For The Locals

Coinciding with the launch of their U.S. summer tour (full list of dates below), Dave Matthews Band will release Walk Around The Moon – their 10th studio album and the follow-up to their chart-topping 2018 album, Come Tomorrow – on May 19.

Most of the album’s 12 original songs were recorded with producer Rob Evans, including the first single, “Madman’s Eyes,” which was released today. Longtime collaborator, John Alagia, served as executive producer of the album. Walk Around The Moon took shape during the pandemic and is as much a reflection on the current times as it is an urge to find common ground.

After playing a trio of dates in Mexico, Dave Matthews Band will kick off its U.S. tour at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, TX on May 19. The headline run will include the band’s first show at the historic Forest Hills Stadium in New York on June 9.

Dave Matthews Band will visit PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ, on July 18, and Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY, on July 19, 2023.

Today also marks the release of the epic and ominous first single release from Walk Around The Moon. “Madman’s Eyes” weaves Middle Eastern textures with heavy horns and strings as Matthews asks unflinchingly, “When it’s too late to untwist the knife / How do we face hatred with the love inside us.” View the visualizer HEREDave Matthews Bandgave “Madman’s Eyes” its live debut at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH in November 2021. The full album track listing is below. The pre-order for the physical album, featuring a limited-edition deluxe vinyl option, is exclusively available now at DaveMatthewsBand.com.

Dave Matthews’ ongoing partnership with The Nature Conservancy has resulted in three million trees being planted since 2020.

This year’s continued partnership will bring the total to four million trees. Fans can join in this mission by adding an optional donation of $2 per ticket to plant a tree with The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign – a major forest restoration effort with the goal of planting a billion trees around the world by 2025.

Bruce Gowers: 10 Iconic Music Videos He Directed

  • Queen - 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

    From that opening silhouette to those close-ups of Freddie Mercury belting his heart out, the video for “Bohemian Rhapsody” is as classic as the song itself.

  • Prince - '1999'

    Gowers clearly had a magical way of capturing an artist’s performance, and the video for “1999” is a prime example of that. (Spoiler: Performance videos are going to be a common theme here, but the way Gowers was able to help present a musician on film was anything but common.)

  • Bee Gees - 'How Deep Is Your Love'

    When you have a ballad as perfect as “How Deep Is Your Love,” you don’t need to cloud a music video with a ton of visuals, which is clearly the case here. However, bonus points are awarded for lighting Barry Gibb’s incredible hair just right.

  • John Mellencamp - 'Jack & Diane'

    Here we see more of a story element with the video for John Mellencamp’s “Jack & Diane.” Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge those gloved claps. Perfection!

  • Chaka Khan - 'I'm Every Woman'

    When you’re a total babe with a stunning voice like Chaka Khan, all you really need to create magic is a green screen and a bunch of outfit/hair changes. Sometimes, less really is more.

  • Van Halen - 'Dance the Night Away'

    If you couldn’t catch Van Halen when they rolled through your town, watching the video for “Dance the Night Away” allowed you to see how fun they were live. And then you made sure not to miss them the next time around.

  • Journey - 'Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin''

    I don’t know what it says about me, personally, when I say I’d totally wear Steve Perry’s outfit today, but this performance clip for one of the catchiest songs about heartbreak is still delightful decades later.

  • Rush - 'Tom Sawyer'

    The video for “Tom Sawyer” was shot in the famous Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, Canada where Rush recorded some of its most successful albums in their catalog. Seeing the trio in the intimate, picturesque setting almost feels like you’re sitting in on rehearsal.

  • Rod Stewart - 'Hot Legs'

    …And now, for something completely different! Rod Stewart is fully embracing his scamp-ness in this performance video the is anything but subtle.

  • Michael Jackson - 'Rock With You'

    The lasers! The dancing! All those sequins! This Michael Jackson video was released in 1979, but it was seemingly timeless upon its arrival.
