Dinosaur Pile-Up have announced a brand new podcast The Cosmic Barbecue, the first of the on-going series is available now on all DSPs here.
The Cosmic Barbecue finds Dinosaur Pile-Up’s Matt Bigland (vocals, guitar), Mike Sheils (drums) and Jim Cratchley (bass) discussing “everything and anything”. The first episode discusses the origins of the band, prompted by questions from fans, and is the band’s way of staying connected with each other and fans during the current coronavirus pandemic.
Introducing the new podcast series Matt says, “YO SHREDDERS!! We hope everybody is still safe and healthy and taking care of one another!! We know these are weird and hard times, and we KNOW how much it sucks that we’re not seeing so many of you out there on the road right now – so we figured we’d try and create another way for you guys to hang with us and feel connected right now.
“The ‘CBBQ’ will be full of stuff like DPU tour stories, us discussing our journey as a band, general DPU related memories, discussing why being a medieval knight would have been cool, that time Mike died for the second time, why sandwiches are great, how we met Jim and why he’s a powerful wizard etc etc. You know, cool stuff.
We’re kind of just rolling with it and seeing where it takes us, and right now due to quarantine we’re recording it all separately as best we can – so forgive us for the sub $10,000 production value lol. To be honest it sounds pretty cool in my opinion. ANYWAY. Whilst we’re all separated from each other we’re gonna keep on trying to find ways to stay connected, but we think this podcast is a great way to start.
We’re super stoked on it, and we’ll be trying to drop an episode roughly once a week – so make sure you tune in and tell your buds about it.”
