Western USA Tour Dates Are Up!

Yes! It's the moment we've all been waiting for... dates and venues for our Western USA tour are now up and posted on the right hand side of this page! Check 'em out!

You'll notice that we only posted the dates, cities, and venues. More info will be posted as we get it, but this far out, some things are still up in the air. But if you just can't wait, and you need any more info on the shows? Email, I'll do what I can for ya.

If you play in a band and you live in one of these cities, and you're interested in playing any of these dates, please get in touch with us. Not every bill is completely full! (Some are.) Email, or just find us in one of the many other ways which that can be done.

And as you are probably aware, we are playing Awesome Fest 8 this year. Still don't know if that'll be Friday or Sunday, but as soon as we know, you'll know.

See ya soon, Western USA! (And even Tijuana, Mexico! So cool.)

Home From Tour - Here's What's Up...

Hello, citizens of the rock'n'roll universe. Nato here, letting you know that we had a fantastic time out there on the road, travelling all around the eastern USA! And now we've been home for about a week, and we're just chillin' out, playing the odd record store show with a Modern Machines semi-reunion set thrown in for good measure, playing with Collective Soul in Mankato... you know, the usual.

We're headed out again on August 15th, for three weeks, to the west coast and back. We're playing Awesome Fest 8 this year (check the image on the upper right corner of this page), and the tour is built around that. We'll be going to a few new cities this time around, as well as some favorites of ours. I'll be posting the tour dates by the end of the week; for now, let me just say that the route outline (route-line?) is Kansas City through Colorado, across up to Seattle, down to San Diego, across to Texas, and north to home. With lots of shows in between all those locations, of course!

The second pressing of Promises To Deliver remains available - we can't sell 500 records THAT fast, we ain't THAT good - so if you're looking for it, check out the Dead Broke or the ADD website, or just come out to one of our shows and we'll sell ya one.

And for the future? This fall, look for the Blue Diamond Band in all the usual regional hellholes we love so well. We'll also be playing Gainesville Fest 13, and also playing a pre-Fest show in Gainesville the Thursday night before Fest officially begins (Halloween!). Perhaps a small tour right around then would suit us. We're also gonna have to make a second album sometime, eh? We should get going on that... busy days, my friends, busy days.
