Progressive metal legends FATES WARNING have tapped Mike Portnoy (formerly of DREAM THEATER) to play drums for the band for their first-ever visit to South America as special guests for QUEENSRŸCHE in São Paulo, Brazil on April 14.
The band commented:
We’re pleased and excited to announce that Mike Portnoy will be our special guest drummer for our April 14th show in São Paulo, Brazil. We had a great time playing with Mike back in 2005 at the Headway festival in Holland and we’re happy that he’s able to help us out again. We’d also like to make it clear that Bobby Jarzombek is still the drummer for Fates and will be with us for our European shows in March as well as on the new record we’re currently working on. Unfortunately, Bobby committed to another gig on the same day (ironically, in the same city) before this show was planned.
Fates Warning are currently working on a new album to be released this year. Their most recent studio album, “X”, came out in 2004.
