The unlikely Dinosaur Jr. reunion continues as the original line-up of the band (J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph) ready the release of their fourth album since getting back together in 2005.
The first taste of ‘Give a Glimpse Of What Yer Not’, the follow-up to 2012’s ‘I Bet On Sky’, was given with a performance of lead single ‘Tiny’ on ‘Later… with Jools Holland’. And the trio will be back in the UK later this year for a full-blown tour, including a London show at The O2 Forum Kentish Town on 18 November 2016.
‘Give a Glimpse’ features two songs written and sung by Sebadoh frontman Barlow, and nine by Mascis who, outside Dinosaur Jr., has been kept busy with a solo career and several side projects including glam group Sweet Apple, stoner metal band Witch, and the psychedelia of Heavy Blanket.
Dinosaur Jr. are considered one of the most significant American rock bands of the past 30 years with their first three albums – ‘Dinosaur’, ‘You’re Living All Over Me’, and ‘Bug’ – helping bring guitar back into indie rock, several years before Nirvana.
