Two-time Grammy-nominated electronic act THE CRYSTAL METHOD (TCM) has announced they will lead into summer of 2010 with new single “Sine Language” featuring rappers LMFAO. The duo—Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland—have launched the party rocking anthem with a green screen video contest and DJ dates throughout the U.S. “Sine Language” is the fourth single from TCM’s current album DIVIDED BY NIGHT following “Drown In the Now” featuring Matisyahu, “Come Back Clean” with Emily Haines (Metric) and “Double Down Under.”

Beginning now through June 30, 2010, fans are encouraged to enter the contest, hosted by Dailymotion, to make the best video for the song. They will be provided with green screen footage of both The Crystal Method and LMFAO. Avid will be providing the following prizes to the contest winners which will be announced in mid-July: The Grand Prize winner will receive Avid Media Composer software and a music package from The Crystal Method including a signed art poster, signed vinyl and CD versions of Divided By Night and a TCM T-shirt; the second place winner will receive Mbox 2 Factory Pro Tools LE Recording System, a signed vinyl version of Divided By Night and a T-shirt from The Crystal Method; and five runners-up will receive a Pro Tools Recording Studio and a signed CD of Divided By Night. All winning videos will be presented through The Crystal Method's various websites and social media outlets.

To support “Sine Language” and create awareness around the contest, the duo will embark on a national DJ tour starting May 28 in Detroit. Thus far, club dates in St. Charles, Missouri, Aspen, Memphis, Asheville and Washington D.C. have been announced with more to follow.

About The Crystal Method

Heralded by the Village Voice in spring 2009 as “one of the best live dance acts on Earth,” The Crystal Method—who is Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland—have been known over the last 10-plus years for their enduring dance floor anthems (“Now Is The Time,” “Keep Hope Alive”), airwave smashes (“Trip Like I Do”) and a willingness to collaborate with an array of talent–including rock’s elite like Scott Weiland, Matisyahu, New Order’s Peter Hook and Filter’s Richard Patrick. The duo has dominated the remix, film soundtrack, television, gaming and advertising worlds. Their platinum-status debut album Vegas (released in 1997) is one of the biggest-selling electronic albums of all time, landing them in the top five of best-selling electronic acts in America. They scored the film London as well as the themes for TV shows “Bones” and “Third Watch” and were the first act to work with Nike for their running soundtrack series, but it’s Divided By Night, their 2009 studio album, that takes The Crystal Method to all new heights.
