crystal method annouces live tour details

The Crystal Method today unveiled the details and dates of its first live tour in five years, which kicks off a Coachella April 17. The "Divided By Night" tour celebrates the release of the eponymous album (deets), the duo's forth studio long-player, which is due May 12 on its own Tiny e label (distributed by INgrooves/Fontana).

The pair also unveiled cover art (above), designed by two-time Grammy Award-winner Neal Ashby of Ashby Design. TCM's Ken Jordan described the inspiration for the cover illustration:

"On a recent plane trip to a DJ gig, we caught an amazing sight. The sun was setting in the west. There were spectacular rich colors on the horizon, but on the ground below, it was night. We both were moved by this incredible contrast."

TCM's Scott Kirkland adds, "Divided By Night immediately popped into my head, not so much as an album title but as a metaphor for our lives. As I enjoyed this beautiful view from my cramped seat, I thought of my family in California and reflected on just how different these two worlds are. We lead pretty normal lives outside of our nights as The Crystal Method and that sunset scene and the concept of leading what sometimes seems like two separate lives just seemed to fit. Neal did an amazing job capturing that feeling with his artwork."
