Is it just me, or does Dave Matthews Band spend more time touring than actually making albums? It seems like the guys are always on the road, even when their newer stuff is barely identifiable (the last new tune of theirs that rings a bell is "Where Are You Going" … and that was from 2002's Busted Stuff).

I like the jam-band, but it would be great if the musicians could spice things up a bit and churn out quality new offerings, rather than those from the days of yore. I think they're due for another "What Would You Say" or "Crash Into Me." Even another "The Space Between" would be lovely, which hit the airwaves a whopping six years ago. Sigh. We'll see if they've still got it when they release a new CD via RCA before year's end.

Until then, get ready for another DMB tour. According to Billboard, the band will return to North America after a lineup of gigs overseas in May. The 36-date journey will kick-off July 8 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Ill., and conclude Oct 1-2 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Also on the docket: Mansfield, Mass. (Aug. 1-2); Hartford, Conn. (Aug. 4-5); Camden, N.J. (Aug. 7-8); Noblesville, Ind. (Aug. 17-18); East Troy, Wis. (Aug. 25-26); and West Palm Beach, Fla. (Sept. 14-15). Supporting acts will include Stephen Marley, Guster, Pete Yorn, the Roots, among others.

Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning April 21, and members of the Warehouse (the band's official fan group) can snag early tickets through April 9.
