Diamond Head New Album Releases In June

Iconic heavy metal band DIAMOND HEAD today confirms June 3 as the North American release date for their new, self-titled album. Recorded at Vigo Studios in Birmingham, the album is the first to feature new vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersen and ends an eight-year silence for the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) legends. Direct pre-orders for the album will launch shortly.

Prior to 2014, the thought of a new album was bleak. Guitarist and band founder Brian Tatler reveals, “I had no interest in doing another record but after working with Ras on the 2014 European tour that suddenly changed. I wanted to make a record with him. He’s a confident singer and he’s not trying to fill anyone’s shoes.” Recording of the album commenced last July with the band and engineer Adam Beddow at the helm. Tatler notes, “I gave Rasmus some music to listen to last January. He selected songs or riffs that he wanted to work on and we began rehearsing. We whittled things down to fourteen songs by April.” Eleven songs were selected in the end for the album; all mixed by Dave Nicholls and mastered by John Davis at London’s Metropolis.

The album’s North American release follows a late April European release as the band kicks off a healthy series of live performances to support the album. Dates are already confirmed through September including Sweden Rock on June 8. The band most recently appeared as a performer for the 6th edition of 7000 Tons Of Metal. The band has toured North America twice; first in 2011 including Toronto’s Heavy TO Festival and Montreal’s Heavy MTL Fest, and again in 2013.
