LA rock quartet Dawes are pleased to announce additional tour dates for 2013. After recently wrapping up a life-changing trip to Rwanda where the band helped the U.N. charity Nothing But Nets raise awareness & funds to protect refugee families from malaria and a successful run at this year’s SXSW Music Festival, Dawes are currently on the road touring a number of independent record stores across America, performing songs off their forthcoming full-length album, the Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Norah Jones)-produced, Stories Don’t End (April 9, HUB Records). Immediately following the current tour, Dawes will then support the legendary Bob Dylan on a number of dates beginning Friday, April 5 at Alumni Arena in Buffalo, NY.

Following the Bob Dylan tour, which ends on May 5 in St. Augustine, FL the band will then make a number of North American festival and 20+ headline appearances throughout June and July. Support on the upcoming summer tour will be provided by Shovels & Rope.

In addition to the new tour dates, Dawes has launched FromAWindowSeat.net, an interactive photo web site that allows the band’s fans and friends across the globe to connect and share in each other’s lives by posting photos from a window seat and using the hashtag #fromawindowseat. Follow Dawes on Twitter (@dawestheband), on Instagram (@dawestheband).  The concept for the Web site is taken from the name of the band’s first single off Stories Don’t End, “From A Window Seat,” which will be performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday, May 16.

While the city of Los Angeles has been both an inspiration and a home to the four members of Dawes – Taylor Goldsmith (lead vocals, guitar), Wylie Gelber (bass), Tay Strathairn (keyboard), Griffin Goldsmith (drums, vocals) – they found themselves traveling East last fall to record their third album in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The tracks they laid down at Asheville’s Echo Mountain Studio have yielded a 12-song disc of tremendous sonic and narrative clarity, book-ended in classic album fashion by two very different versions of the wistful “Just Beneath The Surface” – a misleading title, really, since the songs stacked in between dig so deep. Stories Don’t End is not so much a departure from the quartet’s previous efforts as a distillation of them. It spotlights the group’s maturing skills as arrangers, performers and interpreters who shape the raw material supplied by chief songwriter and lead vocalist Taylor Goldsmith into an artfully concise and increasingly soulful sound.
