Chicago's DIAMOND PLATE have announced that their upcoming new album will be titled Pulse. 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.
Diamond Plate revealed the album title to fans by posting one letter each day over the last week until the title was complete.
The band comments: "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). The album is due to be released on August 20th in North America via Century Media/Earache Records and on digital formats in Europe on August 19th.
