Mobile, Alabama - (March 1, 2011) - Releasing today, March 1st is the Know Hope Collective (review), courtesy of Integrity Music. After returning from a three-year hiatus, Audio Adrenaline's Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss joined with some of their favorite emerging voices of worship and partnered with Integrity to create this ground-breaking initiative that combines worship music with stories of hope and inspiration.

Know Hope Collective will continue to be 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. "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."

The talented voices shared on this unique debut project are Everlife's Julia Ross, David Leonard (former Jackson Waters, NEEDTOBREATHE, and currently with Intergrity's Sons and Daughters), and 2010 BMI Christian Music Award-winning Songwriter of the Year Jason Walker. Stuart and McGinnis used more than their musical skills on Know Hope Collective to produce the project along with Josh Heiner.

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

Following "Attention," "Build Us Back" is the project's current radio single, currently at AC, CHR and INSP stations. Charts for many of these songs are currently available, which are listed below.

Know Hope Collective is already featured on, Rhapsody, Christian Retailing, CBA's Retailers + Resources, NewReleaseTuesday's podcast, Breathecast, CCM Magazine, and Focus On The Family's PluggedIn podcast. Upcoming coverage is slated to appear in such outlets as All Access Radio, JesusFreakHideout, ChristianMusicReview, and the Gospel Music Channel. A Know Hope Collective Radio special is set to air exclusively on NRT Radio today as well as on Thursday, March 3rd and Sunday, March 6th.

So what are the critics saying about the new release? Descriptions such as simply flawless, honest and personal worship, infectious, and outstanding are to name a few. Read on....

The Know Hope Collective grew out of Will McGinnis and Mark Stuart's 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," Stuart shares. "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.

“This project was birthed out of the failure I went through," Stuart says. “But the next one might be on missional living, orphan care or clean water, wherever God is leading us.”

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 spring 2011 and will be announced shortly.

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 Song charts are available for the following songs:
