Having already been featured as Classic Rock’s track of the week, announced as support for We Are The Ocean and Motion City Soundtrack, and with an average age of 17, Liverpudlian rockers Black Diamond are set to release their eagerly anticipated groove-riff laden debut EP “Stranglehold” on June 1st, 2015.  The EP serves up 4 swaggeringly large rock cuts produced by the legendary Paul Tipler (Idlewild, Placebo) which herald the return of ‘The Great Northern Rock Band’

Jam packed full of heavy riffs, colossal choruses, full-on swagger and epic production, title track ‘Stranglehold’ is huge in every department and is the perfect introduction to the huge vocal talent of Dan Byrne, who like the rest of this Scouserock four-piece are only just out of school.

With blazing rock intros, massive choruses and serious melody Black Diamond are the band that commercial rock promoters dream of, the sort of material that can fill arenas, which is just as well as putting on a spectacular performance live is the true essence of what makes Black Diamond stick out from the rest.  Rock bands – as all true fans of the genre know – can’t fake it, and this band bang it out with an unrivalled mix of heavy precision and passion

So what’s next for Black Diamond? An album is in the pipeline alongside a national tour coming later this year and record label interest sending key execs twitching excitedly at the possibility – at last – of having a northern mainstream rock band that can occupy and own the space last properly frequented in the mid to late nineties.  Of course, production and rocks sounds today are massively heavier than back then, but that inimitable northern rock quality shines through.  In mainstream rock terms, the North is about to rise again…
