Adelitas Way About
Adelitas Way is an American hard rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, formed in 2006 by lead singer and writer Rick DeJesus after he moved there from Philadelphia on a dare to audition for a show on VH1. The band name was inspired by a visit to a bar in Tijuana, Mexico that turned out to be a brothel, and the sad stories told by the girls who worked there at the time.
Early shows with Chris Cornell, Hinder and Tantric helped generate enough industry buzz to get the band signed to Virgin Records. The band rose to fame when their debut single “Invincible” was featured on CSI Miami and used as the theme song for the weekly WWE Superstars show in 2009. It became their first of their seven top 10 songs on the US Active Rock Chart over the next ten years. Tours with Guns N Roses, Shinedown, Creed, Alter Bridge, Three Days Grace, Halestorm, Theory of a Deadman, Breaking Benjamin, The Pretty Reckless, and Godsmack have kept the band in the active rock spotlight over the years.
As of 2017, the band has released five studio LP’s with Notorious being their most recent. An EP Live, Love, Life dropped in 2018. A sixth full-length album was expected in 2019, preceded by the release of its lead single “What It Takes”, has not yet materialized.
