Fair Trade band The Digital Age released their debut studio album Evening:Morning today, August 13. The four-piece, Waco, TX based group, made up of Mike Dodson (Mike D), Mark Waldrop, Jack Parker and Jeremy Bush (Bwack), formerly of the GRAMMY®-nominated David Crowder*Band, have officially entered a new musical era with the album release that has been called “one of the most anticipated albums of the year (Indie Vision Music).” The album launches The Digital Age into their post-David Crowder*Band career and continues the original vision and ministry that inspired them to create music in the first place.
Engaging with their active fan base that have followed the band members throughout their multi-decade career, The Digital Age invited fans to be apart of their first official music video for the lead single off of Evening:Morning, “Captured.” The single is already making an impact at radio, currently being played on AIR1 Radio Network, SpiritFM/Tampa, WQME/Indianapolis, WDJC/Birmingham, WBFJ/Greensboro, NC and others. The lyric video for “Captured” is available here:
The tracks off of Evening:Morning were written in a quasi-conceptual, temporal fashion, moving through the night to the morning, 7:00 PM to 7:00 AM, with each song representing one hour. Critics have been buzzing about the concept and quality of the debut album. Here is a sampling of the praise:
"A unique worship experience. The Digital Age continues the musical innovation that was foundational to The David Crowder Band."
- Dan H., Music Buyer; Family Christian
“The concept of the album is strong, the songs are powerful, and Jesus is the hero and heart of these 12 tracks. This is an exciting new chapter for The Digital Age. They’ve brought along their history but given it new wings.”
“Evening:Morning offers a refreshing and reinvigorating album for those who are seemingly tired of the over-commercialized CCM music industry. The Digital Age’s album is a certain purchase if you enjoy worship artists like Crowder, or even experimental-style bands like Rend Collective and Leeland …possibly one of the most anticipated albums of the year.”
- Indie Vision Music
"While there are definitely some flashes of David Crowder*Band glory on Evening:Morning, there's plenty of brilliance here in previously untraveled musical territory."
- New Release Tuesday
“If you were a true fan of David Crowder Band then the transition into Digital Age will be an easy one for you.”
- Christian Music Review
“Without a doubt, this is an album that improves with each listen…The Digital Age is an absolutely welcomed ensemble in the scene that has the potential to become huge in the near future.”
- Jesus Freak Hideout
“While the components of their former musical life are all there, the band makes great strides to make their own music and the result is nothing short of great.”
"Evening:Morning is unlike anything we have ever heard from these guys.”
"The Digital Age has certainly stepped up and even changed the game in many different ways."
This fall, The Digital Age will embark on a headlining, nationwide tour to promote their release of Evening:Morning. Kicking off September 26 in Waco, TX at University Baptist Church, the tour will feature Christian pop group Bellarive.
