He strolls into Texas next week with Robyn
Diamond Rings isn’t showing any signs of slowing down in 2011 after a 2010 that saw him go from curiosity to pop star in just a few months. In December he announced that he would be supporting Robyn on her 2011 North America tour, which started in January. Now Diamond Rings announces that he’ll be staying on the road through April on a co-headline tour with Canadian pals PS I Love You.
Following head-turning performances at SXSW and CMJ last year, Diamond Rings has gained widespread critical praise since the release of his debut full-length Special Affections on October 25 on Secret City Records. From big Pitchfork support to New York Times and NME nods, it’s clear Diamond Rings is ready to up the ante in 2011. He’s also been at the forefront of the radar in his native Canada, landing on the cover of national monthly Exclaim! and scoring the number-two spot in the sixth annual Hottest Bands in Canada poll behind only Arcade Fire.
Texas dates (with Robyn):
2/17 Austin, TX, ACL Live at the Moody Theater
2/18 Dallas, TX, South Side Music Hall
2/19 Houston, TX, Warehouse Live
