Dinosaur Jr. invite fans to send back 'bad' version of new album Get Tickets

Some versions of 'Farm' were mixed incorrectly

Dinosaur Jr's rendition of 'Just Like Heaven' was a particular favourite of Robert Smith's, and makes the cut on his insistence (although we love it too).

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.
