Dinosaur Pile-Up Give Alt-Rock a Jolt on New Song ‘Back Foot’
Another new song off Dinosaur Pile-Up's forthcoming album, Celebrity Mansions, has been released. The music video for "Back Foot" shows the band in every day scenarios, both monotonous and debaucherous.
The song is a weighty mixture of driving, stomping metallic rhythms and snotty alternative driven by the surprisingly effective and playful rap cadence of vocalist / guitarist Matt Bigland.
Watch the video below and head here to listen to the band's first Celebrity Mansions single, "Thrash Metal Cassette."
Speaking about Dinosaur Pile-Up's fourth album, Bigland said, "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.'"
