The DBT Rock Show made a two night stop at the 9:30 Club last weekend. Due to a little learning,luck,and half sense we have some killer 3DD shot video and audio of DBT blowing shit up on night two. Enjoy!
The English Oceans tour officially begins tonight in Raleigh followed by Rock Shows Saturday night in Richmond and Sunday in Delaware. For another little taste of what the new songs sound and look like live check out this 3DD video from the recent 40 Watt shows of Til He’s Dead Or Rises. The part where Patterson comes in at the end of the chorus with “UNTIL HE’S DEAD……” is pure badass if you know what I mean. English Oceans is DBT’s highest Billboard debut to date coming in the first week at sixteen! I can’t ever remember being more pumped for shows and spirits are indeed high all over so by all means get to a show if you can. See y’all at the Rock Show tonight(and all over).
English Oceans is out officially today to the best reviews and reception DBT has had since maybe they started off a record with a song about sister fucking. When I checked this afternoon on Amazon’s best seller list English Oceans was sitting at number 4 behind the Frozen soundtrack,Beck,and Pharrell(!). DBT’s good friend Jason Thrasher was on hand at the 40 Watt a few weeks ago with his cameras the night before the homecoming shows started and he released this one today. Hood is playing that red SG like a man possessed which is the sure sign that he’s getting off and that this is a great Cooley song. Jay is ripping on his red SG and the EZY-B and Matt Patton are in the pocket with big smiles all the way around. David Barbe recorded the audio on this live take so turn it up if you can. DBT!
With the impending excitement building towards the actual official release of English Oceans next week there has been all kinds of news on the DBT front over the last few days. The latest word from the Hood came out yesterday and it not only gave a shout out and thanks to everyone over on the 3DD message board for raising $5,000 for Nuci’s Space it also included links to streams of the new record plus the exciting news that DBT will be performing on Conan March 6th. Tickets went on sale today for a just announced special English Oceans release rock show at Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever in Los Angeles. It’s a tiny venue so hop on over and grab that ticket son as this one is sure to sell out. If you have not pre-ordered English Oceans yet you might want to do it from the DBT store as you will get a special download of what they are calling The Dragon Pants EP(5 songs you won’t be able to get anywhere else). And speaking of exclusive here’s another 3DD video from the recent homecoming stand at the 40 Watt. Turn it up if you can.
In a bit under 15 days the Rock Show will be making a return trip over seas for a single show in Spain,heading to Texas for another one off and then points in between before a return to the site of so many triumphant past performances for the bands fifth Bonnaroo show. Tickets are now on sale for most of these from DBT’s baseline ticketing. See y’all at the June Rock Shows,I’m certain it won’t snow.

For those lucky enough to spend Valentines Day at the fabulous 40 Watt in Athens here’s a little taste of the middle night’s opener. 3DD made video and audio minus the planes,trains,and automobiles it took to make it happen.
Peter Buck sat in with DBT on Saturday night at the 40 Watt for three songs. Here he is helping bring some of that famous 12 string jingle jangle on one of Cooley’s best new songs from English Oceans.
What we have here is a killer acoustic take of the title track of the new DBT record. This video was recorded in Birmingham back in November with Hood and Cooley standing right next to each other with some interesting instrumentation from the rest of the guys. I can see all kinds of interesting takes on these tunes as DBT in radio stations and record stores once the band gets out on the road. More please.
