all of the fans that were looking forward to this lineup. We tried everything we could do to salvage the situation, but in the end it was not possible... - Find out who is taking their place (one of the band's puts on one of the best shows in rock!)
