Magnolia, TX’s Adelaine will release their new LP Currents on April 30th, 2013 via Mosaic Artistry Group. The band’s new single “Bad Blood” will be hitting Rock/Alternative radio on March 15th and will be available for download on iTunes.
Few bands can say that their single launched into the top ten of the Billboard Rock Charts right out of the gate, let alone staying in the charts for a collective 40 weeks after getting there. Mosaic Artistry Group’s female fronted rock band Adelaine can make that claim. The band’s first Billboard top ten hit single, “Do or Die,” catapulted them into rotation with well-established artists like POD and Switchfoot, and gained them fans instantly. Their follow up single and title track of their debut EP, Take Heart, proved to continue their radio success, peaking at 12 on the Billboard Rock Chart and staying in the top 30 for 20 weeks.
The Texas based rock band formed from a group of high school friends that discovered they equally shared a passion for music and that their own stylistic expression blended perfectly. Only after high school did the band realize they were missing something, or as it later became clear, someone. Lead singer, Stormy Piña explains, “I was in another band at the time and they kept asking me to audition for them. I finally did, and it just clicked. It was meant to be.”
Adelaine’s sound is a brilliant mix of beautiful vocals, complicated guitar riffs and harmonies that most bands would never attempt. Stormy’s honesty about her inner battles with all the complexities of life comes through in not only the strength of her voice but also in her ability to translate that musically for vast audiences to relate to. “We have upbeat songs but we also have a darker, emotional side.” Stormy said. “We want people to know that we have been where they are and there is hope on the other side.”
Donny Bayless, guitarist for Adelaine, agreed. “We want people to hear the songs the way their heart takes it and be impacted. Above all, we want to be a positive influence.”
Adelaine’s sophomore album, Currents, has grown in depth of content much like the Houston natives themselves. The album was written with an emphasis on real life relationships. It focuses on the twists and turns that challenge us to forgive and overcome despite betrayal and disappointments. The first single to be released is Bad Blood, an up-tempo song about the complexities of relationships, betrayal and the battle for forgiveness that has Stormy doing what she does best: carving a well deserved niche in the rock scene and blowing expectations away.
The band is captivating with their melodic rock and riveting stage presence and is committed to sharing equality in the creative process with each other. “There aren’t any hired guns here.” Stormy said. “We are a perfect blend of harmonious parts. Everybody has a say in the creative writing process and musical composition.” This is evident, as all of the elements combined establish the genius of what Adelaine embodies.
They can only go up from here and they are completely ready to do so. Since the band signed with Mosaic Artistry Group, they have shared the stage with such bands as Go Radio, SafetySuit, Sent by Ravens and South Bound Fearing, toured extensively in 2012 across the Country and had two Billboard hit singles.
