Dawes Announce Tour Dates with Alison Krauss, Playing Letterman In June

ATO Records is excited to announce that Dawes has confirmed 17 dates supporting Alison Krauss & Union Station. Beginning July 27 in Danbury, CT, the dates run through August 27, and include stops at New York’s Beacon Theatre, the Fox in Atlanta and two shows at The Ryman in Nashville. The complete list of tour dates is below.

Dawes has already begun their touring in support of their highly anticipated second album, Nothing Is Wrong. Due out on June 7, 2011, Nothing Is Wrong is the follow-up to the band’s 2009 debut, North Hills (featuring their breakout anthem, “When My Time Comes”), an extraordinary record that was released quietly and soon became regarded among critics and fans across the country as a classic and must-own favorite. A collection of songs that expertly builds upon the template laid by North Hills, Nothing Is Wrong sees Dawes displaying strong growth and evolution while still manifesting their distinctive, unforgettable voice. The band is confirmed to perform the first single from the new album, “Time Spent in Los Angeles,” on The Late Show with David Letterman in late June.

ATO Records and Dawes will be launching a unique pre-order campaign that will allow fans to purchase the record in advance of release date and receive an immediate digital download of an exclusive three-song promotional EP, entitled Suitcase, featuring “Time Spent In Los Angeles,” and two B-sides from the album sessions, “All My Failures” and “Strangers Getting Stranger.”
