Know Hope Collective, the ground-breaking initiative combining worship music with stories of hope and inspiration, has a new release date. Just announced from Integrity Music is that the project will now release March 1st. It was originally slated for a February 15th street date.

ABOUT KNOW HOPE COLLECTIVE
After a three-year departure, Audio Adrenaline lead singer Mark Stuart and bassist Will McGinniss partnered with Integrity Music and were joined by some of their favorite emerging voices of worship to create the ten-track album, Know Hope Collective. According to Stuart and McGinniss, the Know Hope Collective is an ever-changing group of musicians from a variety of backgrounds who come together to create worship music while sharing their unique experiences and testimonies. Know Hope Collective was produced by Stuart, McGinniss and Josh Heiner.

“The Know Hope Collective is driven from an emerging style of worship and a place of vulnerability,” explains Stuart. “We go on a journey together through the good, bad and ugly to the redemptive side.” Stuart says the Know Hope Collective grew out of their own cathartic experience of sharing life stories with friends and church members.

“We’d meet at Will’s around a campfire and talk vulnerably with each other about our successes as well as hardships. It was a time of healing and redemption as we discovered the evidence of God’s hand in our lives like never before and the importance of telling one’s story.”

The duo’s pastor urged them to initially take their story-telling on the road, creating an intimate and hope-filled night of music, testimony and worship with friends. Since then, the Know Hope Collective has appeared across the U.S. and Canada. Additional tour plans are slated for this spring.
For the Know Hope Collective CD, Stuart speaks far more now than he sings, and shares the microphone with Julia Ross (of popular Disney group Everlife), David Leonard (former Jackson Waters, NEEDTOBREATHE and currently with Sons and Daughters), and 2010 BMI Christian Music Award-winning Songwriter of the Year Jason Walker.

The group introduces new cuts, including “Jealous God,” the radio singles “Attention” and “Build Us Back,” along with meditative reworks of Audio A hits like “Ocean Floor,” “The Good Life,” and “Hands and Feet.”

Following “Attention,” “Build Us Back” is the project’s next radio single, just released December 27th to AC, CHR and INSP stations.

The enhanced CD includes videos where the Know Hope Collective artists share their personal stories of hope. The project also links to additional content, including information about Hands & Feet, a ministry founded by Stuart and McGinniss to aid orphans and abandoned children.
Additional information, including an EPK is available at knowhopecollective.com. Song charts are available as free downloads at integritymusic.com/knowhopecollective.
