Amidst the speculation and rumors that have been circulating for weeks, Audio Adrenaline is officially back! With the same heart, passion, and infectious musical prowess they developed as a band in the 1990’s, multi-GRAMMY award-winning Audio Adrenaline has re-launched with a new lineup of like-minded musicians sharing the same common goal: to be the voice for orphans in Haiti and around the world. The Know Hope Foundation, supporters of Audio Adrenaline and Hands & Feet Project, as well as Fair Trade Services, have joined them in a renewed mission to fund and market a new record (releasing March 2013) from which net proceeds will go to Hands & Feet Project to continue growth and support of the nearly eight-year-old charity.
So what is the Hands & Feet Project? Five years ago, the band gathered in Hawaii along with their biggest fans for what they thought was their last performance. Since that emotional finale concert, founding members Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss have tirelessly worked to raise awareness and support for the 100 orphans currently being cared for in orphanages in Jacmel and Grand Goave, Haiti .
Now, with additional new band members and a larger mission goal, there is no question the world is ready for the “new” Audio Adrenaline. Stuart and McGinniss are still very much a part of the re-formed band. McGinniss continues his role as the band’s bassist while Stuart, although stepping down as lead vocalist due to his spasmodic dysphonia, causing involuntary muscle spasms of the larynx, is very much a part of band decisions and writing on many of the songs for the new album. Taking over lead vocals is former dcTalk member and industry mainstay Kevin Max, while CCM vets Dave Ghazarian (Superchick) is on guitar, Jared Byers (Bleach) is the band’s drummer, and singer-songwriter Jason Walker plays keys.
“Kings & Queens” is the album’s first single and “it’s just an incredible song about this idea of when we love the least of these, God wraps these little orphans in his majesty and they can become kings and queens,” shares Mark Stuart. “It gives you that idea that these are God’s favorites, these little kids that have been forgotten. There’s going to be a special place in heaven one day because of what they’ve been through here. It’s just a triumphant, majestic song that just connects so deeply with Hands & Feet and the message of Audio A right now.”
The official music video – which was taped in Jacmel , Haiti at the Hands & Feet Project Children’s Village – showcases the beautiful children of Haiti .
