Kirjoittanut Arto Mäenpää - 21.6.2019

Yhdysvaltalainen raskasta rockia soittava Adema on nimennyt virallisesti uudeksi laulajakseen Ryan Shuckin (Julien-K, Orgy). Ryan korvaa tehtävässä bändin alkuperäisen laulajan, Mark Chavezin, joka jätti yhtyeen vuoden 2017 lopussa. Voit lukea Ryan Chuckin virallisen tiedotteen liittymisestään Ademan riveihin tästä:

”Last year, I was personally engaged in a major effort to put ADEMA back together – the whole band. I spent a lot of time working on this. These guys are my brothers. I love them. ALL of them.

I can be VERY convincing (as Mike Ransom has pointed out in many very funny situations), and I desperately wanted the band to go out on a tour again, make new music, and live the life we all built. I love Marky and I love his voice. I personally talked to him on multiple occasions, sometimes for a few hours, trying to figure out why the band just couldn’t be ’all together’ and tour.

The conclusion of my efforts: Mark DOES. NOT. WANT. TO. DO. ADEMA. PERIOD.

He told me calmly and clearly. He told me point blank. He does not want to sing to this music anymore. So I stopped pushing him and the band, and I went on my merry way to handle my JULIEN-K workload and new album release. I was sad that ADEMA was not going to be out playing for their fans.

Until I got a totally fucking random call from Kris Kohls a few weeks ago which got me wondering… ’Can I go out and perform with my brothers and do an amazing job for the band and the fans?’ ’Can I do the music I love justice?’ ADEMA got offered another great tour with some great bands — and they wanted to do it right. The whole band, with a real frontman that can really ’do it’…. ’Could I do it????’ ’Would I be willing to do it???’ ’Would it be fun?’

The answer is yes. So I am going to do just that. And I’m going to do it with love and gratitude.

I know the ADEMA community has essentially not been able to count on anything solid for… maybe 10+ years? I want to end that. Now.

So, starting this September, I’m going to do ’my thing,’ with my brothers in ADEMA (the entire original band) as they do ’their thing,’ onstage, 5-6 nights a week, throughout the USA, for what may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience: ADEMA + Ryan Shuck. Please join us this fall — it’s going to be amazing.”
