They released a YouTube video of a cover version of the Black Sabbath song "The Mob Rules" on June 27, 2011, to promote the band. On New Year's Eve 2011, Adrenaline Mob announced via their Facebook page that they would release their debut full-length studio album Omertà on March 13, 2012, and also revealed the album art. On January 7, 2012, the band announced the departures of Rich Ward and Paul Di Leo due to scheduling conflicts with their other bands. On February 8, 2012, it was announced that John Moyer (Disturbed) was Adrenaline Mob's new bass player. Mayer made his on-stage debut with the group on March 12, at New York City’s Hiro Ballroom, a day before the release of Omertà. On January 31, 2013, the band announced the release of an EP of cover songs entitled Covertá; it was released on March 12, 2013. On June 4, 2013, Portnoy announced via Adrenaline Mob's Facebook page that he would be playing four more shows with the band before departing. Portnoy cited scheduling conflicts that prevented him from being able "to fully commit to the band's future activities at the moment". On December 3, 2013, the band announced that their second full-length album would be released on February 18, 2014, in North America and on February 24, 2014, internationally, and would be titled Men Of Honor. Portnoy was replaced by A. J. Pero of Twisted Sister. On August 4, 2014, Moyer informed his fans via Facebook and Twitter that he would not be joining Adrenaline Mob on an upcoming planned tour. In response, Adrenaline Mob announced that they were in search of a new bass player, effectively ending Moyer's tenure with the band. Shortly after, the band selected Erik Leonhardt as its new bass player. On January 6, 2015, the group announced they would release a new covers album, Dearly Departed, through Century Media on February 9 in Europe (digital only) and on February 10 in North America. On March 20, 2015, it was announced that drummer AJ Pero died at the age of 55. The next day, the band performed in New Jersey with several drummers filling in for Pero, including Chad Szeliga, Johnny Kelly, and former Adrenaline Mob drummer Mike Portnoy.
