Published Jan 27, 2011Last fall, Toronto, ON indie poppers Dinosaur Bones announced that they had signed with Dine Alone Records. While the group almost immediately unleashed digital-only EP Birthright via the imprint, the bigger news was that the outfit were prepping a full-length, My Divider, to be released sometime in 2011. Well, three months on, Dinosaur Bones are finally dishing out some concrete details on their new set: it will be issued March 8.
As with Birthright, the new album was recorded and mixed by Jon Drew (Tokyo Police Club, Fucked Up, Arkells). The 11-song set is said to feature a "collage of influence, combining the swagger and grit of NYC garage with the earnest emotion of Radiohead and the Smiths." A press release further describes the disc as "impactful and engaging" and "a glimpse into to the extent of what Dinosaur Bones brings to stereo or stage."
With that in mind, if you want to check out the group's new tunes before My Divider's release, they will be starting up a tour of Ontario this Friday (January 29). Check out the dates below.
