About Adelitas Way.

Adelitas Way is an American hard rock band formed in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, in 2006.

The band began working on their debut album in the fall of 2008. After inking with Virgin Records, Rick DeJesus, and drummer Trevor Stafford headed for Groovemaster Studios in Chicago, Illinois where producer Johnny K awaited their arrival. Before the band started touring in support of their new record, the band expanded with the additions of bassist Derek Johnston and additional guitarist, Keith Wallen, completing the original line up. On April 17, 2009 the band released their debut single "Invincible" which, became the official theme song for WWE Superstars on WGN America as well as being featured in the Smackdown vs. Raw 2010 video game, MTV as well as the CSI Miami Finale.

About Savage After Midnight.

Dogged perseverance and unyielding determination are qualities shared by countless bands struggling to break out from their hometown club scene and onto the arena stage.  Memphis, Tennessee quintet Savage After Midnight have exhibited far more patience and dedication than most as they’ve geared up for their debut EP release, “11:59” on RED Music/The Century Family on March 8th, 2019.

Since the band members formed in 2009, Savage After Midnight have been sidetracked by an obligatory name change, a studio fire, scrapped recordings from different producers, a crippling lawsuit they had nothing to do with and an 11th hour record label change.  We’ve been put through the wringer, man,” says vocalist Shi. “We’ve totally been fed through it. If it’s true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger than we must be the strongest band in the world.”

The years of trial and error, and even more years of being uprooted and returning to square one made Savage After Midnight a more professional band, improving their chemistry and allowing them to fine tune their presentation both live and in the studio. The band connected with producer John Falls (Egypt Central) and recorded what would become the “11:59” EP. The band’s “work-hard-by-day, rock-harder-by-night” ethos is poured into a collection of songs that are an energized, emotional introduction to musicians that desperately want to make a mark, but only on their own terms. S.A.M. music is aggressive, but still has pop sensibilities. The tracks are colored by galvanic hard rock passages, a contrast of screamed melodies and soaring hooks, and it’s augmented by electronic segments that give the band a modern edge.


“10 Feet Tall,” the first single and video release from the EP is already making inroads at SiriusXm Octane and Music Choice.  It’s anthemic and energizing, building from a melodic verse, through a propulsive bridge and into an unforgettable chorus. “Unleash,” the opening cut on the EP, is a message of empowerment in the face of adversity, driven forward by steady backbeats, chugging guitars and electronic effects. “Heartless Machine” is an intense song about soldiers who are sent to war and desensitized, trained so that they will obey commands that civilians never have to contemplate.

Savage After Midnight has toured with Shinedown, Sick Puppies, and Story of the Year.  They are setting up the release of “11:59” with a leg of East Coast dates opening for Pop Evil.  More tour dates are being confirmed, and the band also has additional songs recorded for another EP to be released in late 2019 or early 2020.

Living up to the band’s name, leader Shi admits: “We all like to get wild.  There’s something savage about us when it comes to throwing down and partying – it’s just who we are. We work really hard, but at the end of the day we’re down for a good time. We’ll put on whatever work hat we have to, but once it strikes midnight it’s our time and it’s time to tear it up.” 2019 will be the year that Savage After Midnight tears through the rock world and at long last, makes it mark.


About Taking Dawn.

The band was originally named 7th Son in tribute to the iconic Iron Maiden album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son before calling themselves Taking Dawn.

The band signed to major American record label Roadrunner Records in 2009. Taking Dawn toured throughout 2010 and performed alongside Airbourne, Kiss, Slash, Trivium, All That Remains, Halestorm, DragonForce and Theory of a Deadman among others. Taking Dawn also performed at many festivals including Download in Europe and Soundwave in Australia.

In late 2010 drummer Alan Doucette left the band due to trouble on the road and was replaced by Carlo Mazzone. In 2013, guitarist Mikey Cross announced on his personal Facebook account that the band was finished and its members were all pursuing different musical ventures, however this was not acknowledged nor corroborated by the rest of the band.

Taking Dawn has since re-branded themselves under the new moniker Devils Run and released a number of new songs including "Burn the Night Out" and "Secrets".
