Dave Matthews Band's Big Whiskey In Stores NOW!!

Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, the Dave Matthews Band's first studio album in four years, is out NOW. 

On Friday, June 5th, Dave Matthews Band will perform on NBC's "TODAY" show on Rockefeller Plaza, marking the first morning television appearance in the band's career.

With its celebratory spirit and lyrical ruminations on fragile mortality, the album pays tribute to saxophonist LeRoi Moore, the band's fallen partner. Moore passed away in the summer of 2008 while the group was on tour and midway through making the album.
 "When Roi died, it shook the whole band and left us saying, 'What do we do now?'" recalls Matthews. "We knew that first of all, we had to finish this record that he was already in love with. So all of us went back in with the attitude 'We can't mess around with this one, because this one is an ode."

The track listing for Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King is as follows:

1. Grux
2. Shake Me Like A Monkey
3. Funny The Way It Is
