Kevin Max of DC Talk and the voice behind Audio Adrenaline’s hits “Kings & Queens” and “Believer” has announced a Pledge Music campaign that will bring a remastered version of his 2001 solo debut album STEREOTYPE BE to vinyl. The drive has a slew of amazing perks that pledgers can claim ranging from signed vinyl copies of STEREOTYPE BE to overnight stays and horseback riding at Max’s BLIND THIEF FARM just outside of Nashville. One highly anticipated perk is a download of new acoustic versions of songs from the album recorded with longtime Max writing/playing partner Erick Cole that will be available in some packages. Take a look for yourself at what is available at Max’s Pledge Music page.
Kevin Max’s newest project, BROKEN TEMPLES, will officially be released on March 10. I’ll be counting down the remaining days to the release of the album on this page with a post each day exploring and celebrating some of his prior creative ventures.
Today we take a leap from yesterday’s FREE AT LAST-JESUS FREAK/dcTalk-era to Max’s first solo album STEREOTYPE BE. The release of the album was a bold statement as Max cut no corners and made no compromises with the product that he put out. He assembled an amazing set of players and unleashed a stylistic juggernaut that offered no apologies while blazing his own trail away from the strategic tones that he, along with TobyMac and current Newsboys frontman Michael Tait, used to achieve unprecedented success coming out of the Christian market as dcTalk. Featured here is the lead video from STEREOTYPE BE, “Existence.”
