“No Control” – DIAMOND YOUTH releases another track

Baltimore’s DIAMOND YOUTH shared the track “No Control” from their upcoming debut LP Nothing Matters, out May 19th, 2015 on Topshelf Records. “Diamond Youth makes sounds reminiscent of 80s and 90s alt rock like the vein of Dinosaur Jr. and Failure, but their mix of angst and guitar pop doesn’t feel too derivative—or maybe that genre never really goes out of style,” VICE said of the new song. Recorded at Hurley studios at the company’s headquarters in Costa Mesa, California by engineer Dave Warsop, Nothing Matters is the studio’s first full LP to be released and is now available for pre-order via Topshelf Records.

Formed in 2012, the quartet calls Baltimore home, although the members of Diamond Youth are currently spread out across the country. Sharing a common background in art, design, skateboarding and music, the band has previously released three EPs, including the critically acclaimed 2013 EP Orange and 2014 EP Shake, on Topshelf Records. Drawing influence from bands such as Pixies, Queens Of The Stone Age, and The Nerves, Diamond Youth writes infectious, catchy songs that are full of sunny guitar lines, warm reverb and gorgeous harmonies.

This May, the band will embark on a full North America tour with Superheaven and Rozwell Kid. They are also slated to play Asbury Park’s Skate and Surf Festival and Michigan’s Bled Fest (all tour dates below).
