U.K. Band Dinosaur to Release Debut U.S. Album in Early 2014
New Found Glory made a huge name for themselves back in 2002 with their Sticks and Stonesalbum infusing the likes of rock, punk, emo, and pop. U.K. band Dinosaur Pile-Up, is bringing that familiar sound and feeling back with their new album, Nature Nurture that will have all early 2000 pop-punk fans itching for more. Infusing their pop-punk sounds with a bit of British pop from the sixties, Nature Nurture promises to give listeners a "kick in the face" as lead singer, Matt Bigland, likes to say. Already having toured with The Pixies, Cage The Elephant, and Fidlar, Dinosaur Pile-Up can't wait to share their music in America.
Dinosaur Pile-Up formed in 2007 and their debut album Growing Pains led them to much critical acclaim. They quickly became one of the hottest bands of a new generation of U.K. rock acts. After two years on the road in support of the record, the band went back into the studio to record Nature Nurture, an album that Bigland says, "will make you feel something - good, bad, whatever. I wanted to drag whatever was inside of me kicking and screaming and dump it on the tape, so that whoever's listening to it can feel the same."
Dinosaur Pile-Up's first U.S. single, "Peninsula," is the definition of a grunge-heavy guitar and drums song that will leave fans reminiscing of the last crowded basement show they danced and moshed at. Gearing up for the release of their album in the U.S. in early 2014, Dinosaur Pile-Up plans to release their first single digitally in mid October. The band will be sweeping the nation beforehand though with a tour with U.K. band, You Me At Six.
