Diamond Youth to Tour This Summer in Support of April Release, ORANGE

Between Sam Trapkin and Brendan Yates  and Justin Gilman, Diamond Youth brings quite the diverse resumé to the table. Claiming Baltimore as their home, members of Diamond Youth are spread from Maryland to Chicago as well, creating an obstacle in terms of actually practicing as a band. However, using tools of the trade such as 3-way iChat, garage band, and voice note files, Diamond Youth has released 3 EP’s in their short tenure since the summer of 2012. Their latest record, Orange, was released via TopShelf Records on April 3rd and has gotten rave reviews.

 

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 Fighters, Queens 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. When it comes to what Diamond Youth has to offer, what you see is what you get; what you get is often times more than you can handle. 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. From silkscreen printing their own t-shirts, directing and editing their own music videos, to designing their own album art, Diamond Youth is a band that has a tight grip on their career and firmly believe in the DIY mentality which allows them to do all of this, and still give away their music for free.
