DAVE MATTHEWS BAND,

BIG WHISKEY AND THE GROOGRUX KING

DMB's studio efforts have never had the intensity of their live shows—until now. Inspired by the tragic death of saxophonist LeRoi "Big Whiskey" Moore, the band blends wistful turns ("Dive In") with Foo Fighters–like roar ("Time Bomb"), giving their studio material the soul it's been lacking.
