The single “Funny The Way It Is” is playing on just about every radio station out there and now there’s a video for it. Directed by Fenton Williams and Jeff Crane, the video features stop-motion animation a la Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer”. This will be fun to watch so click inside already and watch the video!
Dave Matthews Band were on the Today Show on NBC this morning and they played under a little tent as it rained upon everyone else. Sucks to not be a rock star! They played “Ants Marching”, “Why I Am”, “Crash Into Me”, “Funny The Way It Is” and “So Much To Say”. Check out the videos inside.
We forgot to post something totally funny and awesome from last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (yes, we know!). As you may have seen earlier today, Dave Matthews Band was on Fallon last night performing “Funny The Way It Is” and “Why I Am.” What you may not have seen was earlier in the program, Jimmy Fallon did his spot on impression of Dave Matthews in a fake commercial for the Dave Matthews Band GPS. Fallon as Matthews played …

On June 2nd Dave Matthews Band will release “Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King” (RCA), their first studio album in over four years. Named as a tribute to the band’s late saxophonist LeRoi Moore (aka the “GrooGrux King”), the new album will be familiar yet challenging to DMB fans as it balances electric guitars with the band’s traditional melodic funk style.

The new Dave Matthews Band single “Funny The Way It Is” is available as a free download via RCA Records (email sign-up required, fake phone number is ok) . At 4 minutes and 25 seconds, I think it’s a little long for a DMB single. “Funny The Way It Is” is an alright pop ditty from the band but I hope that it’s not the best song on the album. Up until the 4th minute, I was frankly bored. Anyways, …
