Earplugs Mandatory: Dinosaur Jr. Head Out Across North America, Play Pile of Canadian Dates

Earplugs Mandatory: Dinosaur Jr. Head Out Across North America, Play Pile of Canadian Dates
Eardrums across North America can again commence cowering: Dinosaur Jr. are going back on tour. And if recent reviews are any indication of what we can expect, the band will be unfathomably loud once again.

Dinosaur Jr. will be promoting their new album, Farm, the second long-player since the band's original line-up of guitarist J. Mascis, bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph reformed in 2005.

As previously reported, the album, released on Jagjaguwar, is the follow-up to 2007's critically acclaimed Beyond, a record that saw Dinosaur Jr. embark on a widely successful "reunion" tour.

The long run of dates this summer/fall has the group playing throughout the U.S., as well as popping up to Canada for shows in Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria.

Barlow's other project, Lou Barlow + the Missingmen, will warm up on select dates. Yeah, leave it to the ever-prolific Barlow (ex-Sebadoh, Folk Implosion, Sentridoh, etc.) to play two sets in one night at the ripe age of 43.
