With a rigorous background in art, design and skateboarding, the boys of Diamond Youth are known for their ability to create and produce all of their own artwork, merchandise, web sites and videos. Claiming Baltimore as their home, members of Diamond Youth are spread across Chicago as well, creating an obstacle in terms of actually practicing as a band.

Despite the varying musical tastes of each member in Diamond Youth, they all share a very common back catalogue of bands who have inspired and defined their developing years as budding artists. From Weezer to Foo FightersQueens of the Stone Age, and all the way back to the Beach Boys, the influence these bands had on Diamond Youth is ever-apparent in the music they write.

On the new track, guitarist Sam Trapkin says, “‘Cannonball’ is our favorite song we’ve ever written. Actually, I don’t know if that’s true. But it’s definitely one of mine.”
