On Tuesday May 7th, Digital Tape Machine will release their debut album entitled “Be Here Now.” This has been a long time coming and the timing is right. This 10 song full length album features all original tracks written by the band. If you’re not familiar with the origin of DTM, it all started In the Vault. I.V. Lab Recording Studio in Chicago to be exact. Originally, this group started out making music together in the studio and had no intentions of going live. So “Be Here Now” is coming full circle with the release of this debut material. We called on our fans to make this album come to life and they responded. Through a successful Kickstarter campaign, fans had the chance to pre-order the album and receive it two weeks before we release it to the public. Be Here Now will be available via most online outlets like Itunes, Amazon, and countless other distributors. Be on the look out for the hard copy when you see Digital Tape Machine at festivals this year. The artwork for this album is really breathtaking and worth the purchase. So without further delay, we announce that “Be Here Now” will be available to you on Tuesday May 7, 2013.

A Personal Message from Joel Cummins:
“Digital Tape Machine fans here is a chance to help make our new album Be Here Now a reality. We’re embarking on a kickstarter campaign where you can purchase the album in about 25 different ways. We’ve created both practical & ridiculous packages that should satiate every fan’s desire.
With your album purchase do you want to play golf with Kris Myers, Dan Rucinski & me? Want to do a wine tasting with a few of us & UM’s Kevin Browning? How about lessons with guitarist Marcus Rezak or a keyboard lesson with Joe Hettinga & me together? If you want to go big, you can have DJ My Boy Elroy or the ENTIRE band play your private party. Take a look at all of the options you have, from purchasing a digital version of the album to purchasing a vinyl version with lots of add ons and rarities we want to share with you. We have 45 days to make the album a reality, and we can only do it with your help.
The new album, Be Here Now, is almost finished — we’ve put months and months of work into it to create a slamming debut of a studio album to share with the world. After nearly 30 amazing live shows together over the past 2 years, it’s time to show everyone what we can create in the studio. The songs on the album are all DTM live staples, many of which have taken on a new life now that we’ve tackled studio versions of them. So come by and purchase the album for yourself, or for a friend as a holiday gift, or if you want to wait until after the holidays, spend some of that holiday gift $ on a gift that will keep on giving: DTM’s new studio album, Be Here Now. Thanks for listening & spread the word as far and wide as you know how!”Click Here to View Kickstarter Campaign
