THROWBACK ALBUM: MAX | HELL'S KITCHEN ANGEL
Maxwell George Schneider, better known as Max's second studio album is titled "Hell's Kitchen Angel." This blend of pop–with a dash of R&B, alternative, hip hop, and everything in between–is music at its best, not the manufactured over-produced that seems to be churned out at warp-speed these days. His first feature-length album is MAX’s debut album under his current label, DCD2 Records, founded by Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz. Wentz signed MAX to the label in February 2015, and he consequently became one of the opening acts for Fall Out Boy’s Boys of Zummer Tour, along with Wiz Khalifa and Hoodie Allen.
The album also features many other artists. “Gibberish,” which has climbed radio charts, features rapper Hoodie Allen. Other collaborations include those with Lil Uzi Vert in “Wrong” and Sirah in “Mugshot.” The latest hit single off the album is “Basement Party,” which captures the hype of hosting a party in one of the world's most unpredictable and unique cities. MAX certainly plays with many opposing forces in his music. On the one hand, the acoustic tune “Lights Down Low” explores the idea of falling in love and getting to know someone’s true personality. In “10 Victoria’s Secret Models,” MAX serenades a love interest by telling her that she is the only thing on his mind, even if 10 Victoria’s Secret models were to walk into the room.
From covering popular songs on YouTube to acting and writing music for the small screen, it's safe to say that MAX has touched so many parts of the entertainment industry. But he wasn't always meant to be behind the scenes or a supporting character: MAX has a voice all his own.
