“An Evening with Dawes and Bahamas” will see them performing together for two unique live sets, with Dawes backing Bahamas and Bahamas joining Dawes for a collaborative performance. The tour begins September 7 at Knoxville, TN’s Bijou Theatre and then travels the US through the month.
“An Evening with Dawes and Bahamas” marks a pinnacle of Dawes’ busy international live schedule, including headlining shows, festival performances, and a summer tour supporting The Head and The Heart. Additional highlights include a very special Independence Day event with Phil Lesh & Friends, set for Monday, July 4 at Asbury Park, NJ’s Stone Pony Summer Stage.
The non-stop tour schedule celebrates the arrival of Dawes’ upcoming eighth studio album, Misadventures of Doomscroller, due everywhere via Rounder Records on Friday, July 22. Pre-orders are available now. A number of exclusive bundles—including limited edition preferred pink vinyl with an optional 11×11 signed band photo, turntable slipmat, black hoodie, white pocket t, and socks—are available now at the official Dawes webstore.
Produced by longtime collaborator Jonathan Wilson (Billy Strings, Father John Misty, Angel Olsen), Misadventures of Doomscroller represents an adventurous new turn for Dawes, evincing a more ambitious, exploratory approach towards recording than ever before. The album includes such recently released singles as “It Comes In Waves” and the epic opening track, “Someone Else’s Café / Doomscroller Tries to Relax,” both available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Official performance videos—directed by Caitlin Gerard at Hollywood, CA’s historic EastWest Studios—are streaming now via YouTube.
Misadventures of Doomscroller marks Dawes’ first new LP following 2020’s Rounder Records debut, Good Luck With Whatever. Produced by 7x GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit) at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, the album earned critical applause around the world, with Esquire declaring it “their liveliest, most visceral set yet.” Dawes celebrated with a range of high profile TV appearances, including ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert #playathome series as well as CBS This Morning: Saturday Sessions.
