Farewell, David Crowder Band
DCB, one of CCM's brightest spots for the last decade, to call it quits after fall tour
"This is why we've so cleverly named it The 7 Tour," DCB explained in the online statement. "The number 7 has often been used to represent completion, and that feels exactly where we are as a band."
The statement went on to imply that they might have known for a long time that their next album -- their sixth -- would be their last one. They say they thought from the beginning (the band formed in 2000) that they would do a 6-album set, with the second three albums "loosely associated with the first three. . . . The problem, or the beauty, is that we've never been able to see past album 6."
The final album will follow 2005's Collision, their last full-length, and will likely be called Mass -- a play on words as another physics term and as a religious service. "Fittingly enough," the statement said, "it seems our little Mass has turned into a Requiem. We'd love your prayers as we endeavor to put at period at the end of this sentence."
