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.  To visit, the podcast link go to: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=329417555.

David Crowder*Band with opening acts Danyew and Seabird will take the Church Music tour to 32 cities and churches nationwide starting on October 1. The tour will begin on the heels of an outstanding pre-sale with thousands of tickets sold in advance, giving fans who purchased them first access to the front seats at every date this fall.

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.


Less than two weeks before David Crowder*Band unveils their 17-track recording Church Music, David Crowder gives you an original introduction to their newest album releasing on September 22 at the band’s home church in Waco, Texas.


In support of the album, the band is also embarking on the 32-city Church Music Tour and releasing a single from the new record on iTunes ® every Tuesday leading up to the release.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
