Dave Matthews Band will support its latest No. 1 album, Away From The World, with a month-long East Coast outing that launches on November 30th.
"Mercy,” a No. 1 hit at Triple A radio, is the first single from Away From The World (RCA Records), which bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last month, making Dave Matthews Band the first group in chart history to have six consecutive studio albums debut atop the chart.
The group – which ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade and has sold over 18 million tickets since its inception – is renowned for its live performances. “Matthews and his terrific players would have blown the roof off the place if there was one,” marveled the Orange County Register in a recent review while The Hollywood Reporter noted: “after more than two decades on the road, there isn’t a stage built yet he [Matthews] can’t make feel like home.”
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.
