Mike Portnoy
Adrenaline Mob — the so-called supergroup featuring vocalist Russell Allen of Symphony X and former Dream Theater and Avenged Sevenfold drummer Mike Portnoy — just got even more super.

The band have announced the addition of Disturbed bassist John Moyer to their lineup.

Dude’s got time on his hands, after all.

The four-stringer will be making his onstage debut with the group on March 12, at New York City’s Hiro Ballroom, a day before they release their debut full-length, Omertá.

“Mike Portnoy called me about auditioning for his new band Adrenaline Mob,” Moyer said in a statement. “He had heard through the grapevine that I was looking to stay busy while Disturbed is on hiatus. I am super stoked about joining ‘The Family’ and I can’t wait to hit the road with these guys and see what kind of musical mayhem we can create!”

I will give this forthcoming album an honest chance. I would like to hear what it sounds like. We shall see whether it proves worthy.
