Well, we've said he's got a hell of a lot of stuff on his plate, and it seems he's trying to free up some space. Portnoy will leave Adrenaline Mob to pursue other projects and prevent scheduling conflicts.

As of right now, Portnoy is in another project entitled The Winery Dogs. This band seems to have more of a positive consensus than Adrenaline Mob ever did per internet forums.

Portnoy will finish the remaining South American dates with Adrenaline Mob, as the band is touring with Halestorm.

We'll see how this all shakes out for Portnoy..
