The saga of alt icons Dinosaur Jr. will be told in the forthcoming rockumentary, “Freakscene – The Story Of Dinosaur Jr”. A trailer for the film, set to arrive in North America this fall, is available now on YouTube.

Frontman J Mascis immediately sets the tone for the film as he opens the trailer by saying, “I don’t know where people got this idea that it’s supposed to be fun or something to play music. It never occurred to us that it’s supposed to be fun. Music was really important and we wanted to do it.”

Directed by Philipp Reichenheim, the trailer for Freakscene immediately dispels any perception of a fawning documentary. It appears to go beyond “warts and all” to a state of “Dinosaur Jr.: just warts.” Mascis along with his bandmates Lou Barlow and Murph candidly open up about their internal struggles as a band as they navigated unlikely success in the 90s through line-up changes, breakups, reunions, and more. The film features behind-the-scenes footage from archival performances as well as new interviews with the band and Kim GordonHenry RollinsBob MouldThurston Moore, and more.

Freakscene – The Story Of Dinosaur Jr. made its debut earlier this summer at the band’s Camp Fuzz and is currently making the rounds in Europe. Watch the trailer and follow the band’s social media accounts for screening information. Dinosaur Jr. postponed the first leg of its North American tour due to COVID, meanwhile, Barlow is set to begin his Septober tour. It’s an emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy rollercoaster ride by a dysfunctional family, Dinosaur Jr. Featuring J Mascis, Lou Barlow, Murph, Kim Gordon, Henry Rollins, Bob Mould, Thurston Moore.
