A Dead Kennedys-influenced political punk band have released a new single as they continue to grow their fanbase beyond the Home Counties.

Diamond In The Dirt were formed in early 2015 by guitarist Sunny and drummer Billy, who hail from Hertfordshire.

Taking on bassist Aden and lead guitarist Sam over a couple of beers, they made an immediate impact, selling out their first gig.

Over the last five years they have played sell-out gigs around the Home Counties and London.

As well as the Dead Kennedys, they cite IDLES and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Every Time I Die and Strange Bones among their influences.

Sunny’s unique vocal style and trashy guitars are melded with punchy riffs, and solid rhythm section to make a high-energy sound.

They have two previous releases to their name, the single Brexshit and the three-track EP Hopeless.

Now they’ve released a new song, Please Don’t Spit In My Mouth, which is the first song from their next EP, which is due out later this year.

It’s a blast of high-energy punk which should go down nicely with anyone who likes modern bands like IDLES and Slaves, as well as fans of hardcore. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the release.
