Dinosaur Pile-Up have debuted a brand new video for 'Round The Bend'

Dinosaur Pile-Up have debuted a brand new video.

The animated clip is for 'Round The Bend', taken from last year's 'Celebrity Mansions' album.

Frontman Matt Bigland explains: “‘Round the Bend’ is about being at the very edge of your emotional strength. I wrote it when I was at a breaking point of sorts, where I felt like what I’d been trying to make happen with the band for 12 years wasn’t in fact going to happen. Trying to understand potentially abandoning that dream was both impossible and heartbreaking at the same time. Spoiler alert — little did I know that about six months later what I’d been trying to make happen, did, in fact — amazingly — happen. Cue me crawling out of my dark hole and my tiny mind exploding.”

He added, “Anyway, when I wrote the song and whenever I listened to the demo, I’d imagine this short film playing out in my head. The story was extremely vivid in my mind, and really heartbreaking. Seeing yourself immortalized as a cartoon is always a trip, but the end result of the video had us all bouncing off the walls!”

The video comes ahead of a brand new US tour, which runs through April and May. You can check out the video for 'Round The Bend' below.
