DIAMOND HEAD will begin their longest North American tour in their 40-year career tomorrow! Expected to include songs that span their extensive recording catalog, the band's set will feature selections from their popular, self-titled new album.

The band has launched a special contest for fans to celebrate the tour. Fans are invited to post their best #AMIEVILFACE selfie on their personal Instagram pages. Simply include @diamond_head_official and the show that you are attending and be automatically entered in to randomly win either an autographed tour poster or a special meet & greet with the band.

Released via Dissonance Productions on June 24, Diamond Head is the first album to feature new vocalist Rasmus Born Anderson and ends an eight-year silence for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal legends.

DIAMOND HEAD are considered one of NWOBHM’s early members. Formed in 1976, their songs influenced a slew of early 80’s thrash metal bands, in particular METALLICA who recorded the band’s “Am I Evil” as a b-side to their 1984 "Creeping Death" single and again included on the band’s multi-platinum 1998 covers album Garage Inc. Tatler joined members of METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX at the 2011 Sonisphere Festival. METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich addressed the crowd saying, “if it wasn’t for Brian Tatler, there’s a pretty good chance none of us would be here tonight.” Later speaking about the event Tatler said, “if it wasn’t for METALLICA, DIAMOND HEAD would not have had this second wind.” METALLICA would record three additional DIAMOND HEAD songs – “Helpless” (Garage Days, 1987), “The Prince” (“One" Single b-side, 1989), “It’s Electric” (Garage Inc., 1998).

Dissonance Productions additionally issued for the the first time in North America the band's 2005 album All Will Be Revealed and the 2007 album What's In Your Head.
