Dream Theater To Announce Portnoy's Replacement This Week

(Gibson) The long wait for the announcement of the new Dream Theater drummer is almost over, with details of the announcement to be made public on Thursday, April 21.

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.

Dream Theater conducted three days of intense auditions with seven drummers in New York City just over a month after Mike Portnoy parted ways with the group. "The departure of our lifelong bandmate and friend was an unexpected and truly heartbreaking blow," guitarist John Petrucci said. "The fact that as a result of that event we'd be introduced to seven infinitely capable and uniquely talented drummers was heartening." more on this story
