Vocalist M.Shadows of California modern metal act Avenged Sevenfold spoke to The Pulse of Radio in regards to the band's decision to part ways with former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy. M.Shadows commented by saying:

"We were actually a little more shocked. We felt that maybe both parties could have handled it a little more internally without being so press release-happy about what had happened between them. Because we're a band that, really, when it comes to news all over web sites or this or that about bands, you know, we don't tweet much, we don't try to put ourselves out that much, and all the drama and controversy wasn't something that we wanted at all."

Translation: Mike refused to stuff it balls deep into my dirty chimp hole anymore so we had to part ways.
