The Crystal Method: Exclusive "Behind-the-scenes" look at Divided By Night

Article: The Crystal Method: Exclusive "Behind-the-scenes" look at Divided By Night

Comprised of Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan, THE CRYSTAL METHOD is one of the best-selling electronica bands in the United States. They’ve come a long way since their debut album, Vegas (’97), which went platinum…a feat that most electronic bands can only dream of.

Divided By Night is their latest album and is their “re-introduction” into performing live sets once again.
