If there’s any campus that knows how inspiring Dave Matthews Band can be, it’s Syracuse. DMB will be coming to campus on October 9th to sing as part of the One World Concert two-day event. Aside from the Dalai Lama, Dave Matthews is probably the next biggest figure that will fill the dome to capacity.

In 2010, the band didn’t do much touring because they had been touring for the past 15 to 20 years. For some of you freshman, that’s basically your entire lifetime. So it’s no surprise that the band has taken a break to create new music. In 2011, DMB came back to festivals, concert venues, and the world with their tunes and spirit we all know and love. But yes, they did show up a few places in 2010 but not as much as they usually do.

Now, in 2012, the band finally released their new album, Away From The World on iTunes. The album was available for a preview listen, which I was fortunate enough to experience. The traditional DMB sound and lyrics fill the album and shouldn’t disappoint any fan. The album is available for purchase on iTunes now, and is available for your listening pleasure on Spotify.

Hopefully we will also be hearing some of these songs at the One World Concert. I might be upset if we don’t… As Dave sings, “Mercy, will we overcome this? Oh, one by one could we turn it around? Baby, carry on just a little bit longer, and I’ll try to give you what you need.” I think that screams One World Concert right?

Tracks include:

Broken Things, Belly Belly Nice, Mercy, Gaucho, Sweet, The Riff, Belly Full, If Only, Rooftop, Snow Outside, Drunken Soldier

Take a listen and love it as much as I do! Comment and let me know your thoughts!
