Dinosaur Pile-Up are back at it again with their new track ‘Back Foot’, the second single taken from their forthcoming album Celebrity Mansions, released on June 7th via Parlophone Records.
Its music video counterpart depicts the everyday reality of the quest for fame and makes comedic jabs at the 9-5, nagging parents, run-ins with the police and dreary daytime TV. Check it out for yourself below:
The song premiered last night on the Radio 1 Rock Show as Dan P Carter’s ‘Rockest Record’. ‘Back Foot’ follows up from their previous single ‘Thrash Metal Cassette’ and gives fans a taste of what’s to come from their fourth LP installment.
Speaking about their upcoming record, frontman Matt says, “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.’”
Fans can see the latest hits from Celebrity Mansions live at Download Festival before Dinosaur Pile-Up embark on a huge tour across the US with Shinedown throughout June and July.
