The debut EP from Mike Portnoy's new band, Adrenaline Mob, has landed at No. 13 on Billboard's Heatseekers (Top New Artist Albums) chart. The chart is reserved for bands/artists who have never cracked the Billboard Top 200 before.
The band -- which also features guitarist Mike Orlando, Symphony X vocalist Russell Allen, Stuck Mojo guitarist Rich Ward and bassist Paul DiLeo -- are currently working on their debut full-length album, which is set to be released "at the beginning of next year."
As previously reported, Mike Portnoy is also in the process of putting together a "supergroup" of sorts with Thin Lizzy guitarist John Sykes.
