The deluxe bundle includes a LP version of I Bet On Sky in gorgeous gatefold litho-wrapped jacket, CD version of the album in six-panel wallet, limited-edition 7″ featuring two brand-new, non-album tracks: “Now the Fall” and “Ricochet,” 17″ x 22″ glossy poster featuring artwork by Travis Millard and digital download code for the entire album, redeemable on September 4th.

Early Praise for I Bet On Sky

“It sounds like a record that they could have released 20 years ago… There aren’t many bands that were once really big that break up, get back together and find that original magic. It just doesn’t really happen very often, but this is a band that I think has found that original magic, and this is a great-sounding record.” – NPR’s All Songs Considered

“Reunions don’t usually work out this well.” – Rolling Stone

Stream Dinosaur Jr.’s “Watch The Corners,” from I Bet On Sky, Read New J Mascis Interview at Rolling Stone

Listen up! Dinosaur Jr. brings you the first single off their forthcoming album, I Bet On Sky. Titled “Watch The Corners,” the track premiered today at Rolling Stone, who posted the song along with an interview with J Mascis. “I guess on this record, I wasn’t as worried if we could play the songs live. [On] the other two records [2007's Beyond and 2009's Farm], I was thinking of it being more songs that we could play live and tour more. I guess that’s what’s kind of different about this album: I just did what I felt would sound good,” tells Mascis. Read the full interview and stream “Watch The Corners” HERE.

Dinosaur Jr. begins their tour in August. See full list of tour dates HERE.

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

See Dinosaur Jr live in concert. In addition to over 25 venue shows, they’ll play Green Music, 80/35 Music, MidPoint Music, LouFest 2012 and Pygmalion Festivals. All dates listed below! Read the rest of this entry »
