Last Dinosaurs reveal latest single ‘Apollo’ from their hotly anticipated second album ‘Wellness’ to be released August 28, via Dew Process / UMA, plus announce a run of national tour dates which include some of the largest venues the band will headline to date, including all ages and under 18 shows. Last Dinosaurs ‘Wellness’ tour, proudly supported by triple j, kicks off Friday September 25, in the band’s hometown of Brisbane before heading to Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Canberra and Perth.
‘Apollo’ is a shimmering slice of pop with effervescent riffs, sunset solos and a bass line that will drive you straight to the dance floor. Lead singer and guitarist Sean Caskey explains “It’s about the scene in The Matrix when Neo is offered the red pill and the blue pill by Morpheus. The moment in time when someone who’s curious about something more, to take the dive on the edge of uncertainty into an alternative life.”
Last summer, the band took two months of much-needed downtime and headed south to The Grove studios, situated in the sleepy Central Coast of New South Wales to record their latest creative endeavor, ‘Wellness’. They recruited producer Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, The Presets, Empire of the Sun) for the album, and his legendary portfolio brought a wealth of experience to the project. “Scott is a genius. He has the perfect blend of scientist and artist in him. It’s just inspiring watching someone who’s a master at his craft weave his magic on your work”.
Last Dinosaurs have only just wrapped up their sold out national ‘Evie’ tour, which saw the band play to ecstatic fans across the country. Tickets for the ‘Evie’ shows sold out in Sydney and Melbourne in less than 72 hours of going on sale, with Brisbane and Adelaide following suit within a week. The band’s next performance is at Byron Bay’s Splendour In The Grass.
