After nearly two years and over 150 shows, AUDIO ADRENALINE has announced that KEVIN MAX is stepping down as lead singer of the band. JOSH ENGLER, formerly of the band ABANDON, will replace MAX as the group's new lead vocalist.
This is a mutual decision between KEVIN MAX and AUDIO ADRENALINE. The transition will allow MAX to further pursue solo and creative opportunities through song and word, one of his biggest passions.
KEVIN shares, "It has been an honor and a great privilege to be a part of the work AUDIO ADRENALINE has done these last two years. 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."
AUDIO ADRENALINE co-founding member WILL MCGINNISS shares, "I love KEVIN and it has been nothing but an honor and a joy to get to journey life with him these last two years. During every show I would look across the stage and smile and think "GOD, you are a creative and redemptive GOD. AUDIO A and the HANDS AND FEET PROJECT will be forever grateful to KEVIN. I pray that GOD will continue to use KEVIN in a powerful way through music. He is and always will be a dear brother to us all."
New lead vocalist JOSH ENGLER was ABANDON's lead singer for eight years (2004-2012), leaving that role in 2012 to focus on his family and his church. In 2013, he became the worship arts pastor of BETHEL CHURCH in EVANSVILLE, IN. Now, with the full support of his church leadership he is excited to continue the role that MARC STUART so passionately created before permanently losing his vocal abilities more than seven years ago.
AUDIO ADRENALINE will continue their work with the HANDS & FEET PROJECT, being the voice for orphans in HAITI and around the world. Additionally, through their new partnership with ACQUIRE THE FIRE, they will help provide a renewed worship experience for future ACQUIRE THE FIRE events, and will join its founder RON LUCE in expanding the organization's worship programming. Through the partnership with ACQUIRE THE FIRE, they will also be able to join GLOBAL EXPEDITIONS in bringing groups of missionaries on short-term mission trips to HAITI. Net proceeds from their music sales continue to go to the HANDS FEET PROJECT to continue growth and support for the organization.
The new chapter of AUDIO ADRENALINE has been hard at work writing songs and are currently in the studio working on a new project, slated for release in 2015 by their record label and ministry partner, FAIR TRADE SERVICES.
