Dinosaur Pile-Up have released the video for their latest single ‘Round The Bend’, which premiered in the US with Consequence Of Sound and is taken from the acclaimed new album Celebrity Mansionsout now via Parlophone.
Created by Toon53 Productions, the animated video depicts a heart-wrenching story of lost lovers and a car-ride gone wrong.
Regarding ‘Round The Bend’ frontman Matt Bigland says, “‘Round The Bend’ is about being at the very edge of your emotional strength. I wrote it when I was at a breaking point of sorts, where I felt like what I’d been trying to make happen with the band for 12 years wasn’t in fact going to happen. When I wrote the song and whenever I listened to the demo, I’d imagine this short film playing out in my head – the story was extremely vivid in my mind and really heart breaking. Seeing yourself immortalized as a cartoon is always a trip, but the end result had us all bouncing off the walls!”
Dinosaur Pile-Up have released the video to mark the announcement of their largest US headline tour yet, which will see them headline 15 dates across the States throughout April and May starting on April 16th. In addition the band will be playing US festivals including Shaky Knees, Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville and more.
