Some exciting news people! It’s been 27 years and ten studio albums, but Dinosaur Jr show no signs of stopping. Today they announce a brand new record, the third since the original trio of J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph regrouped in 2005. Titled I Bet on Sky, it’s out on September 18th.

“There is nothing quite like a Dinosaur Jr. album. The best ones are always recognizable from the first notes. And even though J tries to trip us up by smearing “Don’t Pretend You Didn’t Know” with keyboards, it’s clear from the moment he starts his vocals that this is the one and only Dinosaur Jr., long reigning kings of Amherst, Massachusetts (and anywhere else they choose to hang their toques).” -Byron Coley
