ADRENALINE MOB — the band featuring Russell Allen (vocals; also of SYMPHONY X) and Mike Orlando (guitar) — has completed work on its new album, due later in the year via Century Media Records.
Following 2015’s “Dearly Departed”, the new disc was recorded by Orlando at his Sonic Stomp Studio.
Mike previously said that he and Russell were “both very excited” about the sound and direction of the new ADRENALINE MOB material.
ADRENALINE MOB and TWISTED SISTER drummer, A.J. Pero, died in March 2015 of a heart attack.
“Dearly Departed” was released in February 2015 through Century Media.
In a departure from “Covertà”, “Dearly Departed” featured, in addition to four cover tunes, a previously unreleased track from the sessions for ADRENALINE MOB‘s second album, 2014’s “Men Of Honor”, three acoustic renditions of songs from both 2012’s debut, “Omertà”, and “Men Of Honor”, and an edited version of the “Men Of Honor” track “Dearly Departed”.
ADRENALINE MOB in August 2014 tapped Erik Leonhardt (TANTRIC) as its new bass player following the departure of John Moyer (DISTURBED).
Moyer, who had been a member of DISTURBED since 2004, joined ADRENALINE MOB in February 2012 and appeared on the band’s “Covertà” EP (2013) and “Men Of Honor” album (2014).
“Men Of Honor” sold around 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 99 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band’s full-length debut, 2012’s “Omertá”, opened with around 6,600 units to enter the chart at No. 70.
Drummer Mike Portnoy (FLYING COLORS, THE WINERY DOGS, DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) quit ADRENALINE MOB in June 2013 due to “scheduling conflicts.”
