47 Diamantes Announce EP Release and National Tour

47 Diamantes Announce EP Release and National Tour

Wednesday 12th January, 2011 4:16PM
Wellington electro-pop-thrash duo 47 Diamantes are releasing their debut EP and hitting the road throughout February in support of it. The group - Gemma Syme (of Diana Rozz) and Kelvin Neal (of Tommy Ill) are notorious for raucous live performances and these three dates will undoubtedly offer up the same party times / nudity / crowd-involvement as previous outings.


The dates:

Auckland, Thursday 27th January @ The Golden Dawn: Tavern of Power w/ special party fun time DJ's Galore
Wellington, Friday 28th January @ Mighty Mighty w/ Leno Lovecraft (LIVE!) and TV Disko (DJ)
Christchurch, Saturday 29th January @ Goodbye Blue Monday w/ TOMMY ILL!! and Teen Fortress (Zach from Bang Bang Eche!)

Press Release:

47 Diamantes (Gemma Syme on vox, Kelvin Neal on music making duties) have been rocking parties for the last year and decided mid 2010 to settle down and make a banging EP. Ditching Kelvin's woeful lo-fi attempts at recording they sought the help of sound man extroardinarre James Goldsmith to help beef out their already beefy mixes. The result is a 6 Track EP designed to be listened to as a whole. Still Friends is just the start of 47 Diamantes recorded output, as they are already well into producing their second EP and will be playing songs from both Still Friends and the newer material (plus some secret mind blowing treats) during the tour.

Known to hold nothing back during live performances, these shows are sure to be the most fun, non pretentious dance filled nights on that particular weekend, if not that entire 7 day calender week.

Even more reason to celebrate is 47 Diamantes are giving out their new single for free TODAY! The song, a reworked version of Armageddon Ready features Tommy Ill on vocals, and Monday will also see the release of a music video for the song, directed by the magnificent Brian Hainsworth! To download this free single head to the 47 Diamantes bandcamp and wrap your ears around this zombie apocalypse homage.
