Our longtime studio drum tech Mike Fasano recommended Arin Ilejay. We’ve rehearsed with Arin and have been impressed with his technical skills, attitude and work ethic. We’re very excited to tour with Arin and hope all of you will give him the warm welcome to the family we have.”

Posted by NichTheHair on Monday, January 3, 2011 at 1:57 PM (PST)

Former Dream Theater drummer MIke Portnoy has some plans for this year. After leaving Dream Theater on a presumed temporary period of time to tour with Avenged Sevenfold, he announced he would like to make the change permanent. This not sitting well with either of the bands, both Dream Theater and Avenged wanted to move forward without Portnoy. Now, somewhat marooned and removed from his previous ventures, Mike sets out to new seas in 2011.

Via facebook, Portnoy comments “It’s a new year and time for new beginnings…tomorrow I start 2011 Project #1 (of many more to come): MP, Steve Morse, Neal Morse, Dave LaRue & Casey McPherson…the musical potential is off the charts! Very exciting indeed…”

Currently, Dream Theater are entering the studio and Avenged are still searching for a permanent replacement to The Rev.

Posted by Lucas Riot on Thursday, December 16, 2010 at 5:51 PM (PST)

Metalcore act Avenged Sevenfold are not renewing drummer Mike Portnoy’s contract for 2011, resulting in his departure from the band.

Mike announced his leave from Avenged Sevenfold today in a Facebook post:

Yes, the rumours are true…sadly my time with Avenged Sevenfold has come to an end…

The band has decided to carry on into 2011 without me…I had a great time with them throughout 2010, but it was their choice to end the relationship at the end of 2010 as was always the initial plan….

I had an awesome time on stage with the guys every night and have so many cool memories from the experience with them…I am proud to always be part of the A7X family and history.

I also adore the A7X fans and totally appreciate the way they welcomed me aboard and were so loving and supportive during my time with the band…thank you!

As far as my future, I am excited by the endless musical possibilities that lie ahead of me…my love for music runs very deep and my taste is very broad and ecclectic which will give me the chance to explore many different things and collaborate with many great friends and artists I admire and respect…

The band has not issued a statement regarding the renewal of Portnoy’s contract.

Portnoy replaced Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, who died of an accidental drug overdose in 2009.
