Dinosaur Jr. announce new album, tour

Posted on

Levi Walton

Legendary alt-rockers Dinosaur Jr. will return in August with their eleventh studio album. Due out August 5, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not follows 2012’s I Bet on Sky. The Massachusetts band also announced an international tour that kicks off June 2 in Lyon, France and concludes November 19 in Manchester, England — with plenty of U.S. and European stops in between.

“Like every other Dinosaur Jr. record, it is fantastic,” former Black Flag singer Henry Rollins said in a video about the new album. “They are one of my favorite bands and one of the best live bands ever. I cannot wait for you to hear this record — you’re gonna love it.” Rollins’ relationship with the group dates back to the ’80s, when Dinosaur Jr. and Black Flag were both signed to the indie label SST Records.

Prior to today’s announcement, Dinosaur Jr. were already slated to play a handful of gigs with Jane’s Addiction this summer. Check out the group’s complete itinerary below, along with Rollins’ video about Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not.
