Audio Adrenaline Partnering with Acquire the Fire & New Album Coming in 2015
Christian rock band Audio Adrenaline has confirmed that they will be working with Acquire the Fire as the house band for several upcoming events and the organization with partner with AA's Hands and Feet project as well.
McGinnis told Jesusfreakhideout, "There are also incredible opportunities for Hands and Feet in the process to have the ATF kids come on mission trips to Haiti and for Mark to potently speak on the subject of missions and the importance of it in our everyday Christian walk. We have always been a band that wanted to take our stage seriously and be incredible role models both as Christians and as musicians in a rock band."
Audio A just under went another big chance as singer Kevin Max stepped down after two years with the band and Josh Engler, who sang previously in Abandon is coming on board full time. McGinnis said the band had been friends with Engler the last few years and feel he is the real deal to takeover as singer of the band moving forward.
The band has announced that they are working on a new album and hope to have it out by early 2015 with current members: McGinniss, Engler, Byers and Larring. This would be to follow-up to the band's 2012 critically-acclaimed release, Kings & Queens. The new album is slated for release in 2015 by their record label and ministry partner, Fair Trade Services. Connect with Audio Adrenaline by visiting AudioA.com.
Audio Adrenaline emerged as one of the most popular CCM acts of the 1990s. The group was formed on the campus of Kentucky Christian College by lead vocalist Mark Stuart, guitarist Barry Blair, bassist Will McGinnis, keyboardist Bob Herdman and drummer Brian Hayes; originally named A-180, they recorded an independent single, "My God," which caught the attention of Forefront Records president Dan Brock, and soon after the label issued Audio Adrenaline's self-titled debut LP. Don't Censor Me followed in 1993, scoring hits with the singles "Big House" and "Can't Take God Away;" after 1995's Live Bootleg, the band resurfaced a year later with Bloom, which debuted in the Top 60 on the Billboard pop charts. In 1997, Audio Adrenaline -- now consisting of Stuart, McGinnis, Herdman and drummer Ben Cissell -- resurfaced with Some Kind of Zombie; Underdog followed two years later. A greatest hits collection, Hit Parade, celebrated almost ten years in the music industry in 2001, and served as a good introduction to the band. Lift came out later that year in November 2001.
