Dave Matthews

If you’re a touring jam band, then summer is your season. This summer, Dave Matthews Band plan to not only hit the road on their usual super-busy touring schedule, but they’ve also got a new album coming, their first since 2012.

Given that every album they’ve released in the last twenty years has gone to #1 on the US charts, their latest is bound to be special. According to a statement on the DMB website, “The band is currently putting the finishing touches on the album, which will mark its ninth studio release and first since 2012’s Away From The World.”

In addition, the band have also released their summer tour schedule. The North American tour kicks off in Texas on May 18 and runs through September, culminating with a show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The tour includes back-to-back shows in New Hampshire, New Jersey, Chicago, Noblesville, Saratoga Springs, West Palm Beach, Denver and a trio of Labor Day shows at The Gorge in George, WA.
