Mike Portnoy Quits ADRENALINE MOBTuesday, 4th June 2013
Drummer Mike Portnoy (THE WINERY DOGS, FLYING COLORS, ex-DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) has quit ADRENALINE MOB and released the following statement:
“It saddens me to announce that the four upcoming shows in Latin America this month supporting HALESTORM will be my last with ADRENALINE MOB. Unfortunately, I have scheduling conflicts that prevent me from being able to fully commit to the band’s future activities at the moment. As I cannot be in two places at the same time, I don’t want to hold them back and have to wait for my schedule to re-open up to resume activity. I’m very proud of what we started together and the music we made over the past two years and I wish the guys all the best in the future.”
ADRENALINE MOB also features SYMPHONY X frontman Russell Allen, guitar virtuoso Mike Orlando (SONIC STOMP) and DISTURBED bassist John Moyer. The band released their eight-track EP called Covertá featuring cover versions of some of the band’s favorites in March.
