Adelaide is a canvas of melody & rhythm that depicts the melding of heart-break and unwavering determination to break the chains of life in a 21st century run-down industrial rust belt town/frozen tundra, laced with hope, love and faith. The songs written on the bands debut release Overtired & Ill Prepared, were written in the dark basement of an abandoned house without heat in the coldest winter months of 2003. It was recorded in the heart of the old, windowless Heinz pickle factory under flickering fluorescent lights. The bands music reflects the Hope that carries the five through the trials of the human experience, and seeks to resonate with the fragility of its listeners amidst the world's expectations to be strong and self-sufficient.
Hailing from Buffalo, NY, Adelaide is full of promise and anticipation for the music lover. Their live performance is gripping and implies to those watching that they should expect more from bands that they have paid hard-earned money to see. They demand a captive audience. The band displays an authentic interest in their listeners that brings a refreshing glance of the humanity and humility in a hard working musical artist who truly realizes that without the fans, there is no-one to play for. They are passionate and driven. They are a relevant musical voice in the noise of todays impersonal faux-teenage angst anthems and recycled middle-school love poem ballads. They seek to restore faith to those who will receive it, and to love those who are unloved. The future of this band will be nothing short of resilient. To quote the Reading Rainbow: dont take my word for it Listen for yourself.
