Astralwerks is proud to announce the highly-anticipated release of Diamond Rings’ brand new album, Free Dimensional, on October 23rd, 2012, co-produced by the Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor (Bjork, The Killers, Prodigy, UNKLE, Robyn, Austra). We have also just confirmed exclusive live showcases in LA, SF, and Seattle during the month of August as well as an extensive fall tour as special guests of STARS (see dates below).Free Dimensional retains the melodicism, clever juxtapositions, and lyrical honesty that garnered kudos for 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. 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." Listen here on NEW!
