little under a year since their formation, leeds based trio dinosaur pile-up can already boast a list of achievements, a list as long as their sound is mighty. with an nme radar piece already under their belts, 2009 began with the release of their debut limited edition single 'my rock n roll' in january. quickly selling out, the song enjoyed massive support from zane lowe, huw stephens and steve lamacq amongst others and quickly introduced the band to other markets including germany, where, following a performance at eurosonic in holland, the band headlined the first club nme in berlin. the band also made friends in france where they toured as part of the prestigious les inrocks national tour in april. 'my rock 'n' roll' was followed by the equally limited edition release of 'traynor', in april, a song that affirmed their riff-driven roots and won them footing with kerrang, kerrang radio and rock sound, and glowing reviews of the band followed.
after selling out their first london show at camden barfly, their second london appearance came in the shape of a headline slot at club nme at koko. second london show proper at hoxton bar and kitchen sold out in march. now, with summer upon us, dinosaur pile-up are poised to enter phase 2! the band returned to the studio with leeds based knob twiddler james kenosha (pulled apart by horses, grammatics) in may, to record the songs that would make up their debut 5 track cdep, the modestly titled 'the most powerful ep in the universe'.
