Today, we're bringing you something pretty sweet that involves arguably one of the best up-and-coming alt-rock bands around. Diamond, the group that includes members of Trapped Under Ice and Down to Nothing, is officially changing their name to Diamond Youth. To coincide with that announcement, we're bringing you an exclusive interview with the band that talks about said change as well as their upcoming recording with Brian McTernan. Be sure to read up, and if you haven't already picked up their stellar EP Don't Lose Your Cool, get it on vinyl here.
Watch Diamond perform "The Feeling" acoustically in the replies. The band's EP, Don't Lose Your Cool, is now available on cassette from Lost Tape Collective. You can still stream it on their AP.net profile.
Thanks to the wonders of the internet, members of Trapped Under Ice, Terror and Down to Nothing were able to come together to form Diamond. Unlike the blistering hardcore of its members' other projects, Diamond plays '90s-style alternative rock a la Weezer and Jimmy Eat World. The band's debut EP, Don't Lose Your Cool, was self-released last year, and today it makes its debut on vinyl via Black Numbers. You can stream the album on their AP.net profile. If you like what you hear, download it for free here and pick up a copy of the record here.
My Brightest Diamond, aka Shara Worden, will be releasing an iTunes exclusive EP on December 5th. The EP will have four different versions of the song "Disappear," off of her debut album Bring Me The Work Horse, as well as an unreleased b-side.
My Brightest Diamond will be going on tour soon with DeVotchKa.
