Dinosaur Jr. invite fans to send back 'bad' version of new album
Dinosaur Jr are offering fans the chance to exchange an incorrectly mixed version of recent album 'Farm'.

A message posted on Dinosaurjr.com explains that some versions of the album were mastered too loud, adding that fans can send the album back for a replacement if they wish.

The message reads: "Please note that on the European CD version of the 'Farm' album there is an audio problem. This occurred while duplicating the original master in a duplication studio. The problem occurred when the duplicate was produced, as the software program used for this duplication 'doubled' the sound layers. This resulted in a 3dB increase in the overall sound volume."

They add: "If you have bought a CD of Dinosaur Jr's 'Farm' album in a European shop with the bar code number 5414939004926, and you would like to exchange it with a good version, please go to Media.pias.com/dinosaurjrfarmcd."

The message goes on to offer fans a free ringtone by way of an apology, explaining: "Both PIAS [Recordings] and the band would like to offer the fans something extra for this inconvenience, so in addition to a replacement CD, PIAS will email you a link to download an 'Over It' ringtone once they have received your bad copy."

MEanwhile the band's Lou Barlow is set to release a solo album later this year and play support slots for Dinosaur Jr. when they tour this autumn.
