EARACHE RECORDS is proud to announce a new signing to our diverse and talented roster. DIAMOND PLATE is a young, dynamic thrash band from Chicago, IL who have taken the midwest metal scene by storm and now have their eyes set on global domination. Formed in 2008, this 3-piece high-energy act encapsulates the spirit of "The Big Four" and has already earned high honors from respected outlets such as Terrorizer magazine, who named DIAMOND PLATE as one of the Best Unsigned Bands in the very year that the band first got together.
Currently in their late teens, guitarist, Konrad Kuplec, drummer, Jim Nicademus and vocalist/bassist, Jon Macak have played with some of the world's biggest metal acts. They have also have earned a reputation as an absolutely raucous live act. Despite all of the great praise in high places, DIAMOND PLATE feels their fans are the most important key to their early success. As Konrad Kuplec puts it, "The BEST praise we can get is having a kid seeing us at one of our shows for the first time and then coming over to our merch table and buying a shirt or cd. It's the most humbling and coolest feeling in the world. I'll always be grateful for the support our fans give us."
DIAMOND PLATE's full length debut album comes out in 2011
