Dawes set to release 'Stories Don't End' in April
Band looks for a more 'modern' sound
Southern California folk rockers Dawes will release their third album, “Stories Don’t End,” on April 9. The set marks the band’s first since its departure from ATO Records. "Stories" is the follow-up to 2011's "Nothing Is Wrong," a collection that made many critics' best-of lists, including mine.
Lead singer Taylor Goldsmith says to expect the band to wear its influences a little less on its collective musical sleeve this time out. “"I feel like a big part of our existence is, 'Dawes is this cool band that takes us back to the Seventies,' which is never something we wanted at all," Goldsmith tells Rolling Stone. "Obviously we have our influences, and I know that some of what we do as a band is of another time, even simple aspects like guitar solos. So I get it, I'm not mad at it, but at the same time, we just wanted to make sure people saw us as a modern band as well.” Of course, when you're backing Robbie Robertson or Jackson Browne, being seen as a little retro is part of the package.
Working with producer Jacquire King, Dawes recorded the album over five weeks in Asheville, N.C.
A spring and summer tour will follow the album’s release.
