Dinosaur Pile-Up have announced a live in-store UK tour to celebrate the release of their highly anticipated forthcoming fourth album Celebrity Mansions, out on June 7th via Parlophone Records.
Kicking off on album release day at Leeds’ Belgrave Music Hall, the band will play a further four live in-stores across the country including Bristol, London, Kingston and Brighton. Shows either take place in neighbouring venues to local record shops, in conjunction with specific retailers or in the record stores themselves. Tickets can be purchased as a package along with album pre-orders here.
The return of Dinosaur Pile-Up has been met by an ecstatic reaction from both fans and media alike. Their new single ‘Back Foot’ is proving a radio hit with great support coming from Radio 1 with Annie Mac, Jack Saunders and Dan P Carter particularly big fans of the song at the station. ‘Back Foot’ is also getting played across Radio X, features on the playlist of Kerrang Radio and Kerrang TV have added the brilliant video to their playlist too.
‘Back Foot’ takes the slacker rock template and applies a coating of gonzo heavy metal, resulting in the most fun combination of guitar, bass and drums you’ve heard in an age. The track follows the release of lead single ‘Thrash Metal Cassette’, which also received great radio support from Radio 1, Radio X and Kerrang Radio.
Dinosaur Pile-Up’s forthcoming album Celebrity Mansions is a record that sizzles with big melodies, skewered through with raw, intoxicating emotion.
Regarding the album, Matt says, “It’s a reference to when we were on tour, questioning whether we’d wasted our lives doing this, wondering if we’d ever get a break. I’d see what you’d call ‘Influencers’ on Instagram. Popstars making money from being attractive. People with seemingly nothing to say. And I’d just think, ‘Surely there’s more to life than this. Surely people want more than this. Surely they want some substance. I mean, we’re talking about music. It matters.'”
Following the in-store dates Dinosaur Pile-Up will play Download Festival before embarking on a huge run across the US with Shinedown throughout June and July.
Dinosaur Pile-Up are set to ruffle feathers and break the mould as they release their most punk rock and in-your-face material to date on their brand new major label deal. WithCelebrity Mansions they’re set to prove how vital and pivotal British rock music is today.
