Hey, thanks for reposting!
Just to clarify, Mike isn't actually in
the band, at least not for now, technically speaking. He's gonna be tracking the whole album with us, and it's quite likely we'll be doing some shows together, but I doubt this will be a long-term arrangement, mainly due to his commitments with Symphony X. Things can work out for the most part during their downtime, but once they get their next record out and start to tour, we'd definitely be out of luck, so we're gonna see what happens... but for now, it's still rather exciting.
