LISTEN: Diamond Youth Stream New EP ‘Shake’

Diamond Youth

While Diamond Youth‘s roots in the hardcore scene are well documented, the band has always stayed strictly to a cleaner, more rock-and-roll oriented sound. With their new EP Shake, the band takes to a more punk-oriented sound while simultaneously showing signs of nostalgic surf-rock. The EP is due out on February 4 on Topshelf Records, but you can stream the whole thing after the jump, courtesy of A.V. Club.
