Progressive metal champions Dream Theater are poised to release their latest album, a self-titled effort, next month, marking the group's second disc with drummer Mike Mangini. As we all know, Mangini replaced former drummer Mike Portnoy, who left the band then attempted to return but was rebuffed. With Portnoy recently again saying he would return to the band in a heartbeat if asked, frontman James Labrie has weighed in on the matter.
Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie is currently working on his next solo album, which will be his third release under the James LaBrie name. After Dream Theater's monster year in 2011, which included their first ever Grammy nomination, LaBrie spoke with Attention Deficit Delirium about the progression of his latest project.
