Los Angeles folk-rockers Dawes will return on April 9th with their third album. Taking its title from Joan Didion’s 1984 novel DemocracyStories Don’t End marks the first release on the band’s new label following their split from ATO Records last year.

Frontman Taylor Goldsmith and his band spent five weeks in Asheville, NC recording the new effort alongside producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones). King’s work on the boards helped preserve Dawes’ classic rock’n’roll qualities while assuring Stories Don’t End feels right at home in 2013.

“I feel like a big part of our existence is, ‘Dawes is this cool band that takes us back to the Seventies,’ which is never something we wanted at all,” Goldsmith explained to RollingStone.com. “. . . I get it, I’m not mad at it, but at the same time, we just wanted to make sure people saw us as a modern band as well.”

“These are the same four guys that you’ve gotten to know very well on the first two records,” Goldsmith added, “but at the same time, this album feels like a growth.”

Tour dates are currently being scheduled for spring and summer, with plans stretching all the way into 2014. Stay tuned for more.
