Hi everyone. Big important things have been happening in Blue Diamond Bandland since we last updated this website... relatively big important things, anyway. As important as global economics? Military coups in the Middle East? Tsunamis and earthquakes and swarms of bees and packs of dogs with bees in their mouths so that when they bark they shoot bees at you?

The answer: Yes.

For one, we're heading into the studio Saturday for several days to record our upcoming debut LP! We haven't named it yet, but it's going to be a split release on ADD and Dead Broke, and it'll be out by Gainesville Fest XI (which we're playing). We're all really excited and I personally am still a little nervous. I think this is the best batch of songs I've ever had, going into a recording, and I'm really happy we get to work in a great studio (Sound Gallery) with our good buddy and engineering maestro Jacques Waite!

And we had a great time playing with Australian legends-five-years-from-now Royal Headache, who are also really sweet dudes. Make sure you check them out, you won't regret it - they have an LP on RIP Society Records which I've spun over and over.

Last but not least, keep an eye out for us if you're in the upper Midwest. We'll be playing in your town soon, I bet... especially in August, for which we're putting together a week-long tour around the Great Lakes region.

Allright, that's all for now. See y'all soon,
