Dinosaur Bones formed in late 2007 and began performing in early 2008. They recorded and independently released a self-titled EP in May 2008 and began touring locally. The four-song effort was enough to garner two XM Verge Music Award nominations, for Album of the Year and Artist of the Year. In October 2010, Dinosaur Bones signed an international record deal with Canadian independent record label Dine Alone Records (City & Colour, Tokyo Police Club, Alexisonfire). Their Birthright EP, released a month later, marked the band’s first release on Dine Alone Records. And on March 8, 2010, the band released their first full-length album, My Divider. The album was met with consistently-strong reviews, including Montreal’s Hour magazine proclaiming: “These 11 tracks are emotional and gripping, and show the band as a tight, whole artistic unit with a signature sound. ” Both the Birthright EP and My Divider were produced by Jon Drew, whose production credits include Arkells, Tokyo Police Club, and Fucked Up.
