On Sunday, November 1st starting at 12pm, the boys will celebrate in a fun Halloween style, where it all started, at 35 Lafayette, Sq, Haverhill, with many other cool musicians they have known for years.
In the past six and a half years, they have accomplished tours across the US, Canada and Germany, as well as performances at the House of Blues in Boston, the Boston Hard Rock Cafe, Earthfest, and the Topsfield Fair.
After originally forming as a cover band, AJ Marks, 17-year-old lead singer, Henry McIntyre, 15-year-old guitarist, Wolfgang, 14-year-old bassist, and Nick Calnan, 17-year-old drummer, have progressed to writing and recording their own original songs and plan to release a body of work in the near future.
The sound pays homage to the 80's rock-n-roll they started off covering with a modernized twist, mixing that sound with modern harmonies, pop-centric guitar and vocal riffs, and atypical lyrical themes. Songs such as "Live or Die" and "My Religion" highlight the group's hard rock format with thick, meaty guitars and soaring vocals, while the tracks "Out For Me" and "Medicine" keep the sound of the band, but accentuate the brighter side of their catalog that could fall in line with pop radio just as well as it could with rock stations.
With over half a decade under their belt, the chemistry between the boys, made up of all original members, proves an undeniable brotherhood between the four non-related musicians. In every one of their performances, the stage presence is very apparent and it's clear that Black Diamonds is a stage act that demands attention from the audience. Whether it be a packed rock club, a small bar or a music festival, their three-digit resume of shows is undeniably impressive.
Many other cool things coming up for the boys, follow their story:
