Dinosaur Jr. share the first video FROM their new record, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, out August 5th on Jagjaguwar. It’s for the electrifying single ‘Tiny’, (which they recently crushed on Later…with Jools Holland), and features J’s buddy/bulldog Beefy. It even features a nod to Dinosaur Jr.’s roots as J and Beefy shred some gnar. Acclaimed filmmaker Laurie Collyer (Sherrybaby, Sunlight Jr.) directed the video and gave the following statement:

“Having come of age in the so-called grunge era I was always about not selling out, not buying in, staying true to my identity and living low. Being a freak in a freakscene was where I found home. This meant listening to the music of the moment at maximum volume – Dinosaur Jr. being in heavy rotation on the turntables of me and my people.


“I got to know J Mascis in 2012 when we hired him to compose the score for my film, Sunlight Jr., a love story set among the ruins of the American dream starring Matt Dillon and Naomi Watts. J is nothing short of a creative genius. In the years since our work on this film, I got to know J as a friend. And what I learned is that, aside from music, J Mascis has other passions. Bulldogs and skateboarding among them. When a friend of mine told me there was such a thing as skateboarding bulldogs, I took it from there and came up with the idea for Tiny.

“J’s dog, sleeping outside his rehearsal room dreams up the perfect day with J. He wants to skate without falling down or crashing. He wants to skate with J. He waits patiently outside the roller derby for J to finish his gig. The rest is history. Enjoy Tiny!”

Over the course of 2016, J, Lou, and Murph are doing what they do best: hitting the road, cranking the amps to 12, making their strings and drumheads glow red like embers. Don’t miss seeing one of the greatest live bands of all-time.
