UNSIGNED Band of the Month: Diamond City

Diamond City are a four piece alternative band from Abergavenny South Wales.

The line up features:
Guitar/vocals: Joel Mallison
Bass/vocals: Nathan Thomas
Guitar/vocals: Ciaran Griffiths
Drums: Luke powell

They have been playing together for 3 years in the South Wales scene, having toured as far as the Midlands.

The boys take inspiration from punk classics such as Blink 182, Brand New, and Taking Back Sunday. But their music also has hints of Rage Against the Machine, Eminem, and Fleetwood Mac.

Working with producer Romesh Dodangoda, who has also Motorhead, Bring me The Horizon, and Lower than Atlantis among his credits has been the high point of their career so far.

“We all grew up on music he produced and he was an absolute pleasure to work with,” says drummer Luke.

The group say the hardest part of being unsigned is trying to book gigs and encourage people to listen to their stuff.

Their EP Faults is up for pre-order now.
