Pluto Records has announced the signing of Philadelphia's SPARK IS A DIAMOND.

Formed in the summer of 2006, the band mixes punk and hardcore, heavy dance beats, and alternating female/male vocals, resulting in a style somewhere between REFUSED and DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979.

Featuring vocalist Alison Bellavance, guitarist/vocalist Matt Boylan, and drummer Joe Crawford, the trio has previously released an EP with Emerald Moon Records.

Commented the band: "We are stoked to work with Brian and Pluto Records. We've been fans of the label for years, and we are really excited to now be a part of that family and great roster of bands."

SPARK IS A DIAMOND has just completed recording its full-length debut, "Try This On For Size", in Baltimore, MD with Paul Leavitt (CIRCA SURVIVE, THE BLED). The CD will be mixed by Matt Bayles (THE BLOOD BROTHERS, MASTODON). A May release is expected.
