DIAMOND HEAD are set to return to North American for their longest tour in their 40-year career. The headline run will feature songs that span their extensive recording catalog including their self-titled new album set for North American release on June 24.
Diamond Head is the first album toe feature new vocalist Rasmus Born Anderson and ends an eight-year silence for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) legends.
The album’s June 24 North American release follows the recent European release. “Not only is this a new beginning, but it’s their best work since their first two official albums,” declares Record Collector’s Mark Taylor. “Filled with chugging riffs, high flying solos and bombastic hooks, it just rocks in glorious timeless fashion,” adds Classic Rock. Tatler says, “the album’s energy and excitement are perfect. It echoes our early albums but as always pushes forward.”
In addition to the new album, Dissonance Productions will issue for the first time in North America the band’s 2005 album All Will Be Revealed and 2007 album What’s In Your Head. Both will be released on July 1. Pre-orders are now available here.
