32 CITY TOUR AND STRONG RADIO SUPPORT HERALD DAVID CROWDER*BAND’S RELEASE OF CHURCH MUSIC
The David Crowder*Band countdown to Church Music has begun with weekly singles being released on iTunes. Fans are getting an early dose of Church Music with iTunes releasing a new single from the record every Tuesday in September until the album streets allowing listeners to complete their own album. As of today, three singles have been released including “How He Loves,” “Alleluia, Sing” and “We Are Loved” with a fourth song releasing next Tuesday, September 15, leading up to the full album release on September 22. “How He Loves” has been downloaded nearly 50,000 times since it was released on iTunes on June 30.
These singles are part of the “David Crowder*Band Countdown to Church Music” which topped the iTunes ® Video Podcast charts last week.
On the heels of the highly successful Remedy Club tour which sold out notable clubs and theatres across the US, David Crowder*Band will headline the Church Music Tour with opening acts Danyew and Seabird starting this Oct. Appropriately titled, most of the tour’s 32 stops will take place in churches across the country.
In addition to releasing Church Music, band front man David Crowder and violinist Mike Hogan will launch their book Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven, But Nobody Wants To Die with Zondervan on November 9.
Church Music will mark the David Crowder*Band’s fifth album. To add to the uniqueness of the record, the 17 songs on the album play continuously from beginning to end with one song blending into the next. The result: 73 full minutes of music – 17 tracks, which ably stand alone, while at the same time seamlessly join together.
“We asked ourselves, if we, as a band, were to throw our arms around the popular music of our time, here in 2009, how would we do it,” says Crowder. “We started with the track. We programmed the album first, forcing ourselves to write from the track up, and then, after the song emerged, we dismantled it, replacing much of the programming with live instrumentation but leaving the fundamentals that the song emerged from intact.”
