Kevin Max is already moving full steam ahead on the production of his new solo album, Broken Temples, which includes a new music video for his recently released single, "Infinite."

The singer--who recently announced his departure from the relaunched Audio Adrenaline--talked with NRT about his new music, reasons behind his going solo again, and the future.

Last week, Max noted that the lead single from the forthcoming album wasn't indicative of how the entire record would sound.

"'Infinite' is one side of a many-sided project," he said. "The rest of the album... goes all over the place." He said that in addition to the single's acoustic, throwback sound, there would be elements of dance, rock and other styles. He hinted at an August release for Broken Temples.

With regard to leaving Audio Adrenaline, Max says there's no controversy or bad blood with the band, and that at the end of the day, it just came down to direction.

"They wanted to go in more of a direction of vertical songwriting," Max told NRT. "I'm kind of a creative spirit, and I feel like I needed a little more space to write things I feel like went beyond that idea."

He noted that as he began the songwriting process for Audio Adrenaline's second album with Max at the helm, the thematic direction didn't seem to match up with the more worship-oriented path the band was heading towards.

Those songs Max wrote for that second album, it appears, will see the light of day as his new solo record.

"We sat down and prayed about it," Max said of the decision to part ways. "We really went to God with it. We wrestled for a little bit. I love the guys in the band, and I wish them the best."

He added that he plans to continue his support of the Hands & Feet Project--the nonprofit organization started by the original Audio Adrenaline.

But what about a dcTalk reunion?

"DcTalk needs to come around again for the fans," he said. "I feel like we owe that to the people who have been listening to dcTalk over the years."
