Dream Theater Pick Their New Drummer

(Gibson) Dream Theater have found their new drummer to replace Mike Portnoy, who left the band earlier this year to pursue other musical avenues. But fans are going to have to wait a little while longer to find out who it is.

According to Blabbermouth.net, guitarist John Petrucci has updated fans with the following message: "Hey, everyone. Wanted to quickly let you all know what's been happening lately. I know that the big question is 'Who is the new Dream Theater drummer?' I also realize that some people are getting frustrated waiting for the news. Well, auditions went great and we do have someone but we are spending some time getting everything in order before making an official announcement. Let me just say that we are all incredibly excited about our choice and just bursting at the seams to let the world know!"

Petrucci goes on to say he's working on tunes for his next solo album as well as cataloguing riffs for the next Dream Theater album, which the band will start recording next month. more on this story
