J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and drummer Murph haven't released a Dinosaur Jr. album since 2016's Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not.

Last week, Barlow shared a text message from their manager Brian Schwartz on Instagram. Schwartz writes in the messages, "it’s fine to start broadcasting the fact that Dino is in the studio making a new LP."

Barlow captioned the picture: "once th[e] snow stops ima get down t[o] Js and get on w/ it."

Since the release of their 2016 album, Dinosaur Jr. went on to host a rock camp this summer, where the band members hosted a series of workshops on songwriting, guitar playing, and more. There was even a night of karaoke, which saw J Mascis cover Tom Petty's Here Comes My Girl".

The Dinosaur Jr. members have also released other projects since their last LP. J Mascis dropped his Elastic Days solo album last year, and Barlow returned with Sebadoh's first album in six years, Act Surprised, in May.

At the moment there's no indication as to when the new Dinosaur Jr. record will arrive.
