J Mascis will return to Australia in March, touring his new album "Elastic Days".

The frontman for Dinosaur Jr. has just released Elastic Days, his third solo studio album for legendary indie label Sub Pop. Its his first solo release since Tied To A Star in 2014.

Mascis played all the instruments on the album which also features guest appearances from Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession) and Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion) and Zoe Randell of Aussies Luluc.
The video for the albums title track, Elastic Days, features the tragic comedy of cabaret comedian Dina Martina. Says J of the video “I’ve been a big Dina Martina fan for a long time. I’ve seen her perform many times over the years. I’m glad that I got her to do this video before she becomes an untouchable superstar. I am amazed at how the video came out, I’m so psyched.”

On tour Mascis plays an acoustic guitar plugged into an amp with his usual mind boggling array of pedals and effects. It’s still loud.

J Mascis tours Australia this March playing Adelaide Festival, The Farmer & The Owl Festival, Brunswick Music Festival and a whole bunch of headline dates. Tickets on sale tomorrow: November 28th

It's J Mascis live. What more do you need to know?
