DIAMOND HEAD Finalizing New Album Artwork, Planning Video Shoot

Guitarist Brian Tatler of the NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) legends DIAMOND HEAD has issued the following update:

"As you are no doubt aware by now, [the new DIAMOND HEAD album] 'What's In Your Head?' is now musically complete. What started out as home demos on one side of the globe and some well meaty guitar riffs in good old Blighty is now a fully grown monster which we can stand up and say we are very very proud of. Although the journey to your CD players and mp3 players now takes a slightly less musical path with artwork being the buzz word at DH HQ. It is still a work in progress and as soon as we are sure that every other aspect of the project is up to the standard of the songs we will release it on you lot! The pre-production of the vid is well underway and I can reveal that 'This Planet and Me' will be the tune that gets immortalized on film!! Dates are being added all the time which we are all really excited about. It's been too long boys and girls, but when you hear 'What's In Your Head?' you'll understand! 'Nuff said."

"What's In Your Head?" was previously described by the band as "a powerful but varied collection of songs." Other songtitles set to appear on the album include "Nothing to Lose" ("an hypnotic track with great lyrics from [singer] Nick Tart"), and the "Reign Supreme" ("the heaviest track DIAMOND HEAD have recorded since 'Am I Evil?'").

Dave Nicholls is the recording engineer and producer with guitarist Brian Tatler. Dave recently recorded the SLIPKNOT live album, and has also worked with THE WILDHEARTS. He has been on tour with STONE SOUR during the last few months.

Commented the band: "Brian and Nick have spent months writing these songs and all you fans will be thrilled with the results. We believe this will be the album DIAMOND HEAD have always threatened to make. What 'All Will Be Revealed' promises, 'What's In Your Head?' delivers — and then some!"
