Dinosaur Pile-Up to Release Full Length Album in U.S., 2/25
2013 proved to be a big year for U.K. band, Dinosaur Pile-Up. They released their first single and EP, both titled Peninsula, here in the U.S. with much success. Dinosaur Pile-Up (DPU) raided the U.S. music scene gaining new fans across the nation with their first ever North American tour opening for You Me At Six this past fall. With fans eagerly awaiting more from DPU and press calling them "fresh and earnest," the band is excited to announce the U.S. release of their full-length album, Nature Nurtureon February 25th. Currently back home in the U.K. where they are headlining shows, DPU is anxious to get back to the states. Dinosaur Pile-Up plans to tour North American following the release of their album next year.
Nature Nurture is DPU's first full-length album to be released in the U.S. after the release of their EP Peninsula that dropped here this past October. The single has been steadily gaining airplay on radio stations across the nation including KNDD-Seattle, Live 105-San Francisco, KNRK-Portland, KRBZ-Kansas City, WEQX-Albany and many more. Peninsula was a taste of what's to come from their new album, but the guys from DPU say the best is yet to come, stating "We've worked really hard on this album and it was important for us to release the songs on our EP first for everyone to understand who we are as a band and that our music will definitely give you a kick in the face. We want people to connect with these songs and just go crazy over them and we think that will happen with this album." Their first single, "Peninsula," garnered much attention from both fans and press and amassed thousands of views on the VEVO premiere of their music video.
