On September 24 the Dave Matthews Band will come together to headline “A Concert For Charlottesville,” the band’s first public performance since September 4, 2016. Despite an extremely inactive 2017, there’s hope 2018 will be a busier year for DMB as Matthews revealed he’s aiming for the group to release a new LP early next year.
Dave Matthews spoke with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ahead of this year’s Farm Aid concert which will take place in Burgettstown on Saturday. Matthews was asked about the status of the first DMB studio album since 2012’s Away From The World, “Actually, before I went on this trip, before all hell broke loose [in Charlottesville], me and Carter [Beauford, the DMB drummer] were recording some music together. We have a lot of stuff, so my plan is that we’ll put together some music this fall so we can have something out hopefully the beginning of next year. Hopefully, get it finished before that. I think we have some great music and some stuff that Carter and I worked on that’s added to the pile. There’s a lot to choose from. I just hope I choose wisely.”
The Dave Matthews Band debuted a handful of tunes in recent years including “Samurai Cop,” “Virginia In The Rain,” “Bismarck” and “Bob Law.” Matthews will play Farm Aid with Tim Reynolds on Saturday before reuniting with DMB on the 24th.
