Adrenaline Mob Announce ‘Coverta’ Covers EP + 2013 North American Tour Dates
Adrenaline Mob are going the covers route before approaching their next official studio album. The band's latest EP is titled 'Coverta,' featuring eight rocking cover songs. The timing works out well for the supergroup, as they've also announced their first North American tour dates of 2013.
Adrenaline Mob are comprised of drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater, ex-Avenged Sevenfold), frontman Russell Allen (Symphony X), guitarist Mike Orlando (TRED) and bassist John Moyer (Disturbed).
'Coverta' arrives on March 12, coinciding with the opening date of the tour which takes place at Toad's Place in New Haven, Conn. The disc includes the band's takes on such hard rock and metal standards as Dio's 'Stand Up and Shout,' Rainbow's 'Kill the King' and Black Sabbath's 'The Mob Rules.' The group also covers Badlands' 'High Wire,' the Doors' 'Break on Through,' Van Halen's 'Romeo Delight,' Heart's 'Barracuda' and Led Zeppelin's 'The Lemon Song.'
As for the tour, it is not known exactly how many of the covers will make the band's set list, but it's fair to assume you'll hear at least a few sprinkled in among the songs from the band's debut disc, 'Omerta.' The trek runs through an April 7 finale in Richmond, Va., with support from Nothing More on the tour's first leg.
Adrenaline Mob returned to the studio in December, but it's not known if anything other than the new cover songs were recorded during the session or when we might expect their next original release.
