Diamond Rings regroups with D’Urbervilles, rename band Matters

March 30th, 2011

Long before he strapped on the gold lamé tights and donned rainbow facepaint, Diamond Rings (aka John O’Regan) was a member of the Toronto post-post-punk band The D’Urbervilles. Together they released two records between the years of 2005 and 2008 – but now they are no more.

Instead of calling it a day though, The D’Urbs have relaunched under the name Matters and already have a brand new 7″ called “Get In Or Get Out,” which you can order here from O’Regan’s Hype Lighter imprint. The single precedes a full-length album, which currently has no release date.

The band will road test some of their new tunes and re-enter society when they play a handful of dates in April alongside Kingston power duo P.S. I Love You.

April 6 Ottawa, Ontario – Mavericks
April 7 Toronto, Ontario – The Garrison
April 8 Montreal, Quebec – Casa Del Popolo
April 9 Kingston, Ontario – The Grad Club

You can check out the video for “Get In Or Get Out” (directed by O’Regan’s regular collaborators Colin Medley and Jared Raab) below.
