Can’t wait for Dream Theater’s first (and hopefully one of many cos he’s awesome) albums with new drummer Mike Mangini. The title of the newie – A Dramatic Turn of Events – sounds like a little nod to the departure of Mike Portnoy late last year, doesn’t it? Keyboard player Jordan Rudess revealed the title and track listing a few minutes ago on Twitter.
