I'm making this thread purely because after searching 'Dream Theater' into the forums, I never found one thread/post about their new drummer or process/upcoming of their new album.

I'm going to assume most people know their new drummer, but if not, it's Mike Mangini. And there are documentaries with the drummer auditions and he actually does a good job. He's no Mike Portnoy, but I think he will do well in his place.

And as for the album, it's been fully recorded and currently being mixed, and due for a release early September time. I'd hate be informing news that everyone knows but what the hell...
