Ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy is back! Portnoy's new project Adrenaline Mob is releasing their self-titled debut EP on August 9th. The EP will available via iTunes as well as sold in physical form at the band's upcoming shows and online store. Self-produced, Adrenaline Mob features four original tracks as well as a blistering cover of the Dio-era Black Sabbath classic, "The Mob Rules." From the opening riff of "Psychosane" through the over six-minute epic sounding "Hit the Wall," it is clear that Adrenaline Mob are in a class all their own as musicians.
"Releasing the EP gives fans around the world a chance to get a taste of the Mob now without having to wait until the full length album comes out at the beginning of next year," said Portnoy.
Comprised of some of rock music's most notable faces and names, one thing Adrenaline Mob is not is a side project. The band is made up of the powerful and soaring vocals of Russell Allen, the shredding guitar attack of Mike Orlando and the rock solid rhythm playing of Rich Ward, the driving bass groove of Paul DiLeo and the legendary drumming of Mike Portnoy.
Hot on the heels of the release of Adrenaline Mob, the band will be heading out on their first ever headline tour on August 14th, which runs through mid-September. The tour kicks off in Allentown, PA and will be making stops in various markets including Chicago, Denver and San Francisco to name a few. The band has also been tapped to open for Godsmack on select dates of their upcoming tour.
A full-length release is planned for 2012.
Track listing is as follows:
2. Believe Me
3. Hit The Wall
4. Down To The Floor 5. The Mob Rules
