Facebook: Dave Matthews Band

With its new album, Away From The World (RCA Records), bowing at No. 1 on theBillboard 200, Dave Matthews Band reaches a new milestone, becoming the first group in chart history to have six straight studio albums debut atop the chart.  ‘Away From The World’, the band’s eighth studio album, sold 266,000 units in its first week of release. It is the follow-up to 2009’s Platinum-certified Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which was nominated for two Grammy awards.

Dave Matthews Band celebrated the release of Away From The World with a show at the historic Hollywood Bowl last Wednesday. “‘Mercy’ [is] full of potential to become as captivating a pace-changer as ‘The Space Between’ was last night, when Matthews played a beautiful, stripped down version of the 2001 song solo under one spotlight,” observed Entertainment Weekly.The Hollywood Reporter praised the band’s renditions of new songs such as “the soft, melodic ‘Gaucho'; ‘Snow Outside'; ‘Mercy,’ which featured an effectively slow buildup; and ‘The Riff,’ a compelling standout …after more than two decades on the road, there isn’t a stage built yet he [Matthews] can’t make feel like home.”

“Mercy,” which the band also performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” quickly climbed to No. 1 on the Triple A radio charts over the summer. Today “Mercy” goes to Hot AC radio while “If Only,” the album’s second single, is serviced to the Triple A format. You can view Dave Matthews Band’s exclusive performance of “If Only” for at:
