Former ADEMA Frontman Resurfaces In MIDNIGHT PANIC: Audio Available

Former ADEMA singer Mark Chavez (half-brother of KORN's Jonathan Davis) has resurfaced in a brand-new band called MIDNIGHT PANIC. The band’s self-titled debut album will be released independently in a limited edition of 5,000 copies later in the month, with a full-fledged release to follow in early 2006. Two songs from the upcoming CD — "Give Me One Chance" and "Celebrate" — can be heard online at this location. The album's first single, "Tonight is Our Last Night", is currently in rotation on 106.1 KRAB in Bakersfield, CA.


Mark Chavez - Vocals/Keyboards
Peter Shubert - Guitar
Mike Montano - Bass
Matt Low - Drums

Regarding how the band came together, Chavez recently said, "MIDNIGHT PANIC started on an afternoon out at my studio in Bakersfield. Matt Low started working with me on programing different loops and music, which got things off the ground! I found Matt while producing a band that he was in, we worked really good together. Things just kept getting better and we decided to do a band. The first name we had was STATE OF MIND, but then we found out that there was already a band that had that name so we changed it to MIDNIGHT PANIC. My cousin the guitar player Peter Shubert started coming around and we got some songs together. I liked what he brought to the table because I always wanted a punk feel to the music and that's what he brought! We had a lot of music together but we needed a strong bass player. I called my longtime friend Mike Mantano and he came out to check out the music! He loved it, and ironically Mike was the very first bass player that I had in ADEMA back in 1998. We disbanded that ADEMA in '99 but everything happens for a reason! All of the things that I just said happened in the last 6 months. We worked our asses off and got the record written and recorded! Here we are now and we aren't looking back."
