POST HARDCORE OUTFIT, DIAMOND WEAPON, SHARE NEW TRACK "THE HOUSE ON 65TH STREET"

Published on 7 June 2021 at 16:30

Packed with chaotic aggression and overwhelming melancholy, Diamond Weapon release a new track titled, "The House on 65th Street". It is the second single from the group's upcoming EP, Eyes out June 11th.

With music reminiscent of The Wonder Years and La Dispute, the track narrates the story of someone who is no longer in love with their partner but goes through the motions of the relationship anyway because they don't want to break their partner's heart. At least, until their partner proposes to them. It tells a gut-wrenching story, much like the full EP that sees the band exploring the darker side of all types of relationships. 

EYES EP OUT JUNE 11TH - PRE-ORDER HERE!

The Eyes EP offers an outlet to help others work through their feelings both positive and negative. Although not always pretty, it’s undeniable that the EP is honest and vulnerable. Lyrically, the songs are straightforward and adventurous. It indulges society's darker aspects at large, personal lives and psyche with topics that range from justice, burdenship, gun violence, romance, and heartbreak. The EP was produced by Eddie Lucciola and Davis Maxwell from 414 Recordings in Fort Erie, Ontario. Consisting of 6 tracks, it's a sonic assault through storytelling.

Do you know that feeling you get deep down in your gut when, despite what everyone else says, you are right about something? When karma finally catches up to a wrongdoer or the realisation that you've finally found peace after a bad breakup with your partner? If so, you may identify with Toronto post-hardcore band DIAMOND WEAPON.

Diamond Weapon is Louis Tentsos, Jason Bradfield, Nick Richards and Marco Vani. They formed the band in late 2016 after finding each other via Kijiji and Craigslist and quickly bonded over their love of punk, post-hardcore and playing music.

Although forming only a few years ago, the band has some notable achievements. In 2017 after releasing their first song demos the band headlined a sold-out show at the Monarch Tavern and opened for Canadian Icon Danko Jones at the Bovine Sex Club during Canadian Music Week. By 2018 they had released their first full-length album “All I Wanted Was The Other Side” and opened for one of their favourite bands, Eyes Set To Kill, on their Canadian tour dates.
