If you grew up in a certain era and liked punk/grunge/whatever the kids are calling nowadays, you know Dinosaur Jr.
They didn't fall off the map due to lack of talent, or drugs, or any of the other host of pitfalls can faze a band of that ilk. They're back and that's great!
Dinosaur Jr. is an American alternative rock band formed in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1984. Originally called Dinosaur, prior to legal issues that forced the group to change their name, the band disbanded in 1997 until reuniting in 2005. Guitarist J Mascis, bassist Lou Barlow, and drummer Murph were the band's founding and current members; Mascis has been the group's sole continuous member.
Their distinct sound, characterized by high gain, extensive use of feedback and distortion, and frontman J Mascis's melodic guitar solos, was highly influential in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s.
I Bet On Sky, Dinosaur Jr.'s third album since the reunion of original trio J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph, will be released September 17 in the UK & later that week in Europe via PIAS and September 18 in North America via Jagjaguwar Records.
