Old hands, new records

Henry Rollins is not a man to argue with, so when he says the forthcoming Dinosaur Jr album Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not - their eleventh - is "like every other Dinosaur Jr record, it's fantastic", we'd be well advised to believe him. Incidentally, I want a record basement like his...

Another legendary outfit set to release a new album this year are Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, whose as-yet untitled LP is due for release on 9th September - with a film featuring footage of the band performing the new material scheduled to premiere the day before. The record will be their first since 2013's Push The Sky Away and since Cave's son Arthur died in tragic circumstances last year - so it's a fairly safe bet it'll be a dark and difficult listen.
