Creation Festival Northeast has just announced that David Crowder, formerly of the David Crowder Band, will start a new band simply called ‘Crowder,’ with all new band members.  And the new band will makes its debut on the prestigious Creation stage in June 2012.  No details were released about who the new band members will be, but this is awesome news for all us die hard DC*B fans.  Now we can continue to enjoy the creative genius, energy and searching lyrics David Crowder has been known for.  Words can’t express the excitement of all of us here at Awaken Generation at this terrific news.  Incidentally all the ex-DC*B band members are also making new music as part of their new outfit simply called, The Digital Age.  Let the merriment continue and turn up the volume!
