Jay Nanda of the San Antonio Metal Music Examiner conducted an interview with ADRENALINE MOB — the band featuring featuring drummer Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD), SYMPHONY X frontman Russell Allen, guitar virtuoso Mike Orlando (SONIC STOMP) and DISTURBED bassist John Moyer — before the group's April 7 performance after the San Antonio Rampage American Hockey League game against the Milwaukee Admirals at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.
Nanda's review of the ADRENALINE MOB concert is available at this location.
The Natural Ear Music School is owned and operated by Moyer and teaches kids to play rock 'n' roll by ear by grouping kids in a similar age and experience range to form a functional band unit. The school was established in Austin, Texas in 1991 will open a school in San Antonio this summer.
ADRENALINE MOB travelled to Los Angeles last month to film a video for the song "Indifferent". The clip, which was directed by Scott Hansen (A DAY TO REMEMBER, UNEARTH, WILLIE NELSON), was shot in the desert in California and throughout Los Angeles and should be making its debut in the next couple of weeks.
"Indifferent" comes off ADRENALINE MOB's debut album, "Omertá", which sold around 6,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 70 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released in Europe on March 19 in Europe via Century Media Records and in the U.S. on March 13 through the newly formed Elm City Music in conjunction with EMI Label Services.
The 11-song effort — which was produced by ADRENALINE MOB and mixed by Jay Ruston, who has previously worked on ANTHRAX's "Worship Music" and STEEL PANTHER's "Balls Out" — includes a blistering reinterpretation of DURAN DURAN's classic "Come Undone" featuring guest vocals by Lzzy Hale of HALESTORM.
