Dave Matthews Band is currently working with producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance, Alanis Morissette) on its latest album. Guitarist and longtime friend Tim Reynolds has joined the band in the studio for the first time since 1998's Before These Crowded Streets. The as-yet-untitled album is the follow-up to 2005's Stand Up, which was the fourth consecutive Dave Matthews Band studio record to debut at #1 on The Billboard 200.
Comprised of Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar), LeRoi Moore (saxophone) and Boyd Tinsley (violin) - Dave Matthews Band has sold a collective 35 million units (CD and DVD combined) since the 1994 release of its major label debut, Under the Table and Dreaming. And with 14 million tickets sold, the band is consistently one of the top draws on the concert circuit.
