Biography

On their third album, Adelitas Way intensify their brand of hard-edged rock with a tighter songwriting sensibility and more brutally raw energy than ever before. To create the album, the Las Vegas-based quartet joined forces with Nick Raskulinecz (a Grammy-winning producer who’s previously worked with artists like Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, and Queens of the Stone Age) and holed up ...

Editorial Reviews

2011 sophomore album from the Las Vegas-based Alt-Rockers. Home School Valedictorian defines and hones in on the quartet's sound. The 11-track album definitely achieves the type of 'next level' sound the band strived for. Singles 'Sick', 'The Collapse' and 'I Wanna Be' are loaded with heavy guitar riffs layered under the intense unrivaled sound of DeJesus' lead vocals. Home School Valedictorian was recorded in 2010 at Malibu's Chateau Relaxo Studio, the album was produced by Dave Bassett (Shinedown, Josh Groban, Halestorm) and engineered by Tadpole (Disturbed, Finger Eleven).

I quickly fell in love with this cd and downloaded their first one as well.

Adelita's Way had quite a bit to follow up considering their debut album contained track after track of great music.
P. Bowen
I would highly recommend this album to people who are exploring hard/soft rock.

Adelita's Way had quite a bit to follow up considering their debut album contained track after track of great music. It amazes me that more people have not heard of this band. For those fans of melodic rock, similar to Daughtry except with a bit more of an edge, Adelita's Way is the holy grail. Rick DeJesus and his fellow bandmates do a great job of hitting the rock tunes, like the debut single "Sick", in such a way that you quickly get hooked. Where Adelita's Way really sets themselves apart, however, is with their more emotionally charged ballads and mid-speed tunes. Home School Valedictorian delivers these songs in spades. "Alive", "Good Enough" and the power ballad "Hurt" prove that this band deserves everything good that happens to them. Great music that I would highly recommend to anyone. Cant wait to see them live when they come to our town in September.

Adelitas Way hasn't even released their third album yet, and it's already positive that they've avoided the jinx. This album is full of high energy hard rock, with my favorite track, The Collapse, and other great tracks such as the single Sick, and cuts Move, Somebody Wishes They Were You, and I Can Tell. Adelitas Way is definitely here to stay.

I kind of stumbled across these guys browsing through Amazon reviews one night,and after reading all of the positive reviews,I thought,for 5.00$,what have I got to lose? It is well worth that and then some as they have a solid sound throughout,doing everything from power to ballads,and it all comes together very nicely. Even if you are a fan of the 80's/Classic scene,newer bands such as Alter Bridge/Shinedown/Breaking Benjamin,or into the more melodic side of things,there is something here for everyone. These guys are definitely worth a listen. I guarantee you it won't be your last.

Discovered this band at a festival while going to see Staind and I just loved them. Loved them so much that I bought both albums off Amazon at once. Great band and music!

A relative newbie to all things Adelitas Way - I have been rocked to my core - love love love it all!!!
It would be impossible to pick a favourite song from the album because this is one of those rare albums that you can put on the stereo or in the car and just leave to play without skipping through to find the good ones - they are all good.
Awesome work guys!!
