Multi-camera video footage of ADRENALINE MOB performing a cover version of the the CHARLIE DANIELS BAND classic “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” on April 9 at Cardinal Bands & Billiards in Wilmington, North Carolina can be seen below.
ADRENALINE MOB and TWISTED SISTER drummer, A.J. Pero, died on March 20 of a suspected heart attack.
Playing drums for ADRENALINE MOB at all currently scheduled shows is ex-BREAKING BENJAMIN sticksman Chad Szeliga.
ADRENALINE MOB is the band featuring Russell Allen (vocals; also of SYMPHONY X) and Mike Orlando (guitar).
The band’s latest album, “Dearly Departed”, was released in February through Century Media.
In a departure from “Covertà”, “Dearly Departed” features, 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 last August 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.
“Men Of Honor” was released on February 18, 2014 in North America and February 24, 2014 internationally via Century Media Records.
Drummer Mike Portnoy (FLYING COLORS, THE WINERY DOGS, DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) quit ADRENALINE MOB in June 2013 due to “scheduling conflicts.”
