Taking their name from a mythical phoenix-like songbird in Filipino folklore, The Adarna [pronounced uh-darn-uh] are the first band to ever coin their genre as “Jet City Rock.”
Four years out of the gate and The Adarna have completed 6 North American national tours while averaging 80-120 shows a year. Their summer 2016 national tour, The Jet City Tour, was to support the release of their recent album, How Perceptive. In Dec 2015 - Jan 2016, they were honored to perform internationally for the US troops in 5 countries in SW Asia as part of their Project Gratitude Tour.
The Seattle Weekly suggests that The Adarna are “melodic, polished, and destined for rock radio.” The band has been featured on MTV, Myx TV, M&L TV and about 220+ media outlets/radio worldwide including Fox stations, Sirius XM, Armed Forces Radio, and Harley-Davidson retail. The Adarna’s music videos are being aired in 78 countries and amassed an incredible 12K fan base in a short period of time.
Their most recent single, “Superman,” gained much success in anime and comic fandom. This resulted in the placement of the song in a new superhero video game by Risen Phoenix Studios as well as earning nominations for Best Music Video at the Fanboy Film Festival.
Their first single, “Honestly”, aired to an audience of 10 million households on MYX TV, one of the largest Asian-American networks (ABS-CBN). The band earned this opportunity by being voted into the top 6 finalist.
This fiery, dynamic, and high-energy sound comes from a concoction of influences from old school rock-n-roll such as The Cult and Guns N Roses to modern rock such as Foo Fighters, Sick Puppies, Halestorm, Queens of the Stoneage, and 30 Seconds to Mars.
They’ve shared stages with names like Hedwig and The Angry Inch, Smile Empty Soul, Art of Dying, Fail Safe Project, The Slants, The Crying Spell, The Cliks, Bobaflex, Ionia, Uzuhi, Peelander Z, Windowpane, and Burning Daylight (Lords of Acid, Powerman 5000, Cage 9 & Ministry).
Tastes Like Rock Magazine states The Adarna are “rising stars of modern rock who will find their way to the top of the heap of bands out there, so make sure you keep an eye out for them. Whether you are hard core rockers or alt or punk or even dance pop, you will love the Adarna.”

#TBT Last Christmas we were on our Project Gratitude Tour in SW Asia. 30 hours of travelling later we climbed off our plane weary and wiped. Suddenly another burst of energy hit us as we were greeted by the smiling soldiers. A quick visit to the mess hall, soundcheck, and an hour nap and we took the stage! Project Gratitude was an amazing experience for us and we can thank the troops, AFE, and our sponsors enough for one of our favorite tours. #theadarna #jetcityrock #afe
