DAVE MATTHEWS BAND COLLABORATES WITH FANS

ON VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE, “MERCY”

Away From The World, The Band’s Upcoming Album, Set For September 11 Release

Dave Matthews Band is inviting fans to take part in the creation of a video for its latest single, “Mercy.” Individuals who complete one (or more) easy-to-follow photo and/or video tasks may find their images featured within the unique, fan based music video. Details are posted at http://mercy.davematthewsband.com. One lucky fan who enters will win a trip to the final show of Dave Matthews Band’s summer tour, which will take place at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA on September 9. Fans do not need to contribute to the video in order to win.

“Mercy” is the first single from the band’s forthcoming album, Away From The World. The track, which is already a Top 3 hit at Triple A radio, is available now at all digital retailers.

On September 11, RCA Records will release Away From The World in CD, digital and vinyl formats. Fans can pre-order the standard and deluxe editions of Away From The World on the iTunes Store and at www.davematthewsband.com. The deluxe edition contains three additional tracks, which are exclusive live recordings of songs from the album. A super-deluxe edition, containing the deluxe CD, a DVD, a 2012 tour photo book and more, can also be pre-ordered at www.davematthewsband.com.

The group recorded Away From The World with Steve Lillywhite, who produced its first three studio records – Under The Table And Dreaming, Crash and Before These Crowded Streets. The upcoming album is the follow-up to 2009’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200, making Dave Matthews Band one of only two groups in chart history to have five consecutive studio albums enter atop the chart.

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. The band was the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade and has sold over 17 million tickets since its inception. The West Coast leg of Dave Matthews Band’s summer tour will kick off with three consecutive nights at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA over Labor Day weekend (8/31, 9/1 & 2).
