DREAM THEATER's Mike Portnoy is the featured drummer on the forthcoming solo CD, entitled "Testimony", from former SPOCK'S BEARD frontman and Portnoy's TRANSLATLANTIC bandmate Neal Morse, due on September 23 through Radiant Records.

"I guess now that the cat is out of the bag, it is safe for me to report that I do indeed play on Neal Morse's entire upcoming double CD 'Testimony' which will be released on Sept 23rd," Portnoy writes on his web site.

"I recorded my tracks back in February and I am honored to be a part of this amazing CD and to continue my working relationship with Neal. He has completely outdone himself once again and in my opinion has created another masterpiece.

"SPOCK'S BEARD and TRANSATLANTIC fans will be pleased to hear that the music is as proggy & beautiful as ever and Neal's writing style is still intact and as intense as ever!

"I am also excited to announce that I will be joining Neal in the fall to do some exclusive live shows in support of the album."
