NEWS: DIAMOND RINGS ANNOUNCES CANADIAN TOUR


DATES ACROSS CANADA IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER

SOPHOMORE ALBUM FREE DIMENSIONAL

OUT OCTOBER 22nd

Set to release his sophomore album, Free Dimensional, via Secret City on October 22nd, Diamond Rings (a.k.a John O) has just announced a full Canadian tour in support of the record.  Diamond Rings is currently on the road supporting Stars in the US, after kicking off the tour together last night at Pop Montreal.  The bands have engaged in a remix swap as a way to ignite their tour together, both of which premiered earlier this week on RCRDLBL. As previously announced, Diamond Rings will be appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman on October 26th as his US headlining dates get underway, before returning to Canada in November (full list of dates below).

As evidenced by the reviews of his intimate showcase in Toronto last month, his upcoming tour is sure to not disappoint. Armed with a collection of 10 new songs, and now backed by a full band (including Graham Van Pelt—aka Secret City label-mate Miracle Fortress), Diamond Rings is more than ready to road-test Free Dimensional. The new tracks retain the melodicism, clever juxtapositions, and lyrical honesty that garnered kudos for his 2010 debut effort Special Affections, while taking the production and technical side of things to the next level. "I wanted the first album to have that homespun quality," John O explains. "Once I became more comfortable with the medium of electronic music, it was only natural to want to improve."

The unique melodies and heartfelt lyrics Special Affections, received widespread critical praise from not only Pitchfork but also The New York Times and NME. This praise was topped off with head-turning performances at SXSW and CMJ as well as international tours with pop princess Robyn, dazzling new-waver, Twin Shadow and fellow Canadians, Junior Boys and PS I Love You.
