DREAM THEATER Shut Down Official Message Board Due To New Album Leak

DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy has reportedly shut down the official message boards of DreamTheater.net and MikePortnoy.com due to the leak of the new DT album, "Octavarium", on the Internet. He has replaced the link to the Bulletin Board on both sites with a countdown clock to 12:00 a.m. June 7, 2005, the release date of the new album.

As previously reported, audio samples of seven of the eight tracks from the upcoming DREAM THEATER album, "Octavarium", have been posted online at Bol.de (scroll down to the "Hörproben" section).

DREAM THEATER began writing and recording their latest album last November at the Hit Factory studios in New York City. The follow-up to 2003's "Train of Thought" will hold the distinction of being the very last album ever recorded at the world-famous recording facility.
