Dream Theater ‘Bursting at the Seams’ to Reveal New Drummer


Despite former drummer/founder Mike Portnoy’s wishes that his departure would only be a hiatus, prog metal giants Dream Theater have selected a new drummer.

“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,” guitarist John Petrucci said in statement, holding back any hints about the new Dream Theater drummer’s identity.

He continued, “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!”

With a new drummer in tow, Dream Theater are slated to begin recording their follow-up to ‘Black Clouds & Silver Linings’ in January.
