DMB Album Due June 2, Summer Tour Announced

Originally expected in April, Dave Matthews Band's as-yet-untitled new RCA album will now arrive June 2. The group has also announced its annual summer tour, beginning May 27 in Darien Center, N.Y.

The dates will follow a previously announced spring run, which kicks off April 14 at New York's Madison Square Garden. Support acts for the summer shows include Robert Randolph, Femi Kuti, the Hold Steady, Umphrey's McGee, Old Crow Medicine Show and Switchfoot.

Rumors suggest the band may play Boston's Fenway Park on May 29-30, but no announcement has yet been made.

Meanwhile, DMB plans to zip over to Europe for a quick tour during late June and early July. For the band's full itinerary, visit its Web site.

The new DMB album was produced by Rob Cavallo. A number of songs have been played live since the summer of 2007, including "Round and Round," "Cornbread," "#27" and "Falling Off the Roof," but it is unknown if they will appear on the upcoming project.
