Hello friends, it's been awhile...
but we have not been idle. Our work on the upcoming album is going very well and we thought it's time to officially announce our new member - or rather let him do it himself.
Please welcome Chris Blade Johnson on board. We are totally thrilled that he joined us and can't wait to get out to play together.
In case you don't understand Swiss German, please feel free to use the subtitles
If necessary we would record the album as a three-piece band and get guest musicians for the live shows...
Many people asked, if and how the Black Diamonds will continue. One of the asking people was Alice Malherbe with www.rocknews.ch
. Manu and Andi sat down to answer her questions.
Enjoy the interview and stay tuned for more news.
With surprise and sadness we have to announce Dee's decision to leave the band.
Please find his official statement hereunder:
Dear Black Diamonds Fans !!
Due to various private reasons, I had to make the difficult decision to leave the band. I had to realize that I'm not able to manage all my activities and goals with the time at hand. Those past 6 years were just amazing and I feel very thankful for the time I spent with my boys. Many of my dreams - such as the european tour, our record deal, festival shows and buying my own record in a store - were fullfilled during that time.
My last show is going to take place on Friday, 14th of February as support for Crazy Lixx in Aarburg. I would be my pleasure to see some of the familiar faces again for my last appearance on stage.
Rock on guys, Dee.
The guys from the area Altstätten/Kriessern fired from all canons and placed a recommendation for the mainstage next year!
The X-Act Music Magazine
reviewed the Rock The Ring festival as well. Thank you so much!
Black Diamonds seem to have a lot of fun onstage and get a lot of positive attention from the audience. Especially drummer Manu turns out to be a literal escalation machine."
