Dinosaur Pile-Up Announce Spring Headline Tour, Reveal ‘Round the Bend’ Video
Dinosaur Pile-Up are about to pile up some miles on tour this spring, booking just over a month of dates that will kick off April 16 in Cape Coral, Florida.
The run will primarily be a headline tour, with the exception of festival dates and two shows where they'll provide support for Starset. Among the festivals played during the run include Epicenter, Shaky Knees, Welcome to Rockville, Sonic Temple and Rocklahoma. Plus, they're also on board for the Lunatic Luau and Pointfest radio festivals.
Pre-sale tickets are available beginning this Wednesday (Feb. 19) at 10AM local time, with general on-sale beginning Friday (Feb. 21) at 10AM local time. For up-to-date ticketing information, please visit www.dinosaurpileup.com.
The new dates come as Dinosaur Pile-Up dig a little deeper into their Celebrity Mansions album. The band just unleashed a new animated video for "Round the Bend," created by Toon53 Productions.
Frontman Matt Bigland commented on the clip, stating, “’Round the Bend’ is about being at the very edge of your emotional strength. I wrote it when I was at a breaking point of sorts, where I felt like what I'd been trying to make happen with the band for twelve years wasn't in fact going to happen. When I wrote the song and whenever I listened to the demo, I'd imagine this short film playing out in my head – the story was extremely vivid in my mind and really heart-breaking. Seeing yourself immortalized as a cartoon is always a trip, but the end result had us all bouncing off the walls!” Check out the clip below.
