DIAMOND HEAD continue to promote their 2016 self-titled album with live dates and a brand new video. The video for "Diamonds" can be seen on KNAC.COM right HERE.

""Diamonds" is a song that pays homage to the legacy of the band," says vocalist Rasmus Andersen. "It features vintage and modern performance footage from DIAMOND HEAD's career. It reflects on the band's 40 years and gives lyrical nods that point to some of DIAMOND HEAD's best songs."

The video, created by Emmy Award nominee Roman at Snakejam Studios, precedes the band's upcoming return to the United States for the first of two short runs that include performances at Rocklahoma Festival on May 27th and Psycho Las Vegas in Las Vegas on August 19.

"We are really looking forward to Rocklahoma which will be our largest US festival to date," notes Andersen. "We hope to see and meet loads of fans on our shows between the 17th and 27th of May. We will be playing songs from our new album and classic catalogue along with one or two surprises for the hard core fans.”

Released via Dissonance Productions last June, Diamond Head is the first album to feature Andersen on vocals. Its release ended an eight-year silence for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal icons.

Formed in 1976, DIAMOND HEAD influenced a slew of early 80’s thrash metal bands, in particular METALLICA who recorded the band’s “Am I Evil” as a b-side to their 1984 "Creeping Death" single and again included on the band’s multi-platinum 1998 covers album Garage Inc. METALLICA would record three additional DIAMOND HEAD songs – “Helpless” (Garage Days, 1987), “The Prince” ("One" Single b-side, 1989), “It’s Electric” (Garage Inc., 1998).

Dissonance Productions additionally issued the band's 2005 album All Will Be Revealed and the 2007 album What's In Your Head.

  • 5/17 - Ace of Cups, Columbus OH
