Hi, y'all, it's been a couple months since the last update here. So, let me get some news items atcha!
First off, the band will be laying low for a couple weeks while Mike and Bill's other band - The Chinchees - hit the road for a two-week west coast tour! You really should check them out, click here to visit their bandcamp and rock the heck out! They're out from March 17th through April 2nd so keep your eyes and hearts open, Western USA (and Texas, too)... you can see some mostly-correct tour dates (and a cool video! It's really cool!) at this link.
Meanwhile, the Blue Diamond Band itself will be entering the studio in April and recording our second studio album. Very exciting stuff, people! There will be more news as it is warranted, but it's gonna happen, folks. Get ready - there is no release date set, but when the record is recorded we'll have more info for ya!
Rum Bar Records is having a Storm Sale, out there in Boston (where I think they technically avoided much snow... but hey, they have devotees who live inland too!) - check out their facebook page, everything is 25% off! And meanwhile, look, our live album made Pop Geek Heaven's Best Of 2016 list! Check it out!
And of course, we have shows... currently nothing too far from home, but this spring and summer we will be hitting the road for weekends here and there. I know that's not really "news" considering the fact that announcing that the Blue Diamond Band is careening around the Midwest is about as stunning as announcing that the sky is blue or the grass is green or that beer is good for you, but I'm still saying it!
Last: THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME TO OUR GRUMPY'S RESIDENCY! WE LOVE YOU, YOU BEAUTIFUL SO AND SO'S!
