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.

Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.

Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
