Three simple words describe the bold and innovative career of dPulse artist Kevin Max: Strength Through Reinvention.

That will certainly be evident in the forthcoming dPulse release Cotes d Armor, announced today for an April 27, 2010 worldwide release.

Foreshadowed by the recent digital maxi-single Traveler (Mora Brothers Remixes), Cotes dArmor finds Kevin Max exploring new territory, while also staking his claim to the province of intelligent, searingly personal rock that has always been his own.

Featuring brand-new tracks produced by mega-producers Tedd T and Lynn Nichols of LYNTT Productions  as well as radical re-workings of tracks originally released on 2008s Crashing Gates – Max teams up with legendary UK electronica band Pop Will Eat Itself, plus label mates and collaborators 3kStatic for this electronically-charged new release.

In a move some may see as reminiscent of Bowie and Peter Gabriel, its the strength of reinvention that has empowered Kevin Max to seamlessly move, combine or shift genres almost at will  as listeners will discover first-hand when Cotes dArmor drops April 27, 2010. They will also discover the same presence that helped propel DC Talk to fame as a GRAMMY©-winning, multi-platinum super-bandonly considerably evolved and perpetually reinvented.

Kevin Max will continue to announce an aggressive series of select live dates throughout 2010 in support of Cotes dArmor. For management & booking inquiries, please contact Greg Carnes Productions at 210-858-5904 or email
