Dinosaur Pile-Up have announced their fourth album Celebrity Mansions for release on June 7th via their brand new partnership with Parlophone Records. Pre-order the album via the band’s website here.

To mark the announcement the band have released the new single ‘Thrash Metal Cassette’, which premiered last night as Daniel P. Carter’s ‘Rockest Record’ on the Radio 1 Rock Show. The song smacks you in the face then spits on the floor with its chugging grunge riffs and enraptured punk chorus celebrating life on the road as a touring rock band.

Regarding the forthcoming album Celebrity Mansions, Matt says, “It’s a reference to when we were on tour, questioning whether we’d wasted our lives doing this, wondering if we’d ever get a break. I’d see what you’d call ‘Influencers’ on Instagram. Popstars making money from being attractive. People with seemingly nothing to say. And I’d just think, ‘Surely there’s more to life than this. Surely people want more than this. Surely they want some substance. I mean, we’re talking about music. It matters.’”
