Dawes made TV history on CBS Saturday Morning last weekend

Article Contributed by Big Hassle Media | Published on Thursday, July 28, 2022

Dawes made history last weekend on CBS Saturday Morning by performing the entirety of their new song "Someone Else's Cafe/Doomscroller Tries to Relax." Clocking in at 10 minutes and five seconds, the performance broke the record for the longest live performance of a single song in television history. The band also played "Comes in Waves."



Both songs come from Dawes' new LP out this past Friday, July 22. MISADVENTURES OF DOOMSCROLLER was produced by longtime collaborator Jonathan Wilson (Billy Strings, Father John Misty, Angel Olsen). The album represents an adventurous new turn for Dawes, evincing a more ambitious, exploratory approach towards recording than ever before.


Praise for Misadventures of Doomscroller:

"It’s the biggest left turn that Dawes has made on record yet...Doomscroller makes a lot more sense on about the fourth or fifth listen, and may even stand one of their most enjoyable collections."

– Variety

"Dawes take the opportunity to use their eighth album to stretch out, explore, and jam together...

The jammy concept is one the band has dabbled in occasionally on studio tracks throughout their career, but they lean into it on Misadventures of Doomscroller — and to great effect."

– No Depression

“The tracks on the new record are muscular, strong, and supported by their own artistry.”

– American Songwriter

“ The tunes are delivered in such a casual, almost improvisational style, you almost feel like you’ve stumbled into some basement-club jam session. It’s a whole new Dawes

— listeners had better brace for impact.”

– Paste

“Misadventures Of Doomscroller is a player’s album. Its seven tracks offer plenty of opportunities for the Southern California quartet to demonstrate why they’re one of the most fluid,

skilled and creative outfits in rock today.”

– Magnet

"This is easily Dawes’ most musically adventurous album to date, where any Jackson Browne-tinged folk balladry is turned inside out for fusion-flavored wonderment.”

– Glide

“Dawes expand their horizons and deliver a complex and brilliant album for our times…in summary, this is an album by a band totally at one with each other and is a great musical experience.”

– Americana UK

Fresh off very special appearances by Taylor Goldsmith (a widely acclaimed solo show as well as performing with Joni Mitchell, Marcus Mumford, and Goose) at this past weekend’s Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI, Dawes will further celebrate MISADVENTURES OF DOOMSCROLLER with a non-stop live schedule including headline shows, festival performances, a summer run with The Head and The Heart, and a very special co-headline tour with GRAMMY® Award-nominated Canadian artist Bahamas. “An Evening with Dawes and Bahamas” will see both acts performing together for two unique live sets, with Dawes backing Bahamas and Bahamas then joining Dawes for an unprecedented collaborative performance. The tour begins September 7 at Knoxville, TN’s Bijou Theatre, and then travels the US through the month. Other highlights include a “Tom Petty Dreamset” at Indianapolis, IN’s All In Music & Arts Festival, led by Dawes and featuring a surprise lineup of special guests (Sunday, September 4).
