Artist discography


LasVegas, Nevada rock band Adelita Way delivered in 2009 a very good debut including the single "Invincible" that did very well. Now they are back with a brand new album and is a bit surprised that it only took two years to get it out. Ok, two years was quite a long time in the "classical" period in which artists at least made ​​one albuma year, but today the business is completely different and in some ways a lot tougher.

On "Homeschool Valedictorian" the band have this time worked with writer / producer Dave Bassett (Shinedown, Versamerge) and Tadpole (Disturbed, Adelita Way, Finger Eleven), which of course succeeded in creating a worthy sequel. So as the debut, we get a nice dose of powerful modern rock with beautiful melodies, bombastic guitars and a bunch of custom made radio songs that must work. Songs like the Daughtry-like "Alive" and "Good Enough" is really strong as the first single "Sick" is not entirely unlike "Invincible". However, I think his debut is a little bit better with a bit stronger second half, but "Homeschool Valedictorian" is an excellent follow up and well worth checking out if you’re into acts like Nickelback, Cavo and Daughtry.

Did you know that?

Mark Wakefield was in Linkin Park when they were called Xero, but then left because the other band members wanted to go big and he didn´t want that.
