(TRR) – British rock trio Dinosaur Pile-Up have announced their new album Celebrity Mansions. The LP is due out on June 7 via Parlophone/Roadrunner. The band recently signed with Parlophone Records for their fourth studio effort. The album’s first single “Thrash Metal Cassette” can be streamed below.
“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,” frontman Matt Bigland said in a press release. “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.’”
The band are offering several bundles for purchase, which include the album on various formats including CD, vinyl, and digital download. The various packages include additional items such as t-shirts, tote bags, and pins.
The band’s last album Eleven Eleven was released in 2015. While the album did not chart particularly high, the lead single “11:11” was a hit on rock radio worldwide.
Dinosaur Pile-Up are set to play Download Festival in Donington, UK on June 16. From there, they will cross the pond to support Shinedown on a summer ampitheater run. The complete tour intinerary is listed below.
