It's just been announced that drummer Mike Portnoy will be joining Progressive Metallists Bigelf for their European autumn tour.
He has been instrumental in getting Bigelf back on their feet after a lengthy hiatus, contributing his drum work and arrangement skills to the band's latest album, 'Into The Maelstrom'.
Portnoy has been touring non-stop this year with this year's supergroup, The Winery Dogs and prog all-stars Transatlantic. That he chooses to hit the road with Damon Fox's outfit speaks volumes for Bigelf, and will be a boon for the band's European fans.
