This band has always been special to me, I must have listened to "We Have This Place Surrounded" off their 2005 release Exits one million times! A few years back I was in Amsterdam and I smoked some really crazy pot, because well.... when in Amsterdam.... and it was pretty much the highest I had ever been - and I put The Boxer Rebellion albums on repeat and went to never never land while watching my best friend Greg do a lyrical dance... it was EPIC!
Personal stories aside, The Boxer Rebellion have a new album coming out and I am totally thrilled! Their new single "Diamonds" is filled with dreamy layers of fuzzy guitars and soaring vocals totally true to form. This London based indie rock quartet will release their new album Promises via their own Absentee Recordings label on May 14! Check out the video for "Diamonds" above!
