The new album Slap Bang Blue Rendezvous is produced and mixed by Tomas Skogsberg, and the songs are all composed, jammed, arranged and recorded in Sunlight Studio, Gräddö, Sweden, mainly during the summer months of 2020. The Sunlight Studio is without a doubt Diamond Dogs‘ true home ground. The group have had countless of collaborations with the inimitable producer throughout the years. During varying periods of time, the band members come and stay in the studio‘s cottage annex, with sessions, mind expanding, forest walks and rock ‘n‘ roll tales around the clock. Their common love for the golden years of ‘Mott‘ makes them inseparable.
SLAP BANG BLUE RENDEZVOUS ALBUM COVER After making highly acclaimed demo tapes with star producer Max Martin (Britney Spears) in 1991, Diamond Dogs shortly thereafter went into legendary Sunlight Studio with producer and mastermind Tomas Skogsberg (Hellacopters / Entombed). The first single ”Blue Eyes Shouldn‘t Be Cryin” from the debut album Honked, launched in 1993, made its way onto rotation on MTV‘s classic hard rock show Headbangers Ball, and it became the start of a successful journey that eventually took the group to world wide cult status. And this time, 30 years after it all started, Diamond Dogs have yet another time returned to inimitable producer Tomas Skogsberg to make their 14th Long-Player.
