ONE TO WATCH // Mike Portnoy's new super group ADRENALINE MOB European/UK Tour

There's a new gang in town. They're tough and tight-knit, and they're not taking any prisoners! Bringing together acclaimed Symphony X singer Russell Allen, former Dream Theater and Avenged Sevenfold drum virtuoso Mike Portnoy and Sonic Stomp shred extraordinaire Mike Orlando, Adrenaline Mob is musical mafia of the highest order. 
Not only are the metal mob embarking on their debut UK/European tour, they are bringing with them new album Omertá...

Legendary ex-Dream Theater sticksman Mike Portnoy has taken time out  of his schedule to film a short video message from his studio for his UK and European fans.

Portnoy has also commented: “After having now given the US a taste of The Mob live, I cannot wait to bring the incredible raw energy of this band to Europe and the UK! It's going to be a blast to play a bunch of the great festivals that have always been summer highlights for me as well as making the rounds in select cities with our own club shows.”

On their full-length debut album, “Omertà, the group cranks out one bruising hard rock anthem after another. Songs like the first single “Undaunted” and “Hit the Wall” hijack the right level of instrumental intricacy and taut technicality while grooving and moving fluidly. At the same time, “Angel Sky” takes flight on a massive lead and heavenly refrain.
