Kevin Max Leaves Audio Adrenaline To Continue Solo Career With New Single & Album Announced

Jun 05 2014

After taking over as lead singer of the band Audio Adrenaline nearly two years and over 150 shows ago, Kevin Max has announced that he is stepping down from the band to continue his solo career. Josh Engler, formerly of the band Abandon, will replace Max as the group's new lead vocalist.

"It has been an honor and a great privilege to be a part of the work Audio Adrenaline has done these last two years," Max shares. "Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss have always been close friends of mine, and this chapter of our lives in service together has been beautiful. I look forward to continually being involved in the Hands and Feet Project and also as a creative ally in anything Audio Adrenaline does in the future."

In an open letter, Max explained the reasons behind his decision. "When I was informed that Audio Adrenaline was moving forward into more of a 'Worship Music' direction, I had initial feelings of confusion and doubts. However, I truly believe that whatever the band decides to do, they will have meaning in God's kingdom as they are men with pure hearts. I had to be honest with myself accepting that my calling was not in this specific form.

God has wired me as an artist and given me a desire to create music in many different genres. I move forward now to be a steward of what He has given me, and through faith I am believing He has lead me again to a career in solo music. I support and stand behind my former bandmates and consider myself an ally and a friend both personally and musically."

Max was formerly a member of one of Christian music's most ground breaking bands, dc Talk. When the group dissolved he spent a decade in solo music. Relaunching that solo career, Max has announced plans for a new album titled 'Broken Temples'.

"I am proud to announce the lead single from my upcoming album 'Broken Temples'", writes Max. "It is a song about the beauty, mystery and perfection that is our God-it is called 'INFINITE.' It will be available on iTunes on June 10."
