To say Dream Theater's gone through some tumult lately would be a major understatement. The departure of drummer Mike Portnoy shocked many fans, and lots of people wondered if and/or how the group would carry on. But they recruited new drummer Mike Mangini and made the album A Dramatic Turn of Events, which hit stores on September 13 and has been greeted with wild enthusiasm by the band's loyal audience. It's for that reason that Dream Theater has chosen to release this video, thanking their fans for their support throughout the drummer audition process and the recording of A Dramatic Turn of Events.

Check it out:

A Dramatic Turn of Events is in stores now, and the group will be conducting a special signing at Guitar Center on 14th Street in New York City on September 16 at 6 PM - it's open to only 200 fans who purchase the CD at Guitar Center, so get down there if you haven't already.
