Dave Matthews Band will support its latest No. 1 album, Away From The World, with a month-long East Coast outing that launches on November 30th with the first of two shows at IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ. The run will include a two-night stand at John Paul Jones Arena in the band’s hometown of Charlottesville, VA (12/14 & 15) and its first show at the newly opened Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY (12/21).

An online presale for members of the DMB Warehouse Fan Association will begin on Thursday, October 4, at 10 AM ET at http://www.warehouse.davematthewsband.com. Citi is the official credit card of the Dave Matthews Band Winter 2012 Tour.

VH1 has added “Mercy 9.25.12,” an updated version of the band’s latest video, which was unveiled last week in honor of the first-ever National Voter Registration Day (NVRD). Building on the original “Mercy” video – which used images from 14,000+ fans to illustrate that “one by one we can turn it around” – the band added a message from Dave Matthews about voting and an embedded link to HeadCount.org <http://headcount.org/> ‘s voter registration page. NVRD brought together volunteers, artists, celebrities, organizations and corporations for a single day of coordinated efforts around voter registration. In 2008, 75 million Americans eligible to vote didn’t, many because they weren’t registered. You can view “Mercy 9.25.12” at:

Mercy,” a No. 1 hit at Triple A radio, is the first single from Away From The World (RCA Records), which bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last month, making Dave Matthews Band the first group in chart history to have six consecutive studio albums debut atop the chart.

The group – which ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade and has sold over 18 million tickets since its inception – is renowned for its live performances. “Matthews and his terrific players would have blown the roof off the place if there was one,” marveled the Orange County Register in a recent review while The Hollywood Reporter noted: “after more than two decades on the road, there isn’t a stage built yet he [Matthews] can’t make feel like home.”

Dave Matthews Band – comprising Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar) and Boyd Tinsley (violin) –has sold a collective 37 million CDs and DVDs combined.
