It looks like Adema may have parted ways with frontman Mark Chavez once again. They recently shared a message on social media teasing the release of new music and a “major package tour,” which will reportedly feature Powerman 5000 and (hed)p.e. However, Chavez wasn’t mentioned in the post and he has since been removed from the about section on the band’s Facebook page. Ryan Shuck (Julien-K, ex-Orgy) is rumored to be taking his place.
Adema said the following:
“Hello ADEMA family, friends, and fans!! We can see you noticed some exciting new stuff we started posting late last night (at midnight!!?? Do you guys sleep????). Here’s what we can tell you now: YES, we are hitting North America this summer on a major package tour with some other GREAT bands – all good friends of ours and bands we know you love!
We can see the excitement and speculation in the comments regarding the new photo we posted – and yes, we have some really exciting news to announce very soon – and trust us you will be stoked and super surprised in a GREAT way! We suspect that this news is going to break the internet. Yes, we have plans to release some new music – more on that later.
YES, we will have VIP hangouts available for sale very soon – and YES we will be playing all the songs you LOVE every night.. you will be hearing from us again soon! We love you!
