DIAMOND HEAD: New Live Album, DVD Samples Available

NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) legends DIAMOND HEAD, one of the most influential British rock bands of the past 25 years, have uploaded audio samples from their newly released live album, "It's Electric", at their official web site.

"It's Electric" (Secret Records) was recorded at London's Astoria theatre on November 4, 2005, and features a mixture of classic tracks and new material. It is the second DIAMOND HEAD album to feature singer Nick Tart, who made his debut on 2005's critically acclaimed album "All Will Be Revealed".

In addition to the live CD, Secret Records will be issuing a DVD, entitled "To the Devil His Due", later in the year containing footage from the Astoria concert. The video for the song "In the Heat of the Night", taken from the forthcoming DVD, can be viewed on the Secret web site.

"It's Electric" is both a celebration of DIAMOND HEAD's heritage and a reaffirmation that the band is very much back in business. As guitarist and founder member Brian Tatler explains, "We've never sounded better live, and a lot of that comes down to having a new singer. Nick has re-energized the band. He's brought a lot of fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm. And the response we've had to the new material has been fantastic."

DIAMOND HEAD are currently writing material for their next album and are planning to be back in the studio before the end of the year.

DIAMOND HEAD's European tour with MEGADETH in early 2005 marked their first outing with Tart and rhythm guitarist Adrian Mills. The band's current lineup is completed by Eddie Moohan (bass) and Karl Wilcox (drums).
