RCA album due in May.

Dave Matthews Band will supports its new studio album with a North American summer tour, beginning June 1 in Maryland Heights, Mo., and running through Sept. 7 in Bonner Springs, Kansas. Members of the band's Warehouse fan organization will get first crack at tickets through March 14; most shows go on sale to the general public April 2.

Beyond multiple-night stands at such familiar venues as Camden, N.J.'s Tweeter Center and the Verizon Wireless Music Center just outside Indianapolis, DMB will play Aug. 12-13 at the 41,000-capacity SBC Park in San Francisco and Aug. 19-21 at the Gorge Amphitheatre just outside Seattle.

The band's as-yet-untitled RCA set is expected in May.

After five straight years among the top 10 touring acts, DMB came in 12th last year, grossing $37.5 million and drawing 881,730 fans to 43 shows reported to Billboard Boxscore.

Before the summer tour, DMB will play its first Australian shows later this month, as well as appear at the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in late April. A visit to the Bonnaroo festival is slated for mid-June.

DMB is booked by Chip Hooper at Monterey Peninsula Artists and managed by Coran Capshaw at Red Light Management.
