Dawes to Release Live Album on Record Store Day
Dawes will release their upcoming live album Stripped Down at Grimey’s on Record Store Day’s Black Friday, November 29. The limited edition 12” orange vinyl will feature six live tracks, recorded during the band’s in-store performance at the legendary record store in Nashville, TN on March 20, 2013.
Prior to the band’s 2013 summer tour that found them opening for Bob Dylan and performing a number of headline and festival dates, the Los Angeles quartet performed at a handful of independent record stores across the U.S. These performances took place just ahead of the release of their latest album,
Stories Don’t End, and were used as a show of appreciation to supportive indie retailers and the band’s devoted fans.
“The tour reintroduced us to a certain breed of music fan and the people whose job it is to keep their worlds alive,” stated frontman Taylor Goldsmith. “This show is one of the performances from that tour: The gear is limited, the space is smaller than a normal venue, the material was virtually unknown at the time, but when you’re playing for a group of record store regulars, you know that you’re in good hands.”
