Dinosaur Bones gears up for u.s. debut

Royalty/Ice Hotels 7-inch vinyl out February 2

"In little less than a year Dinosaur Bones have bridled guitar and key indie rock to a remarkable maturity that is at once captivating and unsettling."
– Fazer Magazine

New York, NY – After spending the large part of the past year recording and performing at radio shows, underground parties and some of Canada's biggest festivals such as Edgefest, NXNE, Pop Montreal and Halifax Pop Explosion, Toronto's DINOSAUR BONES is ready to storm the US of A! After kicking off their Winter tour January 8 in Ontario, the indie rockers are preparing to make their way to the U.S., playing shows throughout the east coast, including stops in NYC and DC and finishing off with a bang at Austin's SXSW. DINOSAUR BONES' Royalty/Ice Hotels 7-inch will be available February 2 on Hi-Scores Recordings.

Dropping out of college to pursue his rock and roll dreams, lead singer Ben Fox collaborated with old friends and new friends to create the brooding sound and style of Dinosaur Bones.  With Ben Fox on vocals, Branko Scekic on bass, Dave Wickland on keys, Lucas Fredette on drums, and Joel Clifton on guitar, the Canadian group transformed their unpolished music into a sound filled with haunting synth layers, powerful rhythm, and contemplative lyrics. Playing alongside artists like Crystal Antlers, Malajube, Hey Rosetta!, Arkells, Born Ruffians, and more, Dinosaur Bones quickly impressed audiences by their melancholic, yet ambitious show. After gaining praise and attention from Canada's top media outlets, including Toronto's 102.1 The Edge, the group collaborated with producer Jon Drew (Tokyo Police Club, Arkells, Fucked Up) and Giant Studios to record their debut full-length. Preceding their full-length, Dinosaur Bones will be releasing a two-track 7-inch on February 2, featuring crowd favorites "Royalty" and "Ice Hotels".
