NINE SONS OF DAN

April 18th 2012 13:57
RELEASE NEW SINGLE “DIAMOND SKIN”
AND ANNOUNCE NATIONAL “THE NEW KIDS” TOUR

Gold Coast (Australia) band Nine Sons of Dan release their highly-anticipated new single Diamond Skin to radio Monday April 16 and digitally to iTunes on Friday April 27 – the first single to be lifted from the bands forthcoming EP titled The New Kids.




The track follows up the hit single “She’s So Fine” from the debut EP Landslide after taking out the national New Artist to Radio (NA2R) award in the Rock category for 2011, earning the track a debut at number twenty-three on the national airplay charts and the number one position on the AIR Radio Charts after being the most added track to radio the week of it’s release.

NSOD’s Landslide recently made waves in the music scene overseas where, in the US, it was added to the rotation of over 140 radio stations, reaching the Top 30 Most Played charts at 12 stations and US music bible, Alternative Press, proclaimed the Sons as a band to watch.

Nine Sons of Dan’s much-anticipated follow up EP titled The New Kids is due for a worldwide release on June 29 2012 and features the attitude driven rock single Diamond Skin, mixed by accredited US Producer J.R. McNeely (Anberlin/Paramore).

Our new sound is a lot edgier, hits a lot harder and sounds a little more organic than our last EP. We have been trying for a long time to bring the energy of our live shows to our EP's and this time I think we have a done pretty good job of achieving that, says drummer Morgan “Flakey” Blake.


“For us, being in the studio is about getting our ass kicked. That’s the foundation of the personality of our band,” says Blake.



“We’re all wild guys and we love to play live and rock out as much as possible. When we come back into the studio, it’s the reminder of how good we actually need to be. We don’t have a problem with learning from other people. As fun as it is, it’s that harsh reminder to get better at what you are doing,” Singer Jay Bainbridge adds.



J.R. McNeally (Anberlin/Paramore) mixed first single Diamond Skin while the remaining five songs will be left in the hands of the highly reputable Forrester Savell (Karnivool/The Butterfly Effect/Dead Letter Circus).



It’s onstage where NSOD are truly at home. The young sons humbly began independently booking shows up and down the east coast, developing a strong live presence that landed them in front of crowds in excess of 20,000. Thriving on living the dream, NSOD will join the Rock the Schools tour beginning in April before hitting the road for their national headlining “The New Kids” tour in support of the newest EP that reflects where the band is today.



“When you start to get a name for yourself, people try to drag you down a lot,’’ the singer verbalises. “A lot of the lyrics are about the struggle of trying to just do what you are passionate about. I want people to know how ridiculously exciting it is for us five guys to be touring around to play for them.”



The drummer backs up his front man affirming, “We’ve been given the opportunity to launch ourselves and now we want to prove our worth with this EP.”



In the words of “Diamond Skin”…try stop us and we’ll grow stronger! The question is just how far can NSOD go?
