VH1 has added “Mercy 9.25.12,” an updated version of the band’s latest music video, which was unveiled last week in honor of the first-ever National Voter Registration Day (NVRD).  Building on the original “Mercy” video, which used images from 14,000+ fans to illustrate that “one by one, we can turn it around,” the band added a message from Dave Matthews about voting and an embedded link to headcount.org voter registration page. NVRD brought together volunteers, artists, celebrities, organizations and corporations for a single day of coordinated efforts around voter registration. In 2008, 75 million Americans eligible to vote didn’t; many because they weren’t registered. View “Mercy 9.25.12” at http://bit.ly/RYxeJ1.
“Mercy,” a #1 hit at Triple A radio, is the first single from Away From The World, which bowed at #1 on the Billboard 200 last month, making Dave Matthews Band the first group in chart history to have six consecutive studio albums debut atop the chart.
The group – which ranked as the biggest ticket seller worldwide of the past decade and has sold over 18 million tickets since its inception – is renowned for its live performances. “Matthews and his terrific players would have blown the roof off the place if there was one,” marveled the Orange County Register in a recent review while The Hollywood Reporter noted “after more than two decades on the road, there isn’t a stage built yet he [Matthews] can’t make feel like home.”
Dave Matthews Band – includes Carter Beauford (drums), Stefan Lessard (bass), Dave Matthews (vocals, guitar) and Boyd Tinsley (violin). Away From The World follows 2009’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. The group has sold a collective 37 million CDs and DVDs combined.
