DREAM THEATER creating hype over drummer announcement
 
A little more than a month after original drummer Mike Portnoy’s sudden departure from DREAM THEATER, the band held three days of auditions in New York City. Over an amazing and productive three-day period, the band played, jammed and spoke candidly with seven of the world’s greatest drummers, learning about them musically, personally and professionally, and assessing the fit of each drummer’s incredible chops with the band’s trademark prog-rock sound.

Dream Theater have been extremely sensitive to the fact that this is not only a monumental decision in their own lives, but also a critical moment in the lives of their fans around the world.

“The departure of our lifelong bandmate and friend was an unexpected and truly heartbreaking blow,” says guitarist John Petrucci. “The fact that as a result of that event we’d be introduced to seven infinitely capable and uniquely talented drummers was heartening.”

Dream Theater would like to share with its fans some of the intense process, along with the musical joy, that went into choosing a new drummer.

So who is the best fit behind the kit?

Whoever it is, by the time they're finished with this little publicity stunt and actually announce it, it's guaranteed to be a let down.

Unless it's Bill Ward or someone else equally out of nowhere, I'm not sure I really care anymore.

Wow...

If these auditions are so exciting I'm surprised they don't sell tickets to them.

If its Portnoy, I'm going to set a car on fire.

So is the new drummer contractually obligatied to something else first and that's why they can't announce it yet? If he's not than this is just about the most annoying thing a band can do to their fans.
