Dawes to Release Third Studio Album in April


LA rockers Dawes have confirmed plans to release their third studio album, Stories Don't End, on April 9 via their own label in conjunction with their management company, Q Prime. The album was produced by Jacquire King and recorded last September over a five week period in Asheville, North Carolina. After the album's release, the band will hit the road this Spring and Summer for an extensive tour. Stay tuned for those dates.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, singer/guitarist Taylor Goldsmith discussed how this album is a new direction for the group. "I feel like a big part of our existence is, 'Dawes is this cool band that takes us back to the Seventies,' which is never something we wanted at all. Obviously we have our influences, and I know that some of what we do as a band is of another time, even simple aspects like guitar solos. So I get it, I'm not mad at it, but at the same time, we just wanted to make sure people saw us as a modern band as well. With this album, thanks to what [producer] Jacquire [King] is really good at, we're able to stay a rock & roll band and maintain classic qualities, but at the same time, it makes sense that this record is coming out in 2013."
