(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) July 11, 2008— sixstepsrecords’ David Crowder*Band will release the REMEDY Club Tour CD/DVD to retail on Aug. 19. The band’s first ever full-length DVD features five and a half hours of content, including a behind the scenes tour documentary, song demonstrations hosted by each member of the Crowder band and chord/lyric subtitles in addition to 16 songs recorded live on last fall’s best-selling “REMEDY Club Tour.”
“This tour was so amazing for us,” says David Crowder. “Many of our beliefs converged regarding music’s role in the church and the unexpected spaces our faith can function in. We believe that there is no space that is not sacred, that every second is lived in the very presence of God, and we wanted people to experience this reality, which, lead us to transporting these songs into places perhaps unexpected. The response was fantastic. To be in these historic Rock-and-Roll venues and watch the story of God come alive night after night was unbelievable. And then, to have captured that on tape, to have a document composed of these magical evenings is just ridiculous.”
The fall 2007 “REMEDY Club Tour” boasted 19 sold-out dates, and its “Surely We Can Change Something” campaign collected thousands of towels and socks for local shelters, while encouraging attendees to “be the Remedy” in their local communities. Fans can now bring that experience home, enjoying a full 85-minute concert recorded at both the New York City and Atlanta tour stops. The concert will premier for one-night-only at select movie theatres nationwide in partnership with AEG Network Live. Additional details are forthcoming.
“David Crowder*Band consistently delivers one of the best live shows in music,” says Leisa Byars, EMI CMG VP, Marketing & Artist Development. “The Remedy Club Tour Edition was created for the many people who love the live Crowder show experience. Partnering with AEG at a national level and radio in local markets, enables us to place this compelling show on the big screen across the country and allows the band's music to continue to impact lives and communities.”
Shot with nine cameras in two cities, the DVD features 5.1 surround sound, a 15-minute exclusive tour documentary “On The Road With David Crowder Band” as well as “Learning the Songs,” a section hosted by each band member showing fans their setup and gear used in each song along with a how-to lesson on playing the songs exactly like the David Crowder*Band. Taking it even further, the DVD features the ability to display chord/lyric subtitles so that fans can test their skills and play along with the tour night.
The REMEDY Club Tour CD/DVD includes the tracks, “I’m Trying to Make You Sing,” “The Glory Of It All,” “Can You Feel It?,” “Everything Glorious,” “…neverending…,” “Here is Our King,” “You Are My Joy,” “We Won’t Be Quiet,” “Foreverandever Etc..,” “A Beautiful Collision,” “Never Let Go,” “Remedy,” “I Saw the Light,” “No One Like You,” “O Praise Him,” and “Surely We Can Change.”
The band’s first studio recording since A Collision in 2005, REMEDY is a continuation of its predecessor, offering ten accessible, pop-centric tracks that dive deep into the theology of worship. In addition to having already sold more than 170,000 copies, the album produced radio hit “Everything Glorious” and earned three 2008 GMA Dove Awards for Rock Contemporary Recorded Song (“Everything Glorious”), Praise & Worship Album, and best Recorded Music Packaging.

After the David Crowder Band was voted MSN’s Artist of the Year 2006, MSN noted, “They’ve single-handedly redefined what contemporary Christian music should sound like…” The group’s last record, A Collision, was widely regarded as one of the best albums of 2005, receiving five-star reviews and comparisons to groundbreaking albums of the past and artists such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams. The album further garnered an iTunes No. 1, debuted at No. 39 on the Billboard Top 200 and received GMA Music Dove Award honors for Best Rock/Contemporary Album and Best Rock/Contemporary Song (“Here is Our King”). Featured at the enormously popular collegiate Passion gatherings, the band also makes it a point to get back to the church they helped found, University Baptist Church, on most Sundays. Crowder is further an acclaimed author, having penned two books, including his acclaimed, highly personal, Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven, But Nobody Wants to Die: Or (The Eschatology of Bluegrass).
