Influential heavy metal band DIAMOND HEAD have announced plans for a new, self-titled album.
Set for release on March 11th, the release will mark the band’s first studio album since 2007’s What’s In Your Head. It will also be the first to feature vocalist Rasmus Bom Anderson, who joined the band in 2014, following the departure of Nick Tart.
Of the new album, band founder and lead guitarist Brian Tatler said:
“When we began talking with Ras about making a new record, he said we should write the songs as a band just like DIAMOND HEAD did at the beginning of our career. There’s no substitute for writing together in the same room. We spark each other off and create something far bigger than we could have done individually. Ras has certainly renewed the energy within the band. I had no interest in doing another record, but after working with Ras on the European tour, that all 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.”
