Dinosaur Jr. Inks With Fat Possum For Reunion CD

Reunited alt-rock trio Dinosaur Jr. has signed with Fat Possum, which will release the band's first album with its original lineup since 1989. The 11-track "Beyond" is due May 1; it was recorded at vocalist/guitarist J. Mascis' home studio in Amherst, Mass.

"Dinosaur is something where the sound just propels us," bassist Lou Barlow told Billboard.com in October. "It's an energy source unto itself. The minute we started playing together, it was like, 'Oh, there it is.' It didn't surprise me though, since I've always believed in the quality of J.'s material."

As previously reported, a live DVD will follow later in May. Directed by Mascis' brother-in-law, Phillip Virus, the release will include live performance footage from the first half of Dinosaur Jr.'s reunion tour, including shows in New York and Boston. In February, Nike will also make available a limited edition Dinosaur Jr. skate shoe.

Barlow recently committed to a spring reunion tour with his post Dinosaur Jr.-band, Sebadoh, but according to a spokesperson, there will be additional Dinosaur Jr. live shows this year.

Here is the track list for 'Beyond': Collapse )
