THE

     METHOD
(TCM)
are
dropping
what

     may
be
their
masterwork.

Bolstered
by
the
innovation,
Plexibility
and
craftsmanship

     that
have
made
the
duo
of
Ken
Jordan
and
Scott
Kirkland
club
culture
icons,
the

     pair’s
fourth
studio
effort‐‐due
out
May
12,
2009
via
Tiny
e
Records‐‐is
easily
its

     most
inventive
and
accomplished
to
date.

     

     Since
2004
when
The
Crystal
Method
unearthed
its
Grammy‐nominated
disc

     Legion
of
Boom,
Jordan
and
Kirkland
have
been
busy
building
their
state
of
the
art

     Los
Angeles
studio,
Crystalwerks;
keeping
audiences
entranced
with
their
high

     energy
DJ
sets;
rocking
the
airwaves
of
the
recently
defunct
Indie
103.1
with
their

     weekly
‘Community
Service’
radio
show
which
seeded
two
mix
albums
of
the
same

     name;
and
steadily
constructed
what
can
only
be
deemed
the
album
of
their
career.

     

     Notorious
over
the
last
ten‐plus
years
for
enduring
dancePloor
anthems
(“Now
Is

     The
Time,”
“Keep
Hope
Alive”
and
a
dozen
others),
airwave
smashes
(“Trip
Like
I

     Do,”
for
one),
a
willingness
to
collaborate
with
an
array
of
talent
–including
rock’s

     vocal
elite,
like
Scott
Weiland
and
Filter’s
Richard
Patrick–the
duo
also
managed
to

     succeed
in
the
remix,
Pilm
soundtrack,
television,
gaming
and
advertising
worlds.


     Their
platinum‐status
debut
album
Vegas
(released
in
1997)
is
one
of
the
biggest

     selling
electronic
albums
of
all
time,
landing
them
in
the
top
Pive
of
best‐selling

     electronic
acts
in
America.
They
scored
the
Pilm
London
as
well
as
the
themes
for
TV

     shows
“Bones”
and
“Third
Watch”
and
were
the
Pirst
act
to
work
with
Nike
for
their

running
soundtrack
series,
but
it’s
Divided
By
Night
that
takes
TCM
to
all
new

heights.



Whether
it’s
bringing
in
live
drums
or
lining
up
collaborations
with
talents
from
the

vast
spectrum
of
pop
sub‐genres,
The
Crystal
Method‐‐veterans
of
world
famous

festivals
like
Coachella,
Ultra
Music
Festival
and
Rothbury
‐‐has
managed
to
put
a

distinctly
American
face
on
the
European‐dominated
electronic
movement.
