Diamond Rings Announces North American Tour Supporting Twin Shadow


Canadian electropop artist Diamond Rings (AKA John O) is readying a new North American tour this upcoming September in support of his album, Special Affections, which was just re-released June 21st via Astralwerks Records. Diamond Rings has the incredible honor of opening for "electronically endearing" Twin Shadow as part of his "Clean Cuts" North American Tour, which kicks off September 4th with performances at Making Time in Philadelphia, PA.  As if news of the tour wasn't enough, Diamond Rings was selected for the 2011 Polaris Prize long list, Canada's highest honor for an emerging artist.  That's a pretty big effing deal!

With last year's opening gig with Swedish electropop queen Robyn, not to mention thrilling live performances at SXSW and CMJ 2010 was a pretty big year for the Toronto-born Diamond Rings, and from the looks of things 2011 isn't slowing down in the slightest.  When Special Affections was originally released last October on Secret City Records, Diamond Rings caught the attention of MAJOR publications including Pitchfork, New York Times and NME to name a few.  Now that he has the full support of Astralwerks, there's no telling where he's going to go from here.  Can't go anywhere but up, I suppose.  Check out tour dates with Twin Shadow below.  John O had this to say about his privileged role as an opener:
"I'm really excited to be sharing the stage with someone as talented and unique as Twin Shadow," said John O' of Diamond Rings, "Between his clean coif and my own we'll finally see if two heads are better than one. Hopefully he lets me borrow some of his jackets!"
Check out a full list of tour dates below and make sure you go show your support for Diamond Rings!  I've also included the video for "Wait & See" for your enjoyment so check that out below.  Download Special Affections on U.S. iTunes HERE.
