Rolling Stone hailed Dave Matthews Band as the “kings of summer” in an “On The Road” feature and noted in subsequent coverage: “The band’s summer tour has been full of surprises, with fans treated to new songs ‘Mercy’ and rare cuts like the unreleased ‘Shotgun’ and 1993’s ‘The Song That Jane Likes.’” The Boston Globe praised “Gaucho,” another track from Away From The World, as “a bright, propulsive burst.”
“Mercy,” the album’s first single, is already a Top 3 hit at Triple A radio. Fans have until August 14 to submit photo and/or video entries for possible inclusion in the “Mercy” video. Details are available at http://mercy.davematthewsband.com.
RCA Records will release Away From The World in CD, digital and vinyl formats. Fans who pre-order any configuration of the album at www.davematthewsband.com will receive a bonus disc with five songs recorded live on the summer tour: “Save Me,” “You Never Know,” “Jimi Thing,” “Halloween” and “Tripping Billies.” Away From The World is the follow-up to 2009’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200, making Dave Matthews Band one of only two groups in chart history to have five consecutive studio albums enter atop the chart.
Dave Matthews Band – comprising Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar) and Boyd Tinsley (violin) – has sold a collective 37 million CDs and DVDs combined.
