Adema announces reunion with original lineup

Frank Mullen/WireImageAdema is back. The band’s original lineup, including lead vocalist Marky Chavez, has announced their reunion

“We are happy to announce that the original ‘classic’ ADEMA lineup of Kris Kohls, Mike Ransom, Dave DeRoo, Tim Fluckey, and YES — MARKY CHAVEZ is in fact, REUNITED!!!” the group writes in a Facebook post. “And it feels so good!”

The reunion will be made official during a show at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles on May 24. They’ll also be “writing and recording a new record soon.”

Adema’s self-titled debut album, featuring the singles “Giving In,” “The Way You Like It” and “Freaking Out,” was released in 2001. Following the release of their 2003 sophomore record Unstable, Chavez, who is the half-brother of Korn‘s Jonathan Davis, left the group. He rejoined the band in 2009, but then left again in 2011.

Following Chavez’s first departure, Adema recorded two more albums: 2005’s Planets and 2007’s Kill the Headlights. They also released an EP in 2013 called Topple the Planets, which featured three new songs plus re-recorded versions of older material.
