In anticipation of the new album for 2015, Belgium’s dark groove rockers DIABLO BLVD are releasing a 4-song digital EP entitled Rise Like Lions, which is available for pre-order on iTunes, issues Nuclear Blast.
The track listing for the Rise Like Lions EP is as follows:
01 – Rise Like Lions
02 – Son Of Cain
03 – Peace Won By War
04 – Rise Like Lions (Radio Edit)
DIABLO BLVD’s full-length Follow The Deadlights album is scheduled for North American release on January 27, 2015, via Nuclear Blast.
The follow-up to their 2011 release Builders Of Empires (which spent 21 weeks on the Belgian Ultratop charts), DIABLO BLVD entered the legendary ICP studios in Brussels with producer Ace Zec (CUSTOMS, THE SET UP) earlier this year to record Follow The Deadlights. Jay Ruston and Paul Logus – the American duo behind the sound of ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR, MEATLOAF, and STEEL PANTHER – were recruited for mixing and mastering duties.
Formed in 2005 in the city of Antwerp, Belgium and named after a CORROSION OF CONFORMITY song, DIABLO BLVD is led by notorious stand-up comedian & singer Alex Agnew. Influenced by the likes of DANZIG, THE CULT, GUNS ‘N’ ROSES, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, and TYPE O NEGATIVE, this eclectic five-piece features current and ex-members of A BRAND, BORN FROM PAIN, and MEURIS, and together, they create dark rock from the depths of hell.
