Dawes premiere their new video for “Roll With The Punches,” featuring Mandy Moore and directed by Dan Henry (Kurt Vile, Jack White), via Entertainment Weekly. In the video, Moore and Taylor Goldsmith, Dawes’s front man, star as a couple in the throes of a breakup. On the inspiration behind the video director Dan Henry says: “I got the idea for the video after I read a true story about a disgruntled German man whose 12 yearlong marriage ended tragically. He quite literally split all of their belongs in two, in a vindictive yet beautiful move that inspired the ‘RWTP’ video. The whole idea made me laugh at its extreme pettiness, but ended up perfectly representing the process of moving on.”

Also today, as a surprise gift to fans, Dawes release their streaming-only live album, We’re All Gonna Live. The band recorded the fifteen-song release during the first four shows on their current, “An Evening With Dawes” tour. The album contains live versions of audience favorites and new originals including ‘When The Tequila Runs Out,” “Roll With The Punches,” “One of Us,” “Things Happen,” and “All Your Favorite Bands.” Said Taylor of the live album: “With this tour we’ve felt like we’ve begun to turn a corner as a live band, so we figured it was time to share some of it with everyone.” We’re All Gonna Live plays off the title of Dawes’ critically acclaimed studio album, 2016’s We’re All Gonna Die, and the album’s cover features a phone number that fans can call to leave a message for the band while they are on the road. The album is available to stream on all digital platforms here.

Dawes is currently on a 50-date North American tour, with stops in New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Nashville, and more (full itinerary below). Billed as “An Evening With Dawes,” each night will feature two sets by the band with no opener. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.
