Fledgling band, The Digital Age, created by former members of David Crowder*Band recently released two videos on their official Youtube page showcasing live footage from some of their rehearsals at the group’s recording studio Asterik Sound in Waco, Texas.
Yesterday the band uploaded two covers of Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” and “All the Poor and Powerless” by worship duo All Sons and Daughters. More music is soon to follow according to the video description which says:
“Live footage from our recent rehearsals at our studio in Waco, Texas. We’ll be releasing more of these in the coming weeks, so be sure to subscribe.”
This could mean that the band will only be releasing covers of songs in the near future, or could reveal original tracks, or a combination of the two. On the music tab of the band’s official website it says:
“While we were rehearsing, we began getting emails and tweets from people wondering what we sound like, so we decided to document the process. We’ll start posting these “rehearsals” regularly. Enjoy!”
The Digital Age’s line up consists of former David Crowder*Band bassist Mike Dodson, guitarists Mark Waldrop and Jack Parker, and drummer Jeremy “B-Wack” Bush. It appears that Mike is now the band frontman, although this is just speculation at the time. Each band members returns as a multi-instrumentalist although it appears that each will once again be playing his respective main instrument from their role in DCB.
The Digital Age formed earlier this year following David Crowder*Band’s The 7 Tour and subsequent breakup. The band website went online in early January; a few updates were posted showing videos and pictures of the construction of Asterisk Sound studio. Although there is a music and videos tab on the website, no music was released until yesterday.
According to the Contact page of the website, the group is currently signed with Paradigm CCM, the same company that DCB frontman David Crowder’s new project Crowder is signed with.
The site received so much web traffic following the release of the music videos that it crashed for some time earlier today. The band twitter replied to the incident later saying:
You guys crashed our site!#EPIC#SORRY#TRYINGTOFIXIT
