Additionally, a new documentary about Dawes provides a behind the scenes look at the making of their latest album, We’re All Gonna Die. Said director Kevin Hayes about the film, "I've been working with the boys for ten years and when I heard they were making a record in LA with Blake Mills and Greg Koller I knew something special was gonna go down. This movie tells some of the story and lets Dawes’ fans see the band in a unique way." 

The band recently appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to perform their latest single, “Roll With The Punches.” The band was also a guest on Andrew Bird’s Live from the Great Room Facebook Live performance series, where Dawes and Bird performed songs from both their respective catalogues.

Dawes premiered their video for “Roll With The Punches,” featuring Mandy Moore and directed by Dan Henry (Kurt Vile, Jack White), on February 14th via Entertainment Weekly. On the same day, as a surprise gift to fans, Dawes released their streaming-only live album, We’re All Gonna Live. The band recorded the fifteen-song release during the first four shows on their current, “An Evening With Dawes” tour.
