Back in September, Dave Matthews Band celebrated the release of their latest album, Away From the World, with a September 12th show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Here, DMB builds the jazzy, sparse melodies of new track “If Only” into a hazy extended cut, spacing out their trademark jams as Dave Matthews pleads for a lover to take him back.
Celebration has more recently turned to concern: the Dave Matthews Band have pledged $1 million toward Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The group will also turn its November 30th tour opener at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey into a benefit concert. All proceeds, including ticket and merchandise sales, will go to the Community Foundation of New Jersey’s Bama Works Sandy Relief Fund. Visit the Dave Matthews Band website for more details.
