Adrenaline Mob Add New Drummer Jordan Cannata
A lot has happened with Adrenaline Mob since their 2014 album, Men of Honor. The band has undergone a pair of lineup changes since that disc, with founders Russell Allen and guitarist Mike Orlando now flanked by a new bassist and drummer. The latest addition to the band is drummer Jordan Cannata, who fills the void left by the late A.J. Pero.
Pero, who had a lengthy career with Twisted Sister, joined Adrenaline Mob after Mike Portnoy exited the band. But during promotion of the disc, Pero died of a heart attack. Chad Szeliga filled in for the group on their remaining scheduled dates after Pero's death, while Mike Portnoy and Johnny Kelly also made appearances with the band as well. But with the band moving toward new music, they needed to fill the void and Cannata will take over behind the kit. In introducing the drummer, the band provided video of a drum solo just to whet the appetite of their fans. Watch it above.
Meanwhile, while the band recorded Men of Honor with John Moyer on bass, the reactivation of Disturbed after a lengthy hiatus led to his exit as well. Tantric's Erik Leonhardt took over bass duties during the promotion of the album.
Both new members are expected to join Allen and Orlando when they begin support of their next album. The group has reportedly finished work on the disc and is expected to issue it later this year.
