A continuación la traducción de la sinopsis que pueden encontrar en el sitio oficial.

 A pesar de la crisis que enfrentó la industria discográfica en el año 2012, Dave Matthews Band se convirtió en la única banda del mundo en debutar en lo más alto de los conteos de Billboard con sus seis albums de estudio, vendiendo más de 33 millones de albums. Un éxito increíble, más aún si consideramos que no fue a través de las promociones habituales de la industria discográfica si no gracias a los fans y a sus eternos tours: más de 2000 conciertos y y una cantidad de espectadores record que hizo de la Dave Matthews Band el acto musical más grande de la escena musical Americana.

Nadie nunca había intentado una reconstrucción tan detallada de las complejas dinámicas y las circunstancias cruciales que llevaron al nacimiento, el crecimiento y el éxito luego de los complejos años de crisis creativa y la temprana muerte de LeRoi Moore, ahora instalado como el renacimiento de uno de los grupos musicales más originales del mundo, hacedores de un sonido único que fluctuó por diferentes géneros, modas y sonidos siendo populares a través de los años, siempre escapando un palabra que los definiera. Corsina Andriano, presidente del sitio italiano DMB Con-Fusion y una de las mayores conocedoras de la historia americana de la banda, ha trasladado su entusiasmo de seguidora a una rigurosa y muy bien documentada búsqueda que ha sido verificada y enriquecida gracias al contacto directo y sostenido con los músicos y su entorno, para así rastrear la historia de la Dave Matthews Band desde los primeros conciertos en Charlottesville hasta el éxito y los tours alrededor del mundo. Un relato cautivador lleno de eventos únicos y gente particular, con un análisis preciso de las letras analiza los origenes de las canciones, la realización de los albums de estudio, los eventos personales en las vidas de los miembros de la banda y las políticas de promoción que influenciaron el camino artístico y musical de la banda.

 Además de ser el único libro en ser aprobado y lanzado oficialmente por la banda, el "dmbook" no duda en mostrarnos objetiva y críticamente los hechos más sensibles de la banda. Sin embargo, no es la biografía definitiva ya que aún hay muchas páginas por ser escritas en la historia de la DMB. A la fecha, el dmbook es simplemente el más hermoso y exhaustivo libro sobre la Dave Matthews Band. Aquellos de ustedes quienes conocen a la banda, incluyendo los fans desde el comienzo, van a encontrar respuestas, hechos desconocidos y falsos mitos disipados. Aquellos que aún no conocen a la banda encontrarán una guía invaluable para un descubrimiento conmovedor.

Secret has been kept for quite a while, only a few knew what was going on with our dearest friend Corsina Andriano, head of Con-Fusion (DMB official Italian FC).
Four years (at least) of hard labor, interviews, white nights, writings, difficult choices, negociations, ... to turn this one-time life achievement to reality.

DMBook is the only and first officially in-depth look into DMB's career.
Everything is in there, early years, good times, bad times, Butch Taylor departure, Leroi's death, unreleased photographs, tour intimacy, studio and album stories, ... Every DMB fan will be happy to own his copy, and read the full story. Corsina didn't count the hours, didn't count the costs, flying every time she could to join the band on tour. They did take time to share their daily way of living and help her finalize her dream.
Through the years, she established very close links with Management, band and crew members, so she was able to better understand the who's and why's of the DMB family.
She now offers an unique journey into the very close circle of the band and their music with her new born baby, the DMBook.

Officially available in May through n°1 book publisher Arcana Edizioni, the book will be exclusively available from end of april on Con-Fusion website, before store release date.
If you're italian or can read it in that language, you can preorder it here.

For some rights matter, the book will for start only be available in italian. But ... good news is Arcana are more than interested in releasing an english version of the book as soon as possible. So things still need to be set up in that way. Therefore a request form will be online very soon on Con-fusion, so everyone who wants the english version will be able to register on that waiting list. (the english release will depend on the amount of people wishing to get it. So the more we'll be, the more chance we have!!)

So stay tuned for more very soon, as soon as we get the infos !!

There is a new book about the Dave Matthews Band available, but it's only in Italian for now. Corsina Andriano, who runs the Italian DMB fan site Con-Fusion wrote a comprehensive book about the band. The book is being hailed as the most comprehensive on the band ever written (you can read an English synopsis here.

If you're pretty good at Italian (or just watched The Godfather so much you can capisce) you can pre-order the book here. The book will be translated into English "soon", but the English version is not available yet. You can keep checking back here and we'll update when it's available. Corsina really knows her DMB, so it's one of (if not the) most info-packed books on the band ever.

Interview About the New Italian DMBook
Posted by Jake Vigliotti in Random Appearances at 8:24am on Friday, Jun 6th, 2014

You may recall a mention of a new Dave Matthews Band book coming to America soon - it is written by Corsina Andriano, of Con Fusion - the Italian DMB Fan site. The good folks over at DMBLA - a Spanish Language DMB fan site with a focus on Central and South America, recently interviewed Corsina regarding her book.

Si puedes leer Espanol, vaya con Dios. If you don't know a Cahahuate from a mierda chimichanga, you are in luck. There is an English translation available - and you can read that here.

The book will be available "soon" in English. We'll keep you posted on that. Because that's how we roll.

DMBLA English Translation

By Jake Vigliotti
6/6/14

1) Why did you wanted to write this book? How the idea came to be, was it yours or the proposal came from the band?

I was asked to write a book about the DMB for the Italian market. I was scared, but many people and journalists pushed me, because I'm a good writer and I have an in-depth knowledge of the band. There are only 3 books about the DMB: Step Into The Light, Music for The People and So Much To Say, but they do not tell the real story of the band. There are many mistakes in the Step Into The Light and Music for The People and they are old. So Much To Say is a fan book that goes through the band's evolution without much depth and without the main steps and events that determined profound changes.
Moreover, whenever I talked to US fans (even the more knowledgeable ones), I was always surprised to notice that their actual knowledge of the band was very superficial. This urged me to write a book that had to be complete and exhaustive: it had to talk not only about the various phases the DMB went through but also about their personal relationships, the origin of their albums, the meaning of their songs, and the characteristics of their management. A book that would highlight the heart of the band and the secret of their success.

2) How was the investigation process and interviews? Since the band is most of the time touring and you live in Italy. How long did it take you to write it?

I didn't ask for “official interviews”, except for a few (and they are documented in the Bibliography and References). At first I asked the management for some official photos, including the one on the book cover. When I was asked to write a book on the Dave Matthews Band, I purposely decided to do it freely and with the only constraint to respect the band's privacy. Traveling with them in recent years I've had long conversations with the musicians, crew and management, so it is obvious that I've got to know the band and its history very closely and from a vantage point. However, none of those private conversations have been reported in this book, at least not directly. To be fair, I decided to document them with bibliographic research that supported what I was told by the people directly involved. Nothing about the history and evolution of the DMB is the result of my personal considerations or conjectures. Therefore, the book is the result of two years of research and of the effort to cross-check the information known to me with what has been officially published (there are many articles unknown to the fan base. Many people in Charlottesville helped me find them). I started to research and I wrote the first 3 chapters on 2011. Then, for personal reasons, I stopped for more than one year....
I did not write a word during all that time. I started writing the book in February 2013 and I finished on December 27, 2013. I am a psychiatrist, and my job at the hospital is very demanding, but during those months I dedicated all my free time to researching, chronologically listening to ALL the albums and bootlegs, and writing.

3) What are we going to be able to find on your book that we are not going to find on any other about the DMB?

There is the history of the DMB from its members' point of view, not the fans'. You will find many unknown and curious episodes, some of which were unknown to me as well (unknown to very many people, in fact). Even more interesting, you will read about what really happened in the crucial years between 2006 and 2008, when the band went through a deep crisis, and how they managed to overcome it. I think this is going to be a big surprise for the worldwide DMB fanbase.

4) In what percentage was the band involved in the creative process? Besides being interviewed, how involved where they with it?

As I said before, the band was not involved in the creative process. I gathered all the information I needed to write this kind of book while traveling and talking with the band members and the crew and while working with their management. Last year my editor and my team of readers encouraged me to publish the book abroad first (in English), because there is no other book like this one. I talked to Dave about this idea, and we talked about my doubts and questions about the origin of some songs. I also talked to the management. They wanted to read it and asked me to send them the rough copy before contacting a publisher. I sent it over to the management and the band.

5) Which was the most difficult part to write and why?

Many parts of the book were tough to write because of their emotional significance: the relationship among Dave, Mark Roebuck and Haines Fullerton, for example. That chapter was very tricky: I knew that Mark Roebuck wasn't very happy about other articles people wrote about this, so I interviewed him and I sent him my chapter. He liked it a lot. Writing about LeRoi's accident and death wasn't easy either. From a more technical point of view I wanted to write a book for the general public, not only DMB fans. I wanted to arouse the interest of music lovers and people who only know the band's name (or don't know the band at all). Therefore, I studied the band's musical evolution from the origin of their albums and their songs to Dave's songwriting style, to the musician's point of view. It has been a fascinating discovery for me as well.

6) Did you had complete freedom to write about anything or was it something you left out?

As I said before, I was totally free to write about everything, with the only constraint to respect the band's privacy.

7) When writing about anything we like sometimes we find it difficult to remain objective because we are emotionally attached with the subject of our story, in this case DMB. How was your work and writing process as a writer to keep a neutral line of thought throughout?

I would like to say that the DMBook is not a fan book. Obviously, I am passionate about the band, but I stopped being a “fan” the moment I started working with them and their management. This happened a few years ago. Your point of view changes completely when you somehow become a part of the organization and mechanisms revolving around the band. You become more objective, because you have to be able to see the problems as well, especially the ones in the relationship between the overall organization of the band and foreign countries.
The way you listen to their music or attend a concert changes as well. My editor and my publisher at Arcana Edizioni (the #1 publishing house in Italy as far as music books are concerned) told me that I managed to write a book that is “really excellent, both as a factual work and from a fan's point of view”. My editor also said that even though he is a fan, he would have never dared to commission a book about the DMB because he thought it was a “really too complicated and hard challenge” but that I managed to do it.

8) As a DMB follower and fan, what new things did you find out about the band during the writing process of the book?

As a DMB fan I have discovered many things while traveling with them. I had the opportunity of talking with them and having many good times and fun with each other in a very family like atmosphere. This experience gave me the chance to identify with the band and their point of view, to observe their world from a perspective that is completely different from a fan's. Actually during the writing process I did not discovered anything new. But I think the fans most certainly will.

9) Why did you choose to write it in Italian first and not in English? I understand there is going to be a translation later.

I am a perfectionist. When I started writing the book for the Italian market, I discovered a lot of precious material unknown to many hardcore fans. I decided to go in-depth, so I was asked to publish abroad first, in English. As I said before, I talked about it with the band and management.
However, to be able to publish in English worldwide with the management's approval I had to wait for their priorities, and that's what I decided to do. I waited. Publish abroad first, then in Italy.
Due to personal and family reasons, last January I decided to publish the book in Italy first, because I wanted my parents to see it (my dad is a big fan). I talked to the management and this is why the book will be published in Italy first.

10) What is your favorite anecdote from the book?

That's a difficult question! There a so many...One of them is really intriguing. Last summer I interviewed tour director Geoff Trump. After the interview he introduced me to his wife, and he told her that I worked with the band and I was writing a book about them. This is what I write in the book: “I smile at the thought that an Italian undertook this task, and I remember when I stumbled upon a Sociology dissertation during my research. The paper was written around 2000 by an American student. Its subject was the cultural incompatibility between DMB and Italy which, according to the American author, is the reason why the band could never be understood in Italy.
I read the dissertation in utter disbelief, mostly because it had a lot of prejudices and silly beliefs, so much so that I still ask myself why he chose that subject and I wonder if he got a good grade for it. I'm not going to cite the dissertation but it's out there, I swear”.

11) Finally, why should dmb fans buy the book?

Because it's the only in-depth book about the DMB and also because, as my publisher said, “it's a very well written and fascinating masterpiece” (I'm not saying it, he said it, ok?)

Desde Italia nos llega el primer libro autorizado sobre la Dave Matthews Band.

Para muchos, DMB, era una banda que no salía de sus fronteras y solo sus compatriotas tenían la fortuna de verlos en vivo. Conciertos fuera de sus tierras eran muy escasos, de vez en cuando una pasada por Europa y en Latinoamérica solo brillaron algunas presentaciones en Brasil.
En esos tiempos, y por varios años, fui dueño de la querida página DMBla y ahí la información llegaba gracias a páginas gringas como: Ants Marching, Weekly Davespeak, etc.

Con el tiempo, fuera de Estados Unidos, mucha gente trabajó para promocionar la banda en sus respectivos países; y con estas personas se formó la querida “Familia DMB”. Páginas con información en idioma local aparecieron por todo el mundo. Sitios como: DMBrasil (gracias a Nathalie Colas y Rodrigo Simas), DMBPortugal (gracias a Inês Ventura), DMBargentina (gracias a Fabio Belaich). En DMBLa me ayudó mucha gente para “divulgar la palabra” en la región, entre ellos: Matías Galván (Arg), Miguel Puyó (Arg), Juan Infante (Perú), María Salomé (Arg), Matias Tahuil (Arg), Ernesto Decastro (Arg) y de seguro alguno se me olvida. Ahora en DMBChile, junto con Andrés Goñi seguimos adelante.

A través del tiempo, DMB ha sido el punto de encuentro obligado para miles de amantes de la buena música alrededor del mundo. Superando incluso, las obvias diferencias culturales e idiomáticas. En perspectiva, aquellos que seguimos su carrera a la distancia, encontramos ingeniosas formas de hacer oír nuestro mensaje. En ese particular mundo, se destaca el sitio DMB Con-Fusion, web italiana que lleva años difundiendo todo lo referente a la Dave Matthews Band. Corsina Andriano es su rol de presidenta, fue premiada con el gran honor de escribir el primer libro autorizado por la banda. Es tremendo lo que consiguió nuestra querida Corsina, sí tomamos en cuenta su lejanía con Charlottesville.

¿Por qué contar esto? Simple, para que podamos tener real noción de dónde viene este “DMBook”. Proyecto que resume el esfuerzo y la pasión con el que fuera realizado. Horas de viajes, entrevistas y búsqueda incesante. Información que debiéramos gratamente conocer, sabiendo de quién viene esta obra, cuáles son sus raíces y cuál es el sentimiento que lleva a escribirlo. Está demás decir que hay un gran cariño de por medio y es justo que se sepa.
Es un libro creado desde el corazón con el cariño por la banda… De seguro será lectura obligatoria para cualquier real admirador.

Como dice en su página oficial, este libro puede contener respuestas, algunos hechos desconocidos y tal vez derribe algunos mitos creados en torno a la banda. Sin dudas tendrá mucho material inédito y, de seguro, puede hacernos redescubrir aquello que amamos.
