Dinosaur Jr. launching new album and tour

Written by Scott Mervis on .

 

dinoGreat news this morning for Dinosaur Jr. fans: Not only is there a new album on the way, but also an extended tour (that includes a date at Mr. Smalls on Oct. 9 -- tickets on sale at 10 a.m. June 3 at ticketweb.com; $25).

J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph, who reunited in 2005, will release "Give a Glimpse Of What Yer Not" on Aug. 5 on Jagjaguwar. As the label notes, the trio has now released more albums in the 21st Century than they did in the 20th.

Mascis, who last played here solo at Club Cafe in 2014,  wrote nine of the 11 songs, and Barlow (also of Sebadoh) wrote and sings the other two.

The band is previewing a song on "Later...with Jools Holland" tonight (May 23) and releasing the single "Tiny" on May 24.
