WOW WOW WOW…
We re super excited to be hosting Queer experimental indie punk band Shh…diam! On their Europeon tour through the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Germany with the support of Goethe Institute, to promote their second album, Eat Your Local Fruits.
Shh…Diam! opened for Anti-Flag in Kuala Lumpur in 2015 and have played more than 200 shows since 2009. They will be kicking things off with an album release party on July 20, in Kuala Lumpur, before heading to Amsterdam to start the month-long tour.
This will be the second time Shh…Diam! has toured Europe, having played a three-week tour through Germany, Sweden, and Finland in 2016 to promote their previous album Attack of the Kongketron. Besides Europe and Malaysia, Shh…Diam! has also played shows and festivals in Thailand and Singapore.
Shh…Diam! are the first openly queer band in a country where being gay is not ok, it’s illegal. They are actively involved in promoting LGBT rights in Malaysia, as individuals and as a band. They have spoken on panels at Queer events and organise events.
Phew… what to say about this fierce foursome. Superbly original, head bangingly fresh hip-hop rock. Incredibly catchy, you'll be singing all the lyrics in no time to the beautiful meaningful lyrics.
More coming soon…
