Dinosaur Jr recall 'too loud' album and announce KOKO date

Dinosaur Jr, Farm

Story by Jack Foley

DINOSAUR Jr. have been made aware that the European CD version of their new album Farm has an audio problem.

Whilst duplicating the original master, the software program ‘doubled’ the sound layers. This resulted in a 3dB increase in the overall sound volume.

Anyone that has bought a copy of the album with the bar code number 5414939004926, should go to and will be told how to exchange their copy.

The band are ’bummed’ that this happened and are not taking the situation lightly.

Both Dinosaur Jr. and their label PIAS would like to offer their fans something extra for this inconvenience, so in addition to a replacement CD, fans can download a free ringtone of the single Over It.

A valid email address is required to receive the ringtone. Postage will also be covered to make this exchange easier.

On a brighter note, the band have just announced a date at London’s Koko on September 25 – their full UK tour details are :

19 – Oxford Academy
20 – Cambridge Junction
21 – Brighton Concorde 2

3 – Sheffield Leadmill
5 – Anson Rooms @ Bristol University
25 – London Koko

Tickets are £16, shows are 14+ and doors are 7pm, except for London where tickets are £17.50, doors open at 6.30pm and the band go onstage at 8.30pm.
