The album is called “Important Things Humans Should Know”. Here is a picture of its cover:
Here is a exclusive stream of the opening track “Ezmerelda”, courtesy of our good friends over at 9Bullets.net:
You can pre-order the album on our BANDCAMP:
Here is the tracklisting:
The album will be released worldwide on April 7th, 2015 via our website, iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, Amazon, blah blah blah, and all those other hunky dory little download & stream sites. Additionally, we’ll be having a hometown release party on April 4th at DBA on Frenchmen if you want to come grab a physical copy early.
Can’t make it to New Orleans?
Don’t you worry, we’ll be doing a 4 month national tour to follow. We just posted 16 new dates on our sidebar, with many more pouring in everyday! Don’t see your city there yet? Don’t worry, we’re coming for ya!… Also, on or before the album’s release, our wonderful Kickstarter donors should be receiving their sweet gift packages in the mail. Again, so so so much thanks to everyone who made this project possible – we wouldn’t have been able to make it this dope without you.
So, did you get what you were looking for? Because if not, here’s a little icing to top it all off – a live rendition of “Ezmerelda” we just finished with our friends over at the Sugar Shack Sessions:
Today is the final day folks. Less than 18 hrs to go on our Kickstarter campaign. Now – more than any other time – is the time for you to step up and become a part of this awesome project! We’ve poured so much love into writing, drafting and demoing these songs, selecting the perfect producer and professional studio, putting all our cards on the line for this new album – join us! Let’s do it together! Whether it’s $500 or just $5, do what you can, and together let’s make the dopest album ever – let’s break DBRS into the mainstream – and without the help of nefarious record companies and industry hacks telling us what to do. Let’s do it ourselves.

P.S. Headlining night one of the Big What? Festival in Mebance, NC tonight! Midnight! Hope to see you there!
The first round of mixing is complete! After a day of working in the studio, Wes, Noah, and Bootsy are getting the album ready for mastering. We’re almost there! And now without further ado, the most beautiful nurse in St. Augustine, FL, Kat!
We’ve finished up all of the instrumental beds for the new album! It was great getting back into the studio and working with Wes, one of the best recording engineers around New Orleans. We’re really looking forward to how this new one turns out. Stay tuned for more updates.
Day three is over! We finished tracking all the songs for Vol. IV. Nothing left except for instrument overdubs and vocals. It’s getting close…
Day two is over! We made some more progress and knocked out a few new tunes. Things are looking good.
The first day of recording is over! The day went pretty well and we got a lot of work done. Not a bad start.
Volume III is almost finished being mixed/mastered, and so we need an album cover pronto! Help us decide – which of the 3 samples below is your favorite?
So, what’s it gonna be – #1, #2, or #3? Let us know on our Facebook wall or in the comments section below and we’ll post the winner next week. ~ DBRS
Hello folks! Hope everyone stuffed their faces yesterday – I know we all did. Now that Thanksgiving’s past I figured we’d give you a little update for how we’ll be finishing off the year…
Throughout the rest of November we’ll be finishing overdubbing Volume Three at the Music Shed here in New Orleans. Then, come December, while Vol. III’s shipped off for mixing and mastering, we’ll be hitting the road once again for a few little short trips here and there, East and West… Six new showdates just posted + more to come! —–>
Oh, and this Sunday we’ll be making a big little announcement with a whole host of prizes available for those who participate.
Need a hint?
Has a little something to do with this:
We wrapped up day five of recording yesterday and things are going really well. Only a few more days and the album will be finished. Things are looking good.
