Last week's announcement that drummer Jared Byers was leaving Audio Adrenaline was just the beginning of another massive shake-up of the band, a press release reveals today. 

Founding member of the band Will McGinniss--as well as his supporting cast of Byers, Dwayne Larring and former Abandon lead singer Josh Engler--all have left the band, reflecting the first time Audio Adrenaline has existed without an original member.

Audio Adrenaline 3.0, as it's sure to be called, is now fronted by lead vocalist Adam Agee, who was referred in the band's official press release as the "former Stellar Kart frontman"--reflecting a shake-up in that band as well. In a tweet to a fan today Agee said, "We're going to hit pause on SK for a while."

Joining Agee will be former Wavorly frontman Dave Stovall, guitarist Brandon Bagby and drummer Jack Campbell. 

As for McGinniss, his transition out of the band he started in the early 1990s comes with an increased role in the organization that inspired the band's 2012 comeback. He currently serves as Board President of the band-founded nonprofit orphan care organization Hands and Feet Project.

"The last several years have been an incredible blast and honor," said McGinniss. "To get to bring back Audio A, for one sole purpose--to champion the cause of the orphan and abandoned children through our work at the Hands & Feet Project in Haiti--was incredible. But now God is calling me to a new season in Him off the road. I have every confidence that with this new group of guys and an incredible bunch of new songs, Audio A will be all about that same goal. I pray God's heart and blessing over them."

"Love Was Stronger," the highly-anticipated new single from two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning recording artist and one of Christian music's most popular bands, Audio Adrenaline, drops today, in advance of the May 5 release of the group's Fair Trade Services sophomore album, Sound of the Saints
 


Audiences across the country will be able to preview new music from Audio Adrenaline's Sound of the Saints during Newsboys' "We Believe...God's Not Dead" tour, also featuring Finding Favour and introducing John Tibbs. Sponsored by Food for the Hungry and Liberty University, the tour begins February 12 in Fayetteville, N.C., and will stop in more than 40 cities before concluding May 9 in Greensboro, N.C.
 
"I'm so excited to be a part of the ongoing legacy that is Audio Adrenaline," said new lead singer Agee. "The band was a huge influence on me and my decision to pursue music. My hope is to continue to inspire Audio A fans with new songs we are passionate about. We can't wait to share them live as we hit the road with the Newsboys this spring."
 
Following the band's hiatus in 2007 in the wake of founding lead singer Mark Stuart's vocal health issues, a new lineup of veteran artists rekindled Audio Adrenaline in 2012. Continuing on to answer the band's original call to bring the story of orphans in Haiti--and around the world--to the forefront, Audio Adrenaline partnered with Fair Trade Services and the Know Hope Foundation to release Kings & Queens, which saw multiple radio singles impact listeners, including the smash title-cut. 
 
So what does Stuart think of version 3.0?

"Watching the guys practice for this upcoming tour and record has been such a joy," he said. "Hearing the old classics with the new Audio A message makes me proud to be part of a legacy that continues to focus on the Glory of Christ and the absolute joy of becoming His hands and feet."
