Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 11, 2008
New Method may be considered one of Christian music's freshest rock bands, but this Columbus, Ohio quartet is on the verge of becoming one of the genre's biggest new names with the release of its new album, Old School, and a national tour to support the music.
Recently signed by Avista, an arm of Provident-Sony Music, New Method will release its first national release on November 18th. Additionally, the band has launched a new Web site, http://www.newmethod.net, that's full of the band's music, news, videos, tour dates, and games.
With all of New Method's musical achievements, the band continues to focus on its guiding principles: ministry and mission work.
"All of us in the band continue to be excited about the opportunity to play our music for the youth and their families wherever we perform," said the band's founding member, Doug Meacham. "We've been blessed with a strong musical voice that we're using to reach out and share a message of love and hope with people who are searching for answers and inspiration in life."
New Method has spent the summer touring in support of its new CD, Old School, and will continue to work with newly acquired partner, the international nonprofit organization Mission Of Mercy through the band's own brand of family tour - the Faith & Family Night Tour.
"We wanted this CD to be a very unique project that begins with a reflection of the past, and moves into a more mature view of true love, and how we often fight against it," said Meacham.
The band's plans include producing a video to support the record, plus increased touring through the Faith & Family Night Tour and Avista Records Concert Series.
The Faith & Family Night Tour was first organized by New Method in 2003. Through the tour, New Method performs at sporting events along side organizations such as the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers basketball teams, the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer club, the Dallas Stars hockey, and more than 50 other professional teams since founding the event.
Meacham, a pastor at his home church of Grace Chapel Community Church in Westerville, Ohio, said the band continues to seek ways to reach out to families and children in communities throughout the country using the band's music as a hook.
