Adelitas Way is a five-piece rock group hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada formed in 2005. Their first single, Invincible, is the official theme song of WWE Superstars on WGN America, which first aired on April 16 2009. Since Invincible became so successful on the show, Adelitas Way were approached by the WWE staff and asked to write a song for the tag-team Legacy featuring Randy Orton. A New Day was penned and recorded and is now the entrance theme for Legacy. Invincible was featured on the CSI Miami Finale commercials which aired on CBS between May 11 2009 – May 18 2009.
A New Day is now the title track to the WWE's newest soundtrack, featuring songs from Story of the Year and Adelitas Way.
Adelitas Way released their first full-length debut album on Capitol/Virgin Records on July 14th, 2009. It garnered rave reviews from Tunelab and other music blogs, and sold over 2,000 copies in its first week. The album debuted at #16 on Billboard's 'Heat Seekers' chart, which features up and coming artists.
Invincible peaked at number four on Active Rock Radio charts and the album has sold over 12,000 copies to date.. Recent tours with the likes of Shinedown, Sick Puppies, Cavo, Breaking Benjamin, 10 Years, and Hurt have gained the band thousands of new fans.
Invincible is also featured on the new Smackdown v. Raw 2010 video game which is in stores now.
The band's new single, Last Stand, is set to hit rock radio on February 2nd. The video was filmed at the end of January in LA and features a storyline focusing mainly on lead singer Rick Dejesus. It should be released by the end of February.
Founding member and lead guitarist Chris Iorio left the band at the end of 2009. No reasons have been given for his departure, but he has been replaced by former The Leo Project guitarist Creighton Bibbs. Bibbs was replaced in 2011 by Robert Zakaryan.
Adelitas Way got their name from a very unorthodox source. While on tour on the west coast, their van was pulled over and eventually raided and thieved by corrupt Mexican cops who took all the money the band had, except for the few dollars Rick stashed in his boot. Disoriented and shaken from the experience, the band headed to the first bar they could find to calm themselves down. It was the Adelita Bar. After spending some time in there, the guys realized that it wasn't just a bar, it was a brothel. Rick ended up talking to one of the girls who worked there and asked her how she could live like she was day in and day out. She explained that it was the only way she knew to support her family in need. Talking to her helped change Rick's outlook on life and people, and thus the 'way' she lived became the inspiration for the name.
The Labra Brothers have established themselves regionally, not only as the standard within their core genre of Latin Funk & Soul, but also as a dynamic and diverse juggernaut of musical presentation. They released their new EP, “Waiting”, in April 2022.
A throwback to the emotional alt-metal of bands like Deftones, Glassjaw, and Far, Greenville, South Carolina’s Islander merch driving metal with soaring emo to create their ripping sound.

In 2013, Islander were signed to Victory Records, where they released their debut EP, Pains., later that year. Continuing to build hype, Islander went into the studio with Alkaline Trio and Silverstein producer Cameron Webb to record their full-length debut Violence and Destruction. The album arrived in 2014, with the band setting out on the 2014 Mayhem Festival to support it.

Led by songwriters Isaac Horn (guitar) and Lincoln Mick (mandolin), and with the support of Erik Coveney on bass and Bailey Warren on fiddle, The Arcadian Wild confidently inhabits and explores an intersection of genre, blending the traditional with the contemporary in order to create a unique acoustic sound that is simultaneously unified and diverse. With one foot planted firmly in choral and formal vocal music, and the other in progressive folk and bluegrass, the band offers up songs of invitation: calls to come and see, to find refuge and rest, or to journey and wonder.
Over the course of 2020, The Arcadian Wild released Principium, a four-movement song-cycle that explores human relationship, flourishing, degradation, and redemption. To help tell this story, the band has collaborated with filmmaker Greyson Welch to create a series of short films to accompany this unique project. The project culminated in the release of the Principium EP in February 2021, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart.

WAX is mostly known as a rapper. He is also a producer, songwriter, singer (kinda), comedian, and all around creative dude. He has been making music for many many years now. Wax's songs have a wide range of styles and cater to many different types of fans and haters. Some are advanced technical displays of rap wordplay, some are heartfelt tales of struggle, some are inspirational numbers containing optimistic advice and/or guidance. I would recommend listening to his music on Spotify or watching his videos on Youtube to become more acquainted.
The combined chemistry of Wrekonize and Bernz, two of hip-hops most dynamic emcees, is what makes ¡MAYDAY! the boundary-bending group it is today. Constantly experimenting, ¡MAYDAY! has paradoxically made never having a definable signature their signature. It’s that visionary work that has resulted in a collaborative track list including Cee Lo Green and Del The Funky Homosapien, gold record “Fragile,” and one of the most iconic project in Strange Music history, a joint effort with label mate MURS aptly titled ¡MURSDAY!. Their fearless commitment to their craft (and love for Jack Daniels) always has fans across the world wondering what the ¡MAYDAY! crew will devise next.

SMILE EMPTY SOUL is a hard rock band that originated in Los Angeles, CA in the late 1990's and has stayed true to their brand of "no bullshit", "real as it gets" hard rock to this day. The band signed a major label record deal in 2003 to release their self-titled debut album in May of that year. They realized huge success at alternative radio, rock radio, and the music video channels that have since fallen by the wayside or turned into reality show networks.
After 3 very successful singles/videos and a gold record from the debut release, the band ran into trouble with their record company (which was in the midst of turmoil at the top levels) and found themselves working extra hard in the trenches, and signed to indie labels or no label at all from them on.
This would become SMILE EMPTY SOUL's destiny, as they have gone on to release many more albums and EP’s on various labels, as well as their own company “smile empty music inc”. The band just released their 9th full length record “Black Pilled” on October 12th of 2021 completely on their own.
“Smile” has become known for its constant touring and never wavering honest sound/lyrics. They've never changed for anybody, and turned down many opportunities to "sell out" because it's not who they are.
With a calendar full of tour dates, a new album, and just as much drive as they had starting out 20 years ago, this band looks to continue to build on the legacy they’ve created as one of the hardest working, and most underrated bands in rock and roll
ABOUT TANTRIC: Louisville-based post grunge rock group Tantric have deﬁned themselves through 6 studio albums as a groove laden, guitar rich rock band with dense vocal harmonies and infectious vocal melodies. Frontman Hugo Ferreira’s unique soulful baritone vocals, ranging from angsty rasps to melodious melancholy are a testament for the signature Tantric sound. Along with the usual intricate guitar work and infectious riﬀs layered over complex textures has become the hallmark of the Tantric sound. Tantric has endured for a career of 20 years, and although band has gone through many label and lineup changes over the years, Ferreira has managed to keep the entity that is Tantric alive and well. “I consider Tantric a boat that I ﬂoat in—it’s a vessel that carries the music. So I never feel restrictions. It doesn’t have any rules. Tantric music can be super-heavy, light–or both It’s really an open book with no ending in sight”, says Ferreira.
Band Members: Hugo Ferreira (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jaron Gulino (bass, backing vocals), Sebastian LaBar (lead guitar, rhythm guitars, backing vocals) and Jon Loree (drums).
