Los Angeles rockers Dawes recently announced the dates for their upcoming fall 2021 tour with special guest Erin Rae. Angelenos will have two chances to see them rock out at The Fonda Theatre, November 26 and 27, 2021. The tour will be in support of Dawes’ seventh studio album, Good Luck With Whatever, which was released on October 2020 via Rounder Records. The new album 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 band have been busy since the release of Good Luck With Whatever, which has been received so well they found themselves performing live on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert #playathome series as well as CBS This Morning: Saturday Sessions. They also performed live recently at the Drive-In OC at the City National Grove of Anaheim, shortly after the release of the new album.
The folk-rock act are composed of brothers Taylor (guitars and vocals) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), along with Wylie Gelber (bass) and Lee Pardini (keyboards). They began to earn fans with their 2009 debut album North Hills and their 2011 sophomore followup Nothing Is Wrong via ATO records. These were followed up with a series of self-released albums including 2016’s We’re All Gonna Die and 2018’s Passwords signing with Rounder Records for the release of Good Luck With Whatever.
