Diamond Head have announced a major new deal with rock label Silver Lining Music along with the release of a new album.

The Black Country rockers have kept the new deal a closely guarded secret until now but during a recent video shoot at Base Studios riff master Brian Tatler gave us the inside story.

The new deal and album, which is entitled The Coffin Train and out in May, marks a big step for the band, who have been a leading light in the British metal scene for more than four decades.

A spokesman for Silver Lining Music, who also have Saxon, Europe and Motorhead on their books, said: “The blend of Brian Tatler’s legendary chops with the exciting new visions of Rasmus Bom Anderson are electric indeed and we look forward to the world discovering that for themselves with Diamond Head’s forthcoming album, The Coffin Train.

“We are so proud to offer you the chance to catch a ride on this train with us.”
