A short while ago, Adrenaline Mob, the band featuring Mike Portnoy (formerly of Dream Theater and Avenged Sevenfold), Russell Allen (of Symphony X) and guitarist Mike Orlando announced that their bass player and second guitarist were leaving due to prior commitments with their other bands. They also teased that they were auditioning a new bass player that people knew pretty well.

They got him in the band now officially, and his name is John Moyer (from Disturbed)!

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. After jamming with Russ, MO, and Portnoy, the chemistry as musicians was undeniable. 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!”
