Dinosaur Jr. lines up roadwork, readies new album
Following a handful of summer festival stops, alt-rockers Dinosaur Jr. will take on fall club dates in support of the forthcoming "I Bet On Sky."
The Massachusetts-based outfit will first complete a few festival appearances, including a June 23 gig at Chicago's Green Music Festival and an Aug. 25 show at LouFest in St. Louis.
The official fall trek gets underway with a three-night stand Sept. 24-26 in Toronto, and then canvases the U.S., beginning Sept. 27 in Detroit. The 27-city stretch wraps up Oct. 27 in Philadelphia.
Presale tickets for the fall outing will be available Tuesday (6/19) via the band's website.
Dinosaur Jr. will unveil "I Bet On Sky" Sept. 18 via Jagjaguwar. The effort marks the group's third release since the original trio--J. Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph--reformed in 2005, and the 10th effort of the band's history. The 10-track set follows 2009's "Farm," which debuted at No. 29 on The Billboard 200.
