Leeds trio Dinosaur Pile-Up have just unveiled a cover of Run DMC‘s 1987 hit single, ‘It’s Tricky’, exclusively through Amazon Music.
This is what frontman Matt Bigland had to say about the choice of cover.
“We chose ‘It’s Tricky’ because it’s one of my all-time favuorite songs, I just love it and it gets me pumped. We were actually on a drive during a US tour listening to music on the stereo in the van, and we’d been trying to think of which song we should cover – and then ‘It’s Tricky’ came on and Mike turned to me and I turned to Mike and we were both like – WE COULD DO TRICKY!!! And the decision was instantly made. We were stoked on how much fun we could have with it and how heavy we could make it! When we recorded it we basically just had a blast and tried to make it as much fun as possible to record – and I think you can hear that in the track. I hope fans get pumped on it – and slam it on the stereo and party.”

The band’s fourth album, ‘Celebrity Mansions’, is out now through Parlophone Records.
