David Cook, finally names his band. The name he and his band are considering strongly right now is…
David Cook and the Anthemic.
David revealed the news in an interview with Darren Ferraira of KHOP 95.1, Modesto, CA on Friday.
Ferraira twittered a challenge to David Cook fans–that if he reached 1000 followers by noon Pacific time on Sunday, he would reveal, with David’s permission, the band’s name.
Cook fans, eager to know the new name, quickly met the goal, and the video with the reveal was posted at noon PST.

After getting the OK from his handler, David spilled the news to Ferraira, “I think the name of the band we’re going to go with…the one we’re thinking of is…the Anthemic, David Cook and the Anthemic.
“It’s an anthem, it’s epic, it’s big, ” explains David, “that’s what I feel the band has the potential to be, it’s where we want to go.”
David adds, “We tried for months for band names, and it’s the one we’re shooting for at the moment.”
ETA: The name is a bit of a puzzler (Anthemic? oh Anthem. I get it. Sort of.) and it doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Hm. Not loving the name at this time.
