Formed in 1999, the Canadian Gothic Rock act released their eighth album, Diamonds, early this year.
The band has been forced to postpone a November 2020 UK tour to promote their new album.
After three years since their last studio album, Under Your Spell, The Birthday Massacre released an exciting series of dark and light songs. Diamonds explores themes ranging from heartbreak to anguish, from lust to love.
Set apart from other post-punk contemporaries by their distinctive soaring synths and guitars paired with Chibi's beautiful and reassuring vocals, the group dare to peek into the depths and look around, while simultaneously offering hope and joy.
From “Enter”, an epic and majestic opener, with its pounding bassline and soaring guitar textures, to the chugging guitars of “Run”, through the propulsive beats of “Mirrors”, right to the contemplative and highly atmospheric album ending “Parallel World”, Diamonds is a cohesive album that highlights both the instrumental and vocal prowess of The Birthday Massacre.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, the band has been forced to postpone a November 2020 UK tour to promote their new album. All nine shows have now been rearranged for the summer of 2021.
