DIAMOND HEAD Schedules First-Ever Japanese Concert

NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) legends DIAMOND HEAD have issued the following update:

"Following a successful UK tour with THIN LIZZY, DIAMOND HEAD are thrilled to be playing in Japan in 2008. This will be the first time that the band have played Japan and look forward to playing for their Japanese fan base. The venue is Shibuya O-East and the date is Sunday, February 17. It's a big hall and is considered to be one of Tokyo's premier venues."

DIAMOND HEAD recently supported THIN LIZZY on 14 dates of their UK tour.

The band's new album, "What's In Your Head?", was released on July 30. The CD was previously described by the band as "a powerful but varied collection of songs." The album includes the song "Reign Supreme", which is said to be "the heaviest track DIAMOND HEAD have recorded since 'Am I Evil?'"
