LA rockers Dawes have announced a fall tour in support of their latest album, GOOD LUCK WITH WHATEVER (Rounder). The first leg of the tour begins in Charleston, SC at the Music Hall on September 9 and ends at The Ryman in Nashville, TN on October 2. The second leg begins on November 17 in Vancouver, BC at The Vogue and culminates on December 12 in Houston, TX at the Heights Theater. Singer-songwriter Erin Rae will open all shows. The itinerary is below.

GOOD LUCK WITH WHATEVER is Dawes’ seventh studio LP and was produced by 6x GRAMMY® Award-winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit) at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A. The reaction to GOOD LUCK WITH WHATEVER was stellar and found the band performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert #playathome series as well as CBS This Morning: Saturday Sessions.

“Good Luck with Whatever is another Lucky Strike for One of Rock’s Best Bands.”

“Recorded live to tape with all four band members playing in one room simultaneously, the seventh outing from the Taylor Goldsmith-led outfit is their liveliest, most visceral set yet.
Plug this in—and turn the volume way up.”

“Hell, there isn’t a single song here that doesn’t creep under the skin and remain lodged there for the duration of the encounter. Every one speaks directly to its listeners
and resonates with them as well.”
-American Songwriter

“Enter Dawes and its new album, Good Luck with Whatever. Man, it’s a good one.”
-No Depression

“Such poetic elegance, empathy, and wisdom are extremely rare in popular art, but they are abundant in the music of Dawes, and never more so than on their latest record.”
