15 May 2006
Sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records collegiate favorite David Crowder Band prepares to release B Collision: The Eschatology of Bluegrass June 27. The album follows the path of A Collision, which has been 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.
In September 2005 David Crowder Band’s A Collision debuted at No. 39 on the Billboard Top 200, became an iTunes No. 1 hit and launched the top 10 R&R hit single, “Here Is Our King.” Lauded by Billboard, Washington Post, Knight-Ridder, Dallas Morning News, Relevant, CCM, etc., the album also sparked the band’s fastest selling album to date. The recording continues to be a SoundScan Christian Retail sales hit after 31-weeks. The album further captured GMA Music Award honors for Best Rock/Contemporary Album and Best Rock/Contemporary Song (“Here is Our King”).
Recently finishing a hugely successful tour that saw 19 sellouts with Third Day, David Crowder Band has also completed acclaimed tours with Michael W. Smith and MercyMe, as well as continues to be a featured band at the enormously popular collegiate Passion gatherings. Taking inspiration from its engaging live performances and with a full summer festival schedule (see www.DavidCrowderBand.com), David Crowder Band now offers B Collision, an intimate, acoustic version of its parent recording“We prepared and distributed a musical documentation entitled A Collision,” says David Crowder. “It would be rhetorical nonsense to have begun with B Collision. And thus, B follows A. It heaves its inspiration and meaning from what was ordered before it. It consists of a number of songs. Most of them rendered in the acoustical fashion. Simple constructions. Wood and metal strings. Vibrating the air. Some of these songs have been here before. But not presented in this manner. And then something fun happened on tour this fall. A moment of the "LIVE" variety that we insist on sharing.
“And then there is the subtitle,” continues Crowder. “A Collision had a subtitle and B follows A and so B must and does have a subtitle. ‘The Eschatology of Bluegrass.’ Wood and metal singing. Moving the air. Telling of how things will be okay. Regardless of how they seem right now. Something will follow. We are in sequence. And it just so happens we know the beginning and the end.”
B Collision also features the acoustic version of the current A Collision hit single “Wholly Yours,” as well as Crowder with special guests Robbie Seay Band and Shane & Shane on his “Be Lifted” and “I Saw the Light.”
Capturing the attention of such significant media as the New York Times, CNN, FOX News and more, David Crowder Band is known for pushing musical boundaries. The band was the first Christian artist to foster a partnership with M-Audio/Propellerhead’s Reason software and Crowder is the namesake behind premiere guitar maker Tom Anderson Guitarworks’s Crowdster Acoustic and the DCB-inspired guitar, The Atom. David Crowder Band also makes it a point to get back to the church they helped found, University Baptist Church, on most Sundays.
