"It's an exciting time for the band," says frontman Matt Bigland of UK indie rock band Dinosaur Pile-Up on their support slot on the upcoming tour with alt-rock heroes Brand New. "It's an honour to be asked to tour with them." Following previous tours with Pixies, Cage the Elephant, Middle Class Rut among others, this upcoming tour is not just a great musical pairing and their biggest tour yet, but one of camaraderie as well. "We played a couple of shows in UK with them and there was a lot of mutual love flying about," he laughs.

Following the transatlantic success of their latest album Nature Nurture(So Recordings), the band is embarking Stateside in support of the album and to win over even more US fans.

The new single "Derail" is perfectly poised to erupt on the US market. Almost winsome in parts but manically dynamic in the chorus, it posits them right in the foreground of the alt-rock realm, mixing in equal parts of Colour and Shape, Feeder, and even Pinkerton-era Weezer.

After their run of US dates in July with Brand New, Dinosaur Pile-Up will be "touring Japan and playing Summer Sonic festival this summer plus a load of UK festivals and a European run in fall," he explains. "It's an exciting time for the band," he reiterates. For Dinosaur Pile-Up, it is… definitely.
