Hard rock act Adema has slated an Aug. 19 release for its second full-length Arista album, "Unstable." The set was produced by Howard Benson (P.O.D., Cold), and will be preceded by the self-titled first single, which will be sent June 23 to U.S. radio stations for airplay consideration.

"There are very personal demons that were dealt with in making the record," singer Mark Chavez says in a statement. "And as artists, we took big chances on songs like 'So Fortunate,' which is about my newborn son, and 'Let Go.' My favorite song would be 'Codependent,' which deals with every human being's vices."

The 12-track "Unstable" is the follow-up to the band's self-titled debut, which peaked at No. 27 on The Billboard 200. The album has sold about 644,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan, and has spawned the radio singles "Freaking Out," "Giving In," and "The Way You Like It."

Adema has already launched a six-week tour, which plays Colorado Springs, Colo., tonight (June 6). The trek will keep the band on the road through a July 12 show in West Hollywood, Calif.

Here is the full "Unstable" track list:

"Codependent"
"Rip the Heart Out of Me"
"Stand Up"
"Unstable"
"Promises"
"Blame Me"
"So Fortunate"
"Stressin'"
