“Risking their safety and sanity for rock n’ roll please welcome Toronto’s wild and young…” – Classic Rock Magazine
Diemonds calls downtown Toronto their home, but they live for criss-crossing the continent for weeks on end, armed with little more than their brand of original hard rock, their gear and a dream. With their 3rd album ‘Never Wanna Die’ slated for release on August 14th, 2015, the band continues to modernize their heavy rock n' roll sound. This time, multiple Juno award-winner Eric Ratz (Monster Truck, Billy Talent) is in the producer chair. Remaining true to their sound, Diemonds takes lyrics that speak to the outcasts, wild childs, and misfits, and combines them with a hard-hitting live show, taking cues from the greats they look up to.
Priya Panda , the band’s front woman, is the sultry singer that the music world has never been so poised for. Every time she steps on stage she walks the indeterminable fine line between class and crass. With her larger-than-life presence, she breaks every cultural, social, gender and sexual boundary known to hard rock. If the ever growing legions of the band's loyal following, known as "Die-Hards", are any indication, Priya and the rest of her bandmates are firmly carving their own path in music and hoards of rock fans are already along for the ride.
Diemonds' previous full-length effort, “The Bad Pack”, was released October 2012 and has taken them on countless North American tours in support of it. Diemonds are known for their relentless touring schedule and their "leave everything on the stage" live show attitude. Notable tour stops at festivals include Heavy MTL, SXSW, NXNE, Vans Warped Tour, Rocklahoma, Seattle Hempfest and most recently The KISS Kruise w/ KISS & Cheap Trick. Additionally, there has been no shortage of support slots for legends like Slash, Steel Panther, Sebastian Bach, & many more!
