THE CRYSTAL METHOD Return to the Road this June as Support for Tool and to Headline Select Dates
This June, Grammy Award®-nominated, platinum-certified electronic dance music innovator THE CRYSTAL METHOD (Scott Kirkland) will join TOOL as special guest on a two-week North American summer tour. Performing select headline shows in between the arena and amphitheater dates, Kirkland will hit the road on June 9 in Chicago, IL, kicking off THE CRYSTAL METHOD’s first tour in over two years. Check out the full confirmed itinerary below.
Known for enigmatic, enthralling and engaging live shows, THE CRYSTAL METHOD have cooked up a distinct DJ set for the jaunt supporting TOOL. Kirkland will offer an unparalleled and immersive interpretation of TCM’s celebrated catalog-spanning “Trip Like I Do,“ “Busy Child,” “Name of the Game” and many more-in real-time.
Keeping eternally busy, Kirkland recently contributed to the score for the upcoming NETFLIX documentary Hired Gun-premiering this summer. No stranger to film music, the established composer crafted a powerful sonic backdrop to propel and punctuate the narrative.
Kirkland also serves as one-half of BANDWIDTH, a duo he co-founded with longtime friend TOOL bassist Justin Chancellor. Together, they remixed Foals‘ “What Went Down” and Puscifer‘s “Simultaneous,” adding a definitively deep and dark dynamic to each.
Following this summer run, THE CRYSTAL METHOD will commence recording a new album, thefollow-up to 2014’s self-titled The Crystal Method.
“I am excited about the music I’m making at my LA studio Crystalwerks and the people I’m working with,” says Kirkland. “The new album is sounding amazing and this summer tour with Tool is going to be epic! “
