Universal Records will release a triple CD from DIAMOND HEAD this spring. It will contain remastered versions of "Borrowed Time" (1982), "Canterbury" (1983) and "Live at the Reading Festival". The release will also include some bonus material, some of which has previously been unavailable. This is also the first release of "Borrowed Time" and "Canterbury" on CD in the U.K. The "Reading" set was previously released on Raw Fruit in 1992, but has long since been deleted and is a much sought-after item by DIAMOND HEAD fans.

"Skin on Skin", the latest video from DIAMOND HEAD, can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's new album, "What's In Your Head?", which was released on July 30 2007. The CD was previously described by the band as "a powerful but varied collection of songs." The album includes the song "Reign Supreme", which is said to be "the heaviest track DIAMOND HEAD have recorded since 'Am I Evil?'"
