Black Clouds & Silver LiningsMike Portnoy says, "This is truly amazing… that after almost 25 years together, this band is still growing and progressing and doing bigger and better than ever. Plus, a progressive metal album with four songs over 12 minutes in the US Top 10??? (wedged between Jonas Brothers, Eminem and Hannah Montana!) Hell must’ve frozen over!!!!"This is DT’s highest US chart number ever, beating "Systematic Chaos" which charted at #19 back in May 2007 and until now was the band’s highest chart debut. That is also DT’s highest first week units total ever – handily beating "Awake‘ which did 36,160 first week back in October 1994 (#32 on the chart). "Awake" was the first (and very heavily anticipated) DT album in the wake of the band’s previous breakthrough album "Images And Words" – with its smash hit "Pull Me Under" – and yet here they are 15 years later totally crushing it. SABIAN would like to congratulate our friends in Dream Theater on this remarkable achievement and thank Mike Portnoy for his decades of devotion to the SABIAN sound. We’re honored to be on all of those recordings no matter how many they sell!
