New Single From Upcoming Album With Dinosaur Jr!

Dinosaur Jr. is an American rock band formed in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1984, originally simply called Dinosaur until legal issues forced a change in name.

The band was founded by J Mascis (guitar, vocals, primary songwriter), Lou Barlow (bass, vocals), and Murph (drums). After three albums on independent labelsearned the band a reputation as one of the formative influences on American alternative rock, creative tension led to Mascis firing Barlow, who later formedSebadoh and Folk Implosion. His replacement, Mike Johnson came aboard for three major-label albums. Murph eventually quit, with Mascis taking over drum duties on the band’s albums before the group disbanded in 1997. The original lineup reformed in 2005, releasing three albums thereafter.

Mascis’s drawling vocals and distinct guitar sound, hearkening back to 1960s and ’70s classic rock and characterized by extensive use of feedback and distortion, were highly influential in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s.

In an interview with The Aquarian Weekly in December 2015, Murph confirmed the band had entered the studio to begin working on their follow up to I Bet on Sky, which according to him, should be out in the Summer of 2016.On May 2016, Dinosaur Jr. revealed that their third album for Jagjaguwar will be out on August 5 and will be called Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not.
