NWOBHM pioneers and Hard Rock Hell XIII legends Diamond Head have signed a worldwide record deal with international label Silver Lining Music, and will release a brand new album “The Coffin Train” on May 24th this year.

The band revealed “We’re delighted to be bringing the Diamond Head lightning to our new family at Silver Lining Music and honoured to be standing alongside a stable of established international talent, which includes such legends as Saxon, Europe and Motörhead.  This is the start of an exciting journey and we can’t wait to share it with you all.”
