11 JULY 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Today, one of Canada’s top rock talents, Diemonds, announced the release of their upcoming self-titled album (the third in their repetoire) which is set for release on August 10, 2018 via Big Cartel. Their first single “Our Song” will hit the airwaves the same day, coupled with a video directed by Skye Sweetnam (Sumo Cyco). Preview “Our Song” HERE.
Written by the powerfully enigmatic front woman Priya Panda, Diemonds was recorded at Toronto’s Vespa studios, with Eric Ratz (Danko Jones / The Lazys / Monster Truck) taking the production and mixing reigns. Engineered by Ryan Jones (A.N.S. / Star Fucking Hipsters), and mastered by Harry Hess (Lights / The Glorious Sons) – the new album weaves together their raw rock stylings and their eclectic, ear-wormy sounds. Together, it creates a dynamic collection of songs that not only showcase their growth as a band, but also highlights universal themes such as reconciliation, acceptance, forgiveness and survival.
From Toronto, the JUNO nominated Diemonds quickly gained attention with their debut EP “In The Rough” which was released in 2008. Those tunes got them on the road across North America with bands such as Semi Precious Weapons (Justin Tranter’s rock outfit), Teenage Head and L.A. Guns. Since then they’ve released two more internationally acclaimed albums, toured with legends like Megadeth, Slash, and KISS.
“Fierce guitar riffs and glam-rock stage personas — think Mötley Crüe meets Guns N’ Roses, with a feisty five-foot-five woman at the helm“ – The Toronto Star
