Lead Single Invincible Featured on ESPN’s Countdown To Monday Night Football

#1 on Billboard’s Regional Heatseekers

Top 10 at Active Rock Radio

LOS ANGELES, CA –Las Vegas rockers, Adelitas Way will hit the road with Breaking Benjamin this winter in support of their self-titled debut, which released July 14th on Virgin/EMI Music and debuted at #16 on Billboard’s Top New Artist Chart. The tour will kick off in San Antonio, TX on Sunday, November 29 and will include a number of radio holiday shows through of Midwest.

The album’s kick off single, the power-rock anthem “Invincible,” has earned #1 Regional Heatseekers in this week’s Billboard and has climbed to top 10 on the Active Rock radio chart. “Invincible” has already been tagged as WWE Superstars theme song, been used for spots promoting the 2009 season of Monday Night Countdown on ESPN and will be used in the new WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2010 Video Game, which hits stores October 20. Since then, the single has been streamed nearly 300,000 times on Adelitas Way’s MySpace page.

Adelitas Way is fronted by singer Rick DeJesus, who grew up in a rough Philadelphia neighborhood that was ravaged by drugs and poverty. In 2005, he seized an opportunity to move to Las Vegas where he met up with lead guitarist Chris Iorio and drummer Trevor Stafford. They were later joined by guitarist Keith Wallen and bassist Derek Johnston when they started to record the album in Chicago. Soon the quintet was opening for artists like Chris Cornell, Hinder and Tantric, generating an impressive industry buzz that resulted in their signing with Virgin.

Produced by the Grammy-nominated Johnny K (Disturbed, Plain White T’s, 3 Doors Down), the band’s debut album is filled with hard, edgy modern rock anthems spotlighting the shredding blues style of teenage axe-slinger Iorio and the propulsive, grunge-like drums of Huntington Beach, CA native Stafford, a veteran of Ozzfest band Shuvel. N.Y. bassist Johnston and West Virginia guitarist Wallen bring a combination of indie, hardcore and classic rock influences to the band’s distinctive sound.

Adelitas Way, whose name comes from an unplanned visit to a Tijuana brothel, is currently on tour with Shinedown and Sick Puppies. You can check out their first single “Invincible” and other music from Adelitas Way on the group’s MySpace page ( and at
