Dream Theater announced that Mike Portnoy had parted ways with the band. After 25 years Portnoy decided to take an indefinite hiatus from Dream Theater while the rest of the band are carrying on.

Mike Portnoy has a unique style to drumming that is also a signature sound to Dream Theater. Fans can only wonder what directions Dream Theater will go without Portnoy.

Black Clouds & Silver Linings has now become the last Dream Theater album with Mike Portnoy on Drums. Well, until he rejoins the band sometimes in the future, as fans hope.

    It’s like losing a marriage. 25 years with the same people. Sad indeed.
