Australian Indie-Rock Trio LAST DINOSAURS Announce Lollapalooza Appearance + Share New Song + Video “Look Back”
March 25, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Today, Brisbane indie-rock trio Last Dinosaurs share the bittersweet new single “Look Back,” which examines “the sorrow of flying away from your lover,” says vocalist/guitarist Lachlan Caskey. Spacey synths and somber acoustics open to a soaring chorus. Waiting around feeling the days get longer, losing our minds doing the same old patterns, when I get out I’m coming straight there for you, croons Caskey, who was stranded out of Australia for an extended period during the pandemic lockdowns. Listen to “Look Back” now on all digital retailers (here).
The accompanying music video was directed by Jeoffrey Cheung and Dontae Carter. Lachlan is all alone trapped in a SIMs-like dreamworld of changing spaces, waiting to get out. The isolation is palpable as he wanders back and forth strumming on his guitar.
“Look Back” follows the band’s sizzling return with the anthemic “Collect Call” and surely signals to fans and followers there will be more to come. Last Dinosaurs are also pleased to announce their appearance at Lollapalooza Music Festival at the historic Grant Park in Chicago, IL. Check out the complete list of tour dates below!

Australian indie-rock band Last Dinosaurs burst on to the scene after the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘In A Million Years’ that debuted at #8 on the Australian ARIA chart. The success of the album had them selling out shows across Australia as well as huge headlining tours and festival plays across the UK and Europe, SE Asia and South Africa.
The band continued to win hearts in 2015 with ‘Wellness’ and then again with the much-heralded third album, ‘Yumeno Garden’. The first two singles “Dominos” and “Eleven” went straight to high rotation on Triple J, while the album tour sold out multiple venues in each city across Australia.
In December 2018, Last Dinosaurs announced their first ever U.S. tour. After selling out dates in Chicago and Los Angeles in under a minute, the tour quickly expanded into 17 sold-out shows around the country. Last Dinosaurs went on to do two more sold-out tours of the U.S. and Canada including a 21-date headline tour playing bigger and more iconic venues such as Webster Hall, Fonda Theatre, and The Fillmore. Soon after, the UK & EU came calling as the band sold-out a European tour through Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, and two nights in London. To cap it all off, they followed with a hugely successful run through Southeast Asia.
Last Dinosaurs have also supported international acts such as Foals, Matt & Kim, Lost Valentinos, and Foster the People, playing festivals including Splendour In The Grass, Laneway, Falls Festival and Field Day to name a few.
After the emergence of the pandemic and under the constraints of COVID lockdowns, the band retreated to studios in Mexico and Australia, to write and record new music.
