After a seven-year hiatus, Audio Adrenaline is back and will kick off their 2013 “Kings & Queens Tour” on March 1. The tour will run in over 30 cities across the U.S. and is sponsored by ChildFund International. This is the first tour for the band since announcing their return in September 2012. Audio Adrenaline’s Fair Trade Services debut Kings & Queens is slated to release March 12.
The “Kings & Queens Tour” will feature Dove Award winning bands Group 1 Crew and Seventh Day Slumber, as well as Manic Drive, winner of GMA Canada’s 2012 Hard Rock/Alternative Album of the Year.
Band members, Will McGinniss (bass), Kevin Max (lead vocals), Dave Ghazarian (guitar), Jared Byers (drums) and Jason Walker (keys) look forward to taking the stage as a re-formed band with the same heart and energy as before. Audio Adrenaline intends to give fans a heart-pumping show and be the voice for their non-profit, Hands & Feet Project, an organization dedicated to providing long-term, family-style care for orphaned and abandoned children in need of a home and family.
With the anticipated spring tour on the horizon and Audio Adrenaline’s label debut Kings & Queens releasing in March, the band's first radio single “Kings & Queens” is currently available on iTunes. More than 200,000 fans have viewed the song's inspiring official music video that was taped in Jacmel, Haiti at the Hands & Feet Project Children's Village, showcasing the beautiful children of Haiti.

Kicking off March 1st and running through May 31st, the tour will hit across the nation and feature special guests Manic Dive and Ilia.
"We are very excited about 'The Anthem Of Angels Tour'," shares frontman Joseph Rojas. "Our fans have been so supportive over the years, and we can't wait for them to see the NEW show! We will be playing songs off of our past records as well as plenty of new stuff. We are excited to be bringing Manic Drive and Ilia out on the road with us and believe this tour will be a life changing experience for a lot of people! All ages are welcomed. 'The Anthem Of Angels Tour' will be the biggest tour we have done to date production wise!"
Seventh Day Slumber currently has two singles out, ”One Mistake” on Billboard’s Christian CHR Chart and “Wasted Life” at rock radio, which was the track of the newest music video from the band. You can view the video for “Wasted Life” here. Since 2005 when Seventh Day Slumber signed to BEC Recordings, they have not only found chart success and a string of top ten singles, they’ve seen the power of music and the gospel to change lives.
