2018 album also available in CD.
Dave Matthews Band release their long awaited and ninth studio album ‘Come Tomorrow’and the bands first since 2012’s ‘Away From The World’, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200. Working between tours at studios in Seattle, Los Angeles and Charlottesville, Dave Matthews Band chose to record with several different producers, including John Alagia, Mark Batson, Rob Cavallo and Rob Evans.
Since forming in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the early ’90s, the Dave Matthews Band have excelled at making cargo-shorts party music, blending acoustic folk, jazz fusion, bluegrass, and funk. In a post-Grateful Deadworld following the death of Jerry Garcia in 1995, people were eager for exploratory music with distinct pop leanings, and Dave fit the bill.
More than 25 years later DMB still draw substantial crowds and along the way Matthews’ songs have become cultural shorthand for the rejection of irony and cynicism. Of course, darker undercurrents also run through the DMB catalog. His father, John Matthews, died when he was only ten, and his sister Anne was murdered by her husband shortly before the release of the band’s major-label debut ‘Under the Table and Dreaming’ in 1994. In 2008, saxophonist LeRoi Moore died following complications from an ATV accident. These deaths make their way into his songs. For all the sunny melodies, few pop songwriters sing as frequently and with as much clarity about death than Matthews.
The Grammy Award-winning Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 20 million tickets since its inception and a collective 38 million CDs and DVDs combined. It is the first group in history to have six consecutive studio albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
