Dave Matthews Band is working on a new album.

The new studio effort will be a follow-up to 2012's Away from the World.

Matthews tells Rolling Stone, "There are some songs the band has been playing for a long time and then whenever I start messing around in the studio, I start writing, so hopefully we can come up with something worth listening to."

Dave is working with producer Rob Cavallo and engineer Doug McKean.  He worked with that duo on 2009's Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King.
In addition to the time in the studio, the Dave Matthews Band will play a string of shows in Matthews' native county, South Africa.  Later this year, they will also play in South America.
