As the David Crowder*Band has now put a period at the end of its sentence, a new chapter is emerging for front-man, David Crowder. As the next paragraph begins, David Crowder will take the stage performing with his new collective, simply called, Crowder. Fans can expect more of what they’ve always loved about Crowder through the years – the songs, the worship, musical innovation – and now they get to be a part of the new beginning. Crowder’s debut album, Neon Steeple, is set to release February 2014 with the Neon Steeple tour launching alongside it with guests All Sons & Daughters and Capital Kings.
Named among the “most thoughtful, progressive and exciting acts in contemporary Christian music” by The New York Times, the popular yet unconventional David Crowder*Band unveiled their final collection of new music this year with the release of Give Us Rest or (a requiem mass in c [the happiest of all keys]). As the follow-up to the GRAMMY ® nominated Church Music, Give Us Rest gave the band the highest debut of their career selling over 50,000 units in one week, landing them in the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Top 200. David Crowder*Band’s music video for “SMS (Shine)” nabbed coverage on NBC’s The Today Show, Fox & Friends, USA Today, Billboard and Paste Magazine online as well as a GMA Dove Award win for “Short Form Video of the Year.” The video was also recognized at the LA Film Festival in 2011.
