DC Talk's Kevin Max Pays Tribute to Larry Norman with "Revisiting this Planet"

Kevin Max

Kevin Max who is best known for being 1/3 of  the award-winning pop cross over group DC Talk who went on to sell nearly 9 Million records has come full circle with his upcoming release of REVISTING THIS PLANET.  

Larry Norman's 1972 pioneering album ONLY VISITING THIS PLANET was the first of its kind. It was hailed as the first 'Jesus-Rock' album and was added to the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress.  This paved the road for artists in the rock and Christian Music genre. Enter Kevin Max.
In the mid-1990s, Max toured with Norman and covered his songs on the road with his band DC Talk. Norman and Max struck up a friendship, which led Norman to guesting on Max's first solo album STEREOTYPE B, produced by Adrian Belew. After Larry's passing, Kevin decided to re-create the whole album ONLY VISTING THIS PLANET but was sidetracked by other projects. Years later after a kismet meet, Kevin met Larry's son, Mike Norman, at a show in Portland Oregon, which was when Kevin was convinced to finish work on REVISITING THIS PLANET.
Famed multi- instrumentalist John Mark Painter from the critically-acclaimed Fleming & John, has been enlisted as producer and collaborating on this project along with guest appearances from Daniel Smith from Danielson Family, Fleming McWilliams and Mike Norman. 
Max will be releasing focus tracks of The Outlaw with a B-Side, Why Don't You Look Into JesusPardon Me, and God Part IV.  Max penned his response to Norman's God Part III and his reflections on today's politics and faith.    

God Part IV lyrics - song written by Kevin Max
I do believe that I am truly free
Cause I don't worship their politics
I don't believe in forced authority
Or the law that was made into tricks
I don't believe we should ignore the poor
I don't believe in these religious wars
I don't believe in money, power or fame
I can't believe we haven't learned a thing
But I believe In you
I don't believe we're very different
I don't believe in gender judgements
I don't believe we've got the right to kill
It doesn't seem very logical
I don't believe we're alone in the universe
Or that the human race came first
I don't believe in Presidents or King's
I don't believe in much of anything
and yet I believe In You
don't watch TBN or CNBC
don't believe in FOX or MTV
I won't be going to your mega church
prosperity gospel doesn't work
I don't believe in guns or building walls
We're just visiting this planet after all
I don't believe in fear or terrorists
I don't believe in fascists/nationalists
but I believe in you 

Max is taking a break from his solo output by forming the indie rock band Sad Astronauts with long time guitar collaborator Erick Cole. New music from the band as well as a kickstarter campaign starts in early 2021.
