After months of anticipation, Audio Adrenaline has finally announced their new album Kings & Queens will be released March 12, 2013. “Over 17 years as a band, we’ve sounded different on almost every record. This record keeps pushing and yet thematically and lyrically, it’s dead center where AA always has been,” said Mark Stuart, former lead singer of AA, who is now producing and writing the album.
According to the band, King & Queens is said to be Audio Adrenaline's best and most thought provoking work to date. “Honestly, I feel this is one of the best records, if not THE best, AA has ever put together,” Stuart says of the album. “God gave us songs we could never have written without Him. And it’s not because of the Hands & Feet Project. I know it might sound weird or cliché, but I can sense something really powerful is happening. It’s about bigger themes; it’s about redemption. It’s about the Gospel itself. It’s about inspiring others to dream bigger and to move toward redemption, grace and love, no matter where they are in life.”
He continues: “I was always somewhat motivated by fear of failure and people’s opinions, which is ridiculous. So putting this band back out is pretty intimidating. This isn’t ‘Make a record and do ten shows and see what happens.’ This is a group of men coming together, making a commitment for years to come to do something significant, in terms of music, communication and ministry. It feels right for all of us.”
