As the title “We The People” indicates, there’s a political side to ADRENALINE MOB. Throughout their years as a musicians and songwriters, they hadn’t stayed silent on matters significant. Whether they were masked in metaphor or flatly conspicuous, they’ve always poured their feelings into song. It was, as Orlando puts it, a form of catharsis. So, as they were watching the presidential campaigns, feeling the negativity — the constant bickering and finger pointing — they knew ADRENALINE MOB‘s next venture would be affected. In fact, the first song Orlando began writing for “We The People” was the politically charged rocker “Blind Leading The Blind”. “The title track is very much inspired by the past election year,” confirms Allen. “It touches on our society, here in America. The album title is a reflection of our times. The songs have certain particular stories that stand on their own. Many of them are also driven by the climate we live in today and some are about having a good time, being free and loving rock ‘n’ roll. All the tracks have a personality and character to them.”
ADRENALINE MOB and TWISTED SISTER drummer A.J. Pero died in March 2015 of a heart attack.
Bassist John Moyer, who has 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.”
