Grammy Award-winning rock band Audio Adrenaline is gearing up for their upcoming Until My Heart Caves In 20-plus-city major market tour. The band, who will be touring in support of their ninth studio album Until My Heart Caves In, will be joined on the tour by some of the top rock and alternative acts in the industry today including Ficker Records Pillar and Kids in the Way, Inpops Superchic[k], and Sparrow Records Sanctus Real.
This is the perfect Audio Adrenaline tour, and is the premiere mainstream Christian rock tour of the season, adds Mike Snider, Third Coast Artists Agency president. It features a stellar line up of top artists that will offer a high-energy, fun tour in great rock venues across the country for a remarkably low price that fans and youth pastors alike will appreciate.
Until My Heart Caves In is about living for God until your body collapses; its about never giving up, says Audio Adrenaline lead singer Mark Stuart. We should be worried less about the nice clothes and plastic personas and more about getting on the edge, living with authentic and real passion. This upcoming tour will challenge attendees to live like warriors and to be genuine in their relationships, faith and lifestyles.
A current listing of tour dates and venues can be found below.
Until My Heart Caves In, which is scheduled for release on August 30, saw Audio Adrenaline teaming with a predominantly mainstream producer for the first time, Jay Joyce (Patty Griffin, The Wallflowers, Iggy Pop, Macy Gray). The band credits Joyce for really capturing the Audio Adrenaline sound, in some ways for the very first time.
The musics got attitude, its got teeth and were all taking a big step forward, definitely moving on with less complacency, says Audio Adrenaline guitarist/vocalist Tyler Burkum. Sometimes you make a record and feel like youve passed over what its saying by the time it come out, but this one really does feel where were at right now within our hearts.
The albums first single, King was the number one added song at CHR/AC radio combined in its first week of release. The song is currently available for download at the iTunes online store.
Heres what Robert K. Oermann of DISClaimer had to say about King:
The bands new CD drops August 30th. If the rest of it sounds like this superb single, it will be a major listening experience. The relentless rhythm quickens the pulse, the soaring, heartfelt vocal goes straight to the soul and the ringing guitars fire the brain. Grade A.
Also happening this August, Audio Adrenaline frontman Mark Stuart and his Victory motorcycle will be embarking on Hands & Feet Across America, a coast-to-coast fundraising campaign designed to raise support for The Hands & Feet Project an orphanage Audio Adrenaline is building from the ground up.
Beginning August 15 in West Palm Beach, FL, Mark will travel 3,000 miles, visiting dozens of radio stations along the way, before reaching his final destination of Sacramento, CA on August 26. The radio station whose listeners raise the most support for The Hands & Feet Project will win a free Audio Adrenaline concert for the town.
