DIAMOND RINGS ANNOUNCES TOUR DATES AS SPECIAL GUESTS OF O.M.D + EXCLUSIVE SXSW LIVE DATES

(New York, NY – March 5th, 2013 – Diamond Rings is proud to announce an extensive spring  and summer U.S. tour as special guests of British New Wave pioneers, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (O.M.D), as well as exclusive live dates at SXSW.

Last fall, the band made their network TV debut performance performing “I’m Just Me” from their sophomore release Free Dimensional on The Late Show With David Letterman, followed by a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.   Check out the fantastic new video for the current single “Runaway Love” in addition to an acoustic version of the song which recently premiered on Rolling Stone.

Free Dimensional  (co-produced with the Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor [Bjork, The Killers, Prodigy, UNKLE, Robyn, Austra])  retains the melodicism, clever juxtapositions, and lyrical honesty that garnered kudos for the debut, Special Affections.  What’s different this time around is how the songs were conceived and produced. “I wanted the first album to have that homespun quality,” John O explains (whose fashion-forward glam-style was recently compared to Lada Gaga in Entertainment Weekly). Back then, he was wary of too many high-tech bells and whistles. “A big part of being afraid of something is not understanding it,” he admits. “Once I became more comfortable with the medium of electronic music, it was only natural to want to improve.”

Acclaim for Free Dimensional:

“EW Recommends” – Entertainment Weekly

“Diamond Rings Shine” – Billboard

“…it’s a must-download for us.” – MTV.com

“Smokey and glam” – Stereogum.com

“Hook after perfect pop hook” – TinyMixTapes
