Diamante Premieres New Single
"There's A Party In My Pants (and You're All Invited)"

Dirty Blonde EP out April 7

LA-based teen rocker chick Diamante premiered her new song, "There's A Party In My Pants (and You're All Invited)", yesterday at Revolver.

"There's A Party In My Pants" is the third single to be released since "Bite Your Kiss" that hit #3 on Billboard's Hot Singles Chart in 2014.

""There's a Party in My Pants (and You're All Invited)" is about bringing all different kinds of people together despite their race, age, sexuality, etc. and genuinely having fun."- Diamante said in a recent interview with Revolver. "The people I have met living in Hollywood these past few months and the real-life experiences I've had inspired the rebellious spirit in this song. I wanted to write something that was in-your-face, upbeat, and more than anything, something that defied societal norms and really spoke to everyone."

Diamante will be joining female fronted rock band FLYLEAF on Revolver's Hottest Chicks Tour beginning next week. The tour begins on April 8 and the lineup includes- Flyleaf, Fit For Rivals, The Agonist (on select dates), Diamante and Falling For Scarlet. Shortly after the Revolver tour, Diamante will set out again in June to join Whitesnake's The Purple Tour for a series of select dates. Diamante will join the tour on June 2 in Santa Rosa, CA and will continue until the tour hits Houston. TX on June 20.

At only 18, this rocker and her self written songs, has also taken home the title of Best Rock Records at the Indie Music Channel Awards two years in a row, as well as wins in the categories of Best Young Artist, Best Rock Recording, Best Music Video for "Impossible," and the coveted title of Teen Artist of the Year. Diamante can be compared to a modern day Pat Benatar or Debbie Harry with her powerful and edgy sound.

All Fools' Day

  • "The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool." — William Shakespeare, As You Like It
April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day although not a holiday in its own right, is a notable day celebrated in many countries on April 1. The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies and neighbors, or sending them on fools' errands, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, the jokes only last until noon. If you play a trick on someone after this time you are the April Fool. Elsewhere, for example in Ireland or France, the jokes may last all day.

Review Tueasday: The Walking Dead - Season 5

Season Five
In a post-zombie-apocalypse world, a group of survivors try to make their way from the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia up to Washington DC. 
The season started off with our group of survivors in the clutches of the cannibals of TERMINUS. They were mostly reunited but in terrible danger of being DINNER. Episode one was a tremendous start to the season with more blood, guts, and action than we sometimes see in am entire season. 

Since then this season seemed more like a journey to unify the stories of the television show and the comic book source material. The season finale continued that course.

Right now the big deviation is the Wolf Pack. I don't remember them from the books, but their presence reaffirms the tagline from a previous season, Fear the LIVING

The season finale let us see how much of a threat the Wolf Pack is. Morgan made it to Alexandria. Rick is established as village bad ass. 

In general, I liked this season very much. I am looking forward to next season. They have already announced that John Hamm will be joining the cast as Negan, so that means they are definitely getting to that TOTAL WAR storyline. The new series, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD is coming out soon as well. It's going back to the beginning of the pandemic from the point of view of survivors in Los Angeles.
