Rock band Dawes will embark on a 50-date North American tour in 2017 that will include two Oklahoma dates.

Starting Jan. 10 in San Diego, Calif., the tour will make stops in New York City, Dallas, Seattle, Los Angeles, Nashville and more. Billed as “An Evening With Dawes,” each night will feature two sets of new songs and fan-favorites.

The trek will include a Jan. 29 Oklahoma City stop at the ACM@UCO Performance Lab, 329 E Sheridan, and a March 21 Tulsa date at Cain's Ballroom, 423 N Main.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at dawestheband.com/tour.

Dawes also will make a triumphant return to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” when it airs at 10:35 tonight on ABC. The band will perform the songs “When The Tequila Runs Out” and “Quitter” off its latest album, the acclaimed "We’re All Gonna Die," released Sept. 16 on the band's own HUB Records.

"We're All Gonna Die is the band’s highest charting record to date. The first single, “When The Tequila Runs Out,” reached No. 5 on Billboard’s Triple A Radio Chart, according to a news release. "We're All Gonna Die" debuted at No. 18 on the Top Current Album charts and No. 1 on overall vinyl sales in the country.

Other recent notable appearances include a performance and interview with celebrated talk show host and award winning journalist Charlie Rose on his PBS program, which you can watch here:

Dawes also was a guest “A Prairie Home Companion,” with new host Chris Thile, where the band performed the songs “When The Tequila Runs Out,” “Roll With The Punches” and “We’re All Gonna Die.” Watch the performance, broadcast live from St Paul, Minnesota’s famed Fitzgerald Theater here:



Dawes recently performed three songs on "CBS This Morning: Saturday," who named them "one of the most respected live bands around." Watch the interview plus performances here.

Dawes also performed on KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic,” the LA public radio station's signature music program, on October 18th. Listen here.

Watch the official music video for the album’s lead single, “When The Tequila Runs Out":

"We’re All Gonna Die" was recorded at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles, with additional recording at The Boat in Silverlake, Calif., and was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes). The record features 10 original tracks and includes backing vocals from Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe of Lucius, Mandy Moore and Will Oldham as well as MPC programming from Jim Keltner on “When The Tequila Runs Out.”

Of the album, Taylor Goldsmith (guitar, vocals) explains in a news release, “These songs were all written in a very short period of time, very close together. In that sense I feel like there was a consistency in mood and outlook our other records don't have. Pretty much every song on this record explores a difficult situation and tries to find a way to find the good in it, or at least remind yourself that it's not always that big of a deal. After all, as scary as it is, we are all gonna die.”

The band consists of Goldsmith, Wylie Gelber (bass), Griffin Goldsmith (drums, vocals, percussion) and Lee Pardini (keyboards, vocals). Dawes has toured extensively playing headline shows worldwide and major festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival. Recently, they have toured with My Morning Jacket, Bob Dylan, Mumford and Sons, Conor Oberst and Jackson Browne.
