DIEMONDS - Diemonds calls downtown Toronto their home, but they live for criss-crossing the continent for weeks on end, armed with little more than their brand of original hard rock, their gear, and a dream. With their 2nd full length album ‘Never Wanna Die’ released worldwide in 2015, the band continued to modernize their heavy rock n' roll sound and picked up a Juno nomination for Heavy Metal Album of The Year. Remaining true to their sound, Diemonds takes lyrics that speak to the outcasts, wild childs, and misfits, and combines them with a hard-hitting live show, taking cues from the greats they look up to.
