The Skinny: Nashville’s favourite rock and rollers, Diarrhea Planet are back with the first single from their upcoming album Turn To Gold; listen to “Life Pass” just above. Turn To Gold was recorded by Vance Powell at Sputnik Sound and will be released on June 10, 2016 via Dine Alone Records in Canada through partnership with Infinity Cat Recordings. A new Diarrhea Planet album is as hotly anticipated as catching one of their life-affirming live shows. Lucky for fans – the band is currently on the road. The tour includes Canadian stops in Nelson, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. For all confirmed tour details, see below.

Comprised of drummer Ian Bush, bassist Mike Boyle and a four guitar arsenal that includes, Jordan Smith (lead vocalist), Brent Toler, Evan Bird and Emmett Miller, Diarrhea Planet take everything you knew you loved about rock, punk and pop, jack it up way past 11, and leave you catching your breath and massaging the kink in your neck from all that head banging.
