Former Adema Frontman Working On Solo Effort

Former ADEMA frontman Marky Chavez is currently working on a solo album, tentatively due early next year via Thru The Roof Records. According to a posting on his MySpace page, the lineup for the project consists of the following musicians:

Marky Chavez - Vocals, Guitar, Bass
Joe Davis - Guitar, Drums
Adam Stahl - Guitar

Chavez — who is the half-brother of KORN's Jonathan Davis — left ADEMA in 2004 while the band was working on material for its third album. He was reportedly in talks about returning to the group after the departure of his replacement, Luke Caraccioli, but those plans have since been abandoned.

ADEMA's new album, "Kill the Headlights", was released on August 21 via Immortal Records. The CD was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Marshall Altman (MARC BROUSSARD, ZEBRAHEAD). Mastering duties were handled by Eddie Schreyer at Oasis Mastering in Burbank.

ADEMA last year announced the addition of vocalist Bobby Reeves of the Los Angeles-based band LEVEL to the group's ranks.

Adema Announce New Vocalist

Vocalist Bobby Reeves of the Los Angeles-based band LEVEL has been named the new singer of ADEMA.

"Bobby's definitely got his own voice," ADEMA bassist Dave DeRoo writes in a posting on the United Sites of Adema forum. "He's super-talented; a well-rounded musician who writes great lyrics, and can jam the drums, guitar, bass, as well as produce (in other words, just like the three of us...lol!). He's a great guy, too. I can tell you one thing: Bobby's got the atiitude, the voice, and the vocal range to bust out anything from our catalogue, and we've never sounded better. You'll hear it soon enough, I promise!"

DeRoo adds in a separate online posting, "We just got back from a 10-day run up in Alaska. The shows were killer; we had a blast, and we're currently booking shows as we speak! We're going out for a couple of months before we go back in the studio..."

Reeves joins ADEMA as the replacement for Luke Caraccioli, who left the band in October 2005 — only six months after the release of their first album ("Planets") without the contributions of singer Marky Chavez (half-brother of KORN's Jonathan Davis).
