DIAMOND RINGS ANNOUNCES RUNAWAY LOVE TOUR
SET TO PERFORM AT THE SIRIUSXM INDIE AWARDS WHERE HE IS NOMINATED FOR ARTIST OF THE YEAR AND MALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR
Diamond Rings had an incredible 2012 with the release of his sophomore album Free Dimensional (Secret City Records), non-stop touring including a run of dates with Stars, as well as appearances on Letterman and Leno – there was no rest for John O! Now, 2013 is off to an amazing start with two SiriusXM Indie Awards nominations, for Artist of the Year and Male Artist of the Year. Diamond Rings has just announced a string of Canadian tour dates in March that will culminate in an appearance at the SiriusXM Indie Awards on Friday March 22nd during Canadian Music Week in Toronto. He will also be appearing at the annual SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Further information and tickets are available via Diamond Rings’ official website.
To mark the announcement of his 2013 Runaway Love Tour, Diamond Rings is kicking it elementary school and offering up a baker’s dozen of oversized Valentines in the form of his limited-edition heavy-weight silkscreen posters. Thirteen lucky winners across Canada will receive a signed and personalized Diamond Rings Free Dimensional poster.
To enter the contest, fans are invited to tweet their favourite love-related Diamond Rings lyric (bonus points for a rhyming couplet!) @diamondrings with the hashtag #runawaylove. Winners will be choo-choo-chosen by John O himself, and posters will be post-marked on Valentine’s Day, set to arrive before the start of the Runaway Love tour.
