Diamond Youth // Debut LP "Nothing Matters" pre-orders & song premiere

Pre-orders for the new LP Nothing Matters are up now! — and you can have a listen to a new song "Thought I Had It Right" over on BrooklynVegan.

Also, the band will be on tour with Superheaven and Rozwell Kid later this spring.

Thanks!

First ever Topshelf Records tour!!

When we started this label we never imagined that we'd be one day announcing our own "label" tour. At the end of the day, it's just a tour (albeit a really good one), but yeah, it feels nice to say. With that said, we're excited to announce our ~first ever~ Topshelf Records tour featuring A Great Big Pile of LeavesDiamond YouthPrawn & Field Mouse. Dates and info are below:

Also, we're teaming up with A to Z Media to offer attendees a free exclusive 7" record that'll have a track from each band on the tour. We've also partnered with New Noise Magazine to offer a bunch of free giveaways (keep your eyes peeled for those coming soon). Tickets are on sale now!

Thanks for the support and see you at the shows!!

Diamond Youth // east coast tour / new music video / "Shake" pre-order

This past spring the guys in Diamond Youth told us that they wanted to "record a couple songs that are totally random and might not make sense entirely" or something to that effect, so we agreed to get involved. What came out of two weeks with producer Brian McTernan at Salad Days studio in Maryland was Shake — a foot tapping and head bobbing punk rock EP that we're damn happy to be releasing on February 4th, 2014. Pre-orders for the EP are up now for vinyl, CD and digitally.

To coincide with pre-orders, we've also got the premiere of a new video for "Can't Shake the Feeling" which you can view directly below:

Fresh off their full US tour with Polar Bear Club, Citizen and Sainthood Reps last month the band have also announced an east coast tour for February 2014 w/ TurnstileTurnoverANGEL DU$T, and Blind Justice. These'll be record release shows for the new EP, Shake. Dates and info below:

  • 2/5 Newport News, VA @ Meko's Skatepark
  • 2/6 Atlanta, GA @ MJQ
  • 2/7 Pensacola, FL @ The Handlebar
  • 2/8 Tampa, FL @ Epic Problem

Cannonball!

In the US, Labor Day weekend basically is the first sign that summer is on its way out — everything starts getting pumpkin this and apple that. We wanna send it off with one last hurrah. If the 85-degree forecast for Boston's weekend is any indicator, I think it's safe to say we'll all be in a body of water this Labor Day weekend. 

We're trying to make a new video for Diamond Youth's "Cannonball" and you can be in it by simply finding the nearest cliff, ledge, deck, diving board, garage roof, or whatever else you can find and film you and some friends jumping — cannonballing — into some water, posting it on instagram and tagging it #DYcannonball. We'll use every video that gets posted for the music video (make sure your account is set to public or we won't be able to see it!).

PS: If you entered our free Diamond Youth sticker giveaway contest, the last batch of #paintthetownorange stickers went out and you've got a couple weeks to keep posting — we'll pick winners in mid-September for that.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
