DMB is taking over part of the SiriusXM airwaves for the month of September!
The satcaster will launch "Dave Matthews Band Radio", the commercial-free music channel featuring music, interviews and live recordings from the band's archives.
"Dave Matthews Band Radio" will launch on Saturday, September 1 at 11PM EST and will run through Sunday September 30 on Sirius channel 142 and XM channel 43.
Additionally, "Dave Matthews Band Radio" will be available as a 24/7 channel online on channel 714 and through the Sirius XM Internet Radio App for smartphones and mobile devices.
"Dave Matthews Band Radio" will launch with an exclusive live broadcast of the Dave Matthews Band concert from the historic Gorge amphitheater in Washington state on Saturday, September 1 at 11PM and will be rebroadcast throughout the month. SiriusXM listeners will also hear live recordings from the band's vast archive.
The limited-run channel will also feature music from the band's entire catalog: everything from their early days to their upcoming eighth studio album Away From the World, scheduled to be released on Tuesday, September 11. During a special album preview, SiriusXM listeners will hear the band members personally introduce each song on the new album and share their stories about the songs, each other, and their 21-year career on the road.
The channel will also feature music from Dave Matthews' side projects as a solo artist and with Tim Reynolds, as well as special segments with band members.
So essentially, it's all things DMB. It only runs for a month, so if you are a subscriber, you may as well tune in and enjoy. If you don't subscribe, limited programming like this is more than enough reason to pick up a subscription. Well, that, Howard Stern and Liquid Metal!
"We're excited that SiriusXM is making it possible for fans everywhere to hear our September 1st show at The Gorge," said Dave Matthews Band. "We're also looking forward to sharing our new songs and some rare materials from our archives on Dave Matthews Band Radio."
