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 came to stay in the studio‘s cottage annex, with sessions, mind expanding forest walks and rock ‘n‘ roll tales around the clock.The band’s and Tomas’ shared love for ‘Mott‘ and ‘The Golden Age‘ has permeated the recordings – which is something you will, obviously, hear when you listen to this stellar album.
Shortly after making their highly acclaimed demo tapes with star producer Max Martin in 1991, Diamond Dogs went into the 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 worldwide cult status.
And today, 30 years after it all started, Diamond Dogs have yet another time returned to inimitable producer Tomas Skogsberg to make their 14th Long-Player.
A Twenty-Four original songs Double Album!
The band comments the album:
Slap Bang Blue Rendezvous is a double-album for full-time dreamers everywhere!
It condenses the hard glam boogie journey this band has been on, through thick and thin since 1991.
Diamond Dogs believes in the restorative power of rock, and whether you wear high-heeled boots or blue suede shoes, this album is for you, a party that is a blast from start to finish.
