Texas Hard Rock Faves ADAKAIN will be headed to LA on February 1st for one week to track two new songs that were written after their first Mid-West/West Coast headline tour last fall. The band will be using producer and well-known RA frontman Sahaj Ticotin, who has produced and written music for Stitched Up Heart, Starset, and Sevendust. The band has also revealed that they’ll be using mixing guru Ben Grosse (Sevendust, Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin) for the final mastering and mixdown. Look for both songs to appear on a remastered and rereleased version of the band’s 2015 self-released debut Never Coming Home which will be released in May and, feature a few well-known musical guest appearances this time around!
The band is then set to launch into a two-week headliner stint around the Texas/Oklahoma area mid-February and then in March, frontman/guitarist Ryan Ray, Corey Goodwin (guitar/vocals), KC Jenkins (bass/vocals) , and Dan Johnson (drums) will embark on a 2-month, Spring co-headlining tour whose lineup will be officially announced in the coming weeks. That tour will lead to the band’s performance spot at this year’s tour ROCKLAHOMA Axis Entertainment Stage!. The band will close the evening right behind DEF LEPPARD and SOUNDGARDEN.
Nothing defines success in the music industry as forcefully as genuine adoration from a band’s fans to their producers, the radio programmers and label reps who’ve seen, met and continued to be amazed by a steady climb through the ranks. In that regard, Dallas/Fort Worth rockers ADAKAIN are already considered one of the most successful Active Rock acts in the U.S.!
Culminating their individual past experiences from previously signed bands and successful touring phenoms, each member brings top-level performance criteria to the table for a Royal feast of musical brilliance. Spending the last two years touring with National Acts like Taproot, Crossfade, Pop Evil, Korn, Slayer, Marilyn Manson, Killswitch Engage, Trapt, Trivium and fellow-Lone Star brethren Hellyeah & Drowning Pool; the ADAKAIN formula has been tried, tested and successfully gained the attention of radio and a national fan base that is supportive beyond compare!
Now, with a fully remastered re-release of their critically-applauded debut album Never Coming Home which will include mixes by famed producer Ben Grosse (Sevendust, Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin) and production from Sahaj Ticotin (RA, Stitched Up Heart) respectively, ADAKAIN are launching into 2017 with more power than a Dallas oil strike! With regional headline tours that will culminate in their first ever appearance at this year’s ROCKLAHOMA Music Festival; Frontman/Guitarist Ryan Ray exclaims; “Man, this is a dream year we’re coming up on! The whole band is stoked, the music sounds incredible and there’s a whole slew of surprises we’re gonna be throwing in along the way”, he says. “That’s what happens, I guess, when you hire a manager who used to be a professional magician for a living”, Ryan laughs hysterically.
