Chicago's DIAMOND PLATE will release their new album, Pulse, tomorrow (August 20th) in North America via Century Media/Earache Records. The album is out on digital formats in Europe today, August 19th. A full stream of the album can be found below.
The follow-up to the band's 2011 debut album, Generation Why?, was recorded with producer Neil Kernon (JUDAS PRIEST, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) at Studio Chicago in the band's hometown.
"During the months of recording, the album took on a life of its own. Our goal was to capture the energy of a live band, and working with Neil gave us the freedom to create the music we've always wanted to play. A straightforward explanation of the title Pulse is that it represents music, or life, in its purest form. The real meaning behind the album can only be discovered by the person using his/her ears."
The artwork for Pulse was created by artist Gustavo Sazes (MORBID ANGEL, ARCH ENEMY, SEPULTURA).
