SET FOR RELEASE EARLY 2022CLUB DATES CONFIRMED FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2021THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA

In the fall of 2018, The Crystal Method (TCM) released its sixth studio album and first body of work helmed solely by Scott Kirkland with The Trip Home.  Today, October 29, The Crystal Method is back with a new single “House Broken” featuring Naz Tokio on lead vocals.

“’House Broken’ is a driving anthemic track created during the height of the Covid lockdown.  It’s a ready for the floor banger featuring powerfully poignant vocals from Naz Tokio, serpentine synths, and a drop that will bring the room to a boil,” says Scott Kirkland. The song was mixed and produced by TCM along with Mark Evans and is a genre bending future classic in the style of some of the band’s biggest hits.

Adds Naz Tokio, “For almost two years now I feel like we’ve all tried to make ourselves house broken…domesticated, changing our animalistic habits to fit being stuck indoors, The Crystal Method is calling out to the wild ones to remember who we are & that sometimes you just have to break everything in sight and rage again!, it was an amazing opportunity for me to work with such a brilliant legend as Scott, has been a dream sequence for my hyperactive brain!…So get ‘your Crystal Method on!’”

Look out for House Broken’s video – directed, and produced by Naz herself, Spicy Rico (REELGOATS), and Lauren Hashian (Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions) who also co-wrote the song.  

“House Broken” is the first single from The Crystal Method’s seventh studio album The Trip Out which is scheduled for release in early 2022 on Ultra Records. For Ultra, who are celebrating their 25th Anniversary this month, this is a resigning of one of America’s most successful and iconic electronic acts to the label, as the bands classic mix compilation albums Community Service (2002) and Community Service II (2005,) were both Ultra releases which charted Top 10 in the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart, and in Apple’s Top 5 Electronic Music album chart many years before the event of streaming.

Originally formed in Las Vegas in 1993 by co-founders Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan (now retired), The Crystal Method is one of the most successful American electronic acts. Pioneers of the big beat genre and innovators of the ‘90s electronica movement, The Crystal Method has remained at the forefront of the worldwide dance music industry for more than two decades. 

The Crystal Method celebrates a 25+-year career in the music scene, which has resulted in an extensive discography that includes: the platinum-selling Vegas (1997), the band’s debut studio album and one of the top-selling albums worldwide by an American electronic artist ever; Tweekend (2001); Legion of Boom (2004) and Divided by Night (2009), both of which received GRAMMY nominations in the Best Electronic/Dance Album category; and The Crystal Method (2014).  The Trip Home–released in 2018–served as the sixth full-length The Crystal Method album and Kirkland’s first as a newfound solo act.   It’s follow-up The Trip Out will be released in early 2022.
