Dinosaur Pile Up Release New Single Back Foot From Upcoming Album

Tuesday, 30 April 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Dinosaur Pile Up have released a new single.

Back Foot is the second song to be taken from their upcoming album, ‘Celebrity Mansions’, which is due for release on June 7 via Parlophone Records.

After dropping Thrash Metal Cassette in March, the heavy rock track has a distinctly 1990s grunge-come-pop-punk aesthetic. The slacker rock band team a heavily distorted guitar riff in the chorus with an almost rapped verse from front man Matt Bigland. Its comical accompanying video depicts the group’s quest for fame via a mind-numbing nine to five job and the endless nag of parents.

Regarding the new album, Bigland commented:

“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.’”

Dinosaur Pile Up have lined up a slot at Download festival this summer, as well as supporting Shinedown on tour across the US.

Photo: Ivana Kličković Cate Le Bon has never been easy to pin down. Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
