Los Angeles-based Americana rockers Dawes have released their latest album, “Good Luck With Whatever”. The new record was produced by six-time Grammy-winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton/Brandi Carlile/Jason Isbell/Marcus King) at Nashville’s storied RCA Studio A. The new studio effort from Dawes comprised of Taylor Goldsmith (guitars, vocals), Griffin Goldsmith (drums), Wylie Gelber (bass), and Lee Pardini (keys)—marks the band’s seventh full-length release.

Good Luck With Whatever”released via Rounder Records, follows a series of acclaimed self-released albums including 2013’s STORIES DON’T END, 2015’s ALL YOUR FAVORITE BANDS, 2016’s WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE, and 2018’s PASSWORDS, all of which reached the top 10 or higher and “Americana/Folk Albums” charts.

The album deals with reflective themes like grappling with the expectations of adulthood over the familiar Dawes brand of graceful melodies with kinetic riffs and intricate musical interplay. A culmination of their entire catalogue and decade-long career all wrapped up in nine tracks, Good Luck With Whatever reclaims the rugged urgency and easy confidence of Dawes’ early work while tapping into the veteran band’s intense musical connection more effectively than ever before.

“In the past, I’ve definitely been more precious about the way I wanted the songs to sound, but that’s never as fun,” says Taylor Goldsmith in a press statement. “The music we make is everyone’s mode of expression, and the other guys all have chops that I don’t have and never will. The fact that we’re able to lean on each other and celebrate each other as individuals just makes us so much more excited about getting to play together in this band.”

In celebration of the new album, Dawes also recently announced a drive-in performance on Saturday, October 17th at City National Grove of Anaheim in Anaheim, CA. For more information and ticketing details, head here.
