Barbara Caserta of Italian web radio Linearock.it recently conducted an interview with drummer Mike Mangini of progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
DREAM THEATER‘s new album, “A Dramatic Turn Of Events”, is likely to sell between 30,000 and 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on September 13 via Roadrunner Records.
DREAM THEATER‘s previous CD, 2009’s “Black Clouds Silver Linings”, opened with 40,000 units to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. This was roughly in line with the first-week tally registered by its predecessor, “Systematic Chaos”, which shifted 36,000 copies in 2007 to enter the chart at No. 19. 2005’s “Octavarium” premiered with 27,000 copies to debut at No. 36.
