Dinosaur Pile-Up come bearing exciting news today as they announce their fourth studio album Celebrity Mansions, which is due for release in June. As well as this they’ve dropped lead single ‘Thrash Metal Cassette’ which is sure to turn some heads.
When speaking about the album, Celebrity Mansions, lead singer Matt Bigland says, “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.’”
‘Thrash Metal Cassette’ is the perfect taster of what’s to come, it’s big, it’s bold and it’s certainly not what people were expecting. This could be Dinosaur Pile-Up’s most ambitious release to date.
