The Birthday Massacre Diamonds UK Tour

FRIDAY 30TH JULY 2021

Doors 7.30pm

Original Date 711/20

This event is over 18 only

“The night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us,” begins the darkly poetic tagline
from vocalist Chibi about ‘Diamonds’, the eighth album by The Birthday Massacre. In these current
troubling times that have forced the Canadian post-punk goth act to postpone a North American
tour that had been due to commence on its release date, we can only look forward to brighter days
ahead.
.


The tour will be the first opportunity for UK based fans to see new bassist Brett Carruthers perform
with the group. Carruthers is also the frontman of fellow Toronto-based act A Primitive Evolution,
who released an excellent album of industrial tinged rock entitled ‘Becoming’ on Metropolis Records
in 2018 and will remain an ongoing concern.

The rest of The Birthday Massacre say: “Welcome to the fold! Joining us on bass guitar is our long
time friend Brett. After ten amazing years, we’re sadly parting ways with Nate Manor. He is starting
a new chapter in his life and we wish him all the best. You always were and always will be a true
friend for life and we will miss you.”

‘Diamonds’ is released on 27th March 2020 and has been preceded by the single ‘The Last Goodbye’.
Typical of the band’s trademark sound, it explores the lower octaves with minor chords and midnight
dance beats, but always with a shining beacon of hope and light within. An embed code for the song
