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.

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.
