NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) legends DIAMOND HEAD, one of the most influential British rock bands of the past 25 years, have posted the following message on their official web site.
"We have had some great gigs recently, and those that haven't managed to see us will soon have the chance of getting the new live album [entitled 'It's Electric' and recorded on November 4, 2005 at the London Astoria]. It comes in a nice card sleeve with a booklet inside featuring lots of great pictures and sleeve notes by Dom Lawson from Kerrang!
"DIAMOND HEAD feature on a new 2-CD Sanctuary Records release that features original tracks that METALLICA have covered over the course of their career. It follows closely the 'Garage Inc.' release from '98 and as such will include the five DIAMOND HEAD tracks. This is released on 26th June, 2006.
"Brian [Tatler, DIAMOND HEAD guitarist] recently spent a day with Dave Mustaine and MEGADETH while they were recording their new album in Berkshire. Pictures can be seen on the Scrapbook page for this.
"DIAMOND HEAD feature on the excellent new www.mpeguk.com website, where you can see the full colour pro shot video for 'Mine All Mine' amongst other things. The site also features a great video special on Joe Satriani. You will need broadband to appreciate it fully."
DIAMOND HEAD are currently writing material for their next album and are planning to be back in the studio before the end of the year.
DIAMOND HEAD's European tour with MEGADETH in early 2005 marked their first outing with singer Nick Tart and rhythm guitarist Adrian Mills. The band's current lineup is completed by Eddie Moohan (bass) and Karl Wilcox (drums).
