Dream Theater has posted a 20 minute documentary clip online discussing the departure of drummer Mike Portnoy and showcasing several of the people of the auditioned for the vacant position. You can check out the documentary at this location (spoiler: they still don't reveal who it is). The band also commented:

"Hi Everyone, we wanted to take a minute to thank all of you who signed up and watched the trailer on Thursday. This is an incredibly exciting time for all of us and we know that the anticipation has been, well, uncomfortable to say the least!

"Over the next few days we hope that you will enjoy this very special documentary we've put together which literally invites everyone into the rehearsal room during the audition process and ultimately reveals who we chose as the new drummer in Dream Theater.

"This is unlike anything we've ever done before and we felt that this would be a unique way of sharing our experience with all of you as a sincere thank you to everyone who has listened to, believed in and supported DT throughout the years.

"Beyond all the drama and presentation, it always comes back to the thing that unites us all: our common passion to create, perform and listen to great music! To that end we are in the studio working hard on our next album and can't wait to deliver it to the world and to see all of our friends on tour. Until then, please go to Roadrunner's YouTube channel to begin watching the documentary now!"
