With the winter blues hot on our heels, we have good news for fans of the band that refuses to sit still.
This past week, Toronto indie-rockers Dinosaur Bones revealed that their first full-length album, My Divider, will be hitting retailers on March 8th.
This news comes hot on the heels of other major announcements from a band that doesn't mind working hard for their success. It was just a few months back that Dinosaur Bones signed on board with Dine Alone Records, news which only narrowly preceeded the release of their EP Birthright.
Now we've learned that somehow, amid the chaos of their constant touring, the members of Dinosaur Bones have found their way back to the recording studio with acclaimed Canadian producer Jon Drew, who worked with the group on their previous release (and who's well known for his work with such Canadian groups as Tokyo Police Club and Arkells).
A press release on the album cites influence from the likes of The Walkmen and Chavez, and promises "...a sound that is equal parts fuzzed out indie rock and heartfelt emotion." Of course, why try to imagine what's to come, when you can just have a sneak-peek of the album? Take a look below for a free listen and download of Royalty, the first track released from My Divider.
If you missed their most recent show in Toronto just a few days ago, there's no shortage of opportunities to check out a live performance from Dinosaur Bones before they leave this side of the continent and head out west to promote the new album in the spring. Here's a look at a few stops on the group's full dance card:
