Dinosaur Pile-Up are going to play a few instores next month.
The shows will celebrate the release of their upcoming record ‘Celebrity Mansions’, due on 7th June via Parlophone Records.
“It’s a reference to when we were on tour,” says Matt Bigland of the album’s title, “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. Pop stars 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’.”
