Dawes’ highly anticipated new album ‘We’re All Gonna Die’ will be released September 16 via their own HUB Records. This record follows the release of ‘All Your Favorite Bands’, which Rolling Stone declared “Their strongest record since their 2009 debut,” while Uncut awarded it 8/10 and Mojo commented that they were “Oozing laid back paranoia like no one else”.
The band also revealed a brand new official music video for ‘When The Tequila Runs Out’. Taken from their forthcoming 5th studio album, it was directed by Kevin Hayes, and filmed with a slow motion camera capturing the fun moments of a late night party being recalled the next morning in a fuzzy hungover haze.

‘We’re All Gonna Die’ was recorded at EastWest Studios (Los Angeles, CA) with additional recording at The Boat (Silverlake, CA) and was produced by Grammy nominated producer Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes). The record features ten original tracks and includes backing vocals from Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe of Lucius, Mandy Moore and Will Oldham.
Of the album, Taylor Goldsmith (guitar, vocals) explains, “These songs were all written in a very short period of time, very close together. In that sense I feel like there was a consistency in mood and outlook our other records don’t have. Pretty much every song on this record explores a difficult situation and tries to find a way to find the good in it, or at least remind yourself that it’s not always that big of a deal. After all, as scary as it is, we are all gonna die.”
The band consists of Taylor Goldsmith (vocals, guitar) Wylie Gelber (bass), Griffin Goldsmith (drums, vocals, percussion) and Lee Pardini (keyboards, vocals). Dawes has toured extensively playing headline shows worldwide and major festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival. Recently, they have toured with My Morning Jacket, Bob Dylan, Mumford and Sons, Conor Oberst, and Jackson Browne.
