TransAtlantic, the progressive rock supergroup formed by Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Pete Trewavas (Marillion), Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings) and Neal Morse (ex-Spock's Beard), have reunited after a seven year hiatus to begin work on a brand new studio album.
The band began work on the album in early April in Nashville and is expected to have it released by year's end if all goes as planned.
TransAtlantic released two acclaimed studio albums in the early part of the century, 2000's SMPTe and 2001's Bridge Across Forever. After tours through the U.S. and Europe, the band parted ways for an indefinite hiatus around the same time that Morse left Spock's Beard to concentrate on his religion-based solo career.
Fates Warning have announced the drummers for the upcoming European shows.
"Ray, Joey, Frank, and I are pleased and honoured to announce that Mike Portnoy (Dream Theatre) will be playing drums for us at the Headway festival April 3rd in Amstelveen, Netherlands", says guitarist Jim Matheos.
For the February gigs, none other than Nick D´Virgilio of Spock's Beard will handle the drums!

Feb. 16 Wigwam - Budapest, Hungary
Feb. 17 Hristo Botev Hall - Sofia, Bulgaria
Feb. 18 Vox - Istanbul, Turkey
