Adrenaline Mob is a band formed by drummer Mike Portnoy
after his departure from Dream Theater in early 2011. The other members that make up the quintet are Symphony X frontman Russell Allen, guitarists Rich Ward (Fozzy) and Mike Orlando and bassist Paul DiLeo. Adrenaline Mob's first live performance was on June 24, 2011 at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City and they released a YouTube video of a cover version of Black Sabbath's "The Mob Rules" three days later. This six minute plus epic is from their self-titled and self-produced debut EP, which was released on August 9, 2011.
Portnoy quit Adrenaline Mob in June 2013 due to "scheduling conflicts" and was replaced by Twisted Sister drummer A.J. Pero.
