Dawes releases ‘Feed The Fire’ EP, add 2019 North American tour dates

Los Angeles’ rock outfit Dawes announced the second leg of their Evening With Dawes: Passwords Tour on Monday. The newly announced batch of North American shows slated for early 2019 were also accompanied by a new EP titled Feed The Fire. The album is comprised of various versions of the indie-folk track by the same name, which was included on their Passwords LP shared earlier this year. The four-track EP includes the studio version in addition to a special live version, a barebones acoustic version and a radio edit. The song’s new official music video can also be seen above.

The music video is just as quirky and fun as the song itself, as it starts out with a Brady Bunch-like collage of up-close band member profiles. The Matthew Daniel Siskin-directed video is also filled with clips of YouTube videos and fan-shot footage of the band performing on stage.

Dawes also extended their North American tour, which began back in the summer on Aug. 2, and is now scheduled to continue into the early months of 2019 before ending on Feb. 20. The new leg of shows will begin on Jan. 18 in Oakland, California and runs for 19 more dates throughout the U.S. and Canada. Notable stops on the upcoming winter run includes a hometown show at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre on Jan. 19, Boston’s Boch Center on Feb. 2 and a gig at New York City’s Beacon Theatre a few nights later on Feb. 5.

Tickets for select shows on the newly announced 2019 tour will be going on sale starting this Friday, Oct. 5, and can be purchased by clicking here. According to the band’s announcement, tickets for the tour purchased online will include either a physical CD or digital copy of Passwords. The band’s current fall leg continues this evening with a show at Seattle’s Showbox. Tickets for the Monday night show can also be purchased by clicking here.
