Grammy Award-nominated, platinum-certified electronic dance music innovator The Crystal Method (Scott Kirkland) is returning to the road this fall, and making a stop in Chattanooga Oct. 6 at the TenGIG festival.

Review for The Crystal Method: 

Known for enigmatic, enthralling and engaging DJ sets, The Crystal Method is sure to put on an unparalleled performance that won’t soon be forgotten. Enjoy hits from TCM’s celebrated catalogue, from “Trip Like I Do,” to “Busy Child,” “Name of the Game” and many more to some of today’s best dance floor-ready electronic music. 

The Crystal Method, with Tobias Enhus, will release the original music score for the documentary film Hired Gun: Out of the Shadows, Into the Spotlight Sept. 22 on Tiny e Records. The film depicts musicians sharing their behind-the scene stories of touring, what it takes to play next to the world’s most iconic artists, and create some of the world’s most popular songs. 

In addition, between tour dates The Crystal Method is also in the studio recording a new album; the follow-up to 2014’s self-titled The Crystal Method. 

The Crystal Method's first singles would be released only on vinyl followed by their 1997 debut album Vegas, which would become certified platinum by the RIAA. In between releasing albums and never-ending tours, The Crystal Method’s founders Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan’s demand amplified within the film and television worlds. They delivered the smash “(Can’t You) Trip Like I Do” with Filter’s Richard Patrick for the gold-selling Spawn soundtrack, wrote the theme song for “Bones,” scored the indie film London and the J.J. Abrams-produced “Almost Human” for Fox. They also scored characters for The League of Legends video game, and contributed music to everything from Real Steel to Fast & Furious 6, along the way working with Danny Elfman, Tom Morello, LeAnn Rimes, Scott Weiland, Metric’s Emily Haines, LMFAO and even film star Milla Jovovich. Legion of Boom notched a 2004 Grammy Award nomination for “Best Dance/Electronic Album”-during the category’s first year. They also received another Grammy nomination for Divided By Night in 2009, while delivering unforgettable sets on the stages of Coachella, Lollapalooza and Electric Daisy Carnival to name a few.
