First Baptist McKinney will host Digital Age on Oct. 19. The popular Fair Trade band The Digital Age is on a 30-city tour and released their debut studio album “Evening:Morning” last month to widespread acclaim. The four-piece, Waco-based group is made up of Mike Dodson (Mike D), Mark Waldrop, Jack Parker and Jeremy Bush (Bwack), formerly of the GRAMMY-nominated David Crowder Band. It received nods from several major Christian media outlets, as well as their former lead singer David Crowder. Worship Leader Magazine went as far as calling the album the “best new addition to the worship genre this year.”
Earlier this summer, The Digital Age asked fans to record themselves singing along with their single “Captured” to be included in the official music video coming soon. Continuing a pattern of close fan engagement, the band has opted to sell tickets for their upcoming tour directly to fans without the use of a third-party ticketing system, allowing the band to keep fees low and protect customer privacy. Concert tickets may be purchased at www.thedigitalagemusic.com.
“We’ve always cherished our interactions with our fans. We are the ones posting and replying on our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc., not some social media company,” said Mike Dodson of The Digital Age. “We wanted to extend that direct relationship to include our ticketing process as a way to stay connected with our friends and offer tickets with a greatly reduced service fee. We just want to be able to get in the same room with folks and sing with one voice to our God! It’s why we do what we do.”
