Avenged Sevenfold Announce Drummer For Upcoming Tour With Disturbed

Hey Everyone!
So its official! After hitting it off with the boys of Avenged Sevenfold while helping them track drums for their upcoming album, Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater will be filling in for their late drummer on their upcoming tour. After A7x Drummer Jimmy "The Reverand" Sullivan passed away unexpectedly late last year, the future of the band was met with a lot of unease and uncertainty. No one knew what would happen, but it looks like the guys are trying their best to keep the band, and Jimmy's legacy alive.

It is important to note that the Mike will not be a permanent drummer for the band. He is simply filling in because his tour schedule with Dream Theater allowed for it and he wants to help the guys out as much as possible. Although the tour with Disturbed and the album are both getting the green light, there are still a lot of questions pertaining to the future of the group. All I can say is that I hope they are dealing with these unfortunate circumstances as best as can be expected. Touring has to be very difficult when your best friend is no longer there with you. Same with studio sessions... I cant imagine how hard it must be.

Good luck boys, you have a strong fan base behind you!
Rock On,
