Dawes Release New Music Video, Announce New Album And Fall Tour Dates

first_imgLos Angeles Americana outfit Dawes has announced their new album. We’re All Gonna Die will come out on the band’s HUB Records on September 16th. The album features a ton of special guests, including Brittany Howard from the Alabama Shakes, Jim James from My Morning Jacket, Lucicus singer Holly Laessig, and an out-of-left-field appearance by Mandy Moore, who happens to be dating Dawes front man Taylor Goldsmith. Moore also appears in the music video for the album’s lead single, “When the Tequila Runs Out”. In a press release, Goldsmith had this to say about the new album: “These songs were all written in a very short period of time, very close together. In that sense, I feel like there was a consistency in mood and outlook our other records don’t have. Pretty much every song on this record explores a difficult situation and tries to find a way to find the good in it, or at least remind yourself that it’s not always that big of a deal. After all, as scary as it is, we are all gonna die.”Watch the music video for “When the Tequila Runs Out” below:Dawes have announced a full slew of fall tour dates to support the new album, and you can find those tour dates belowDawes 2016 Tour Dates:08/17 – New York, NY @ PBS Front and Center Taping08/20 – Albany, NY @ Hart Theatre At The Egg08/22 – Philadelphia, PA @ Main Street Music08/23 – Baltimore, MD @ The Sound Garden08/25 – Nashville, TN @ Live On The Green Music Festival08/26 – Florence, AL @ Billy Reid Shindig08/28 – Tacoma, WA @ Cheneyville Music Festival08/29 – Seattle, WA @ Easy Street08/30 – Portland, OR @ Music Millennium08/31 – San Francisco, CA @ Amoeba Berkeley09/15 – Long Beach, CA @ Fingerprints 09/16 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery09/19 – New York, NY @ The McKittrick Hotel09/23 – Peoria, IL @ Limelight09/24 – Chicago, IL @ 312 Urban Block Party[H/T Consequence of Sound]last_img read more
