Diarrhea Planet Turn To Gold on LP + Download

The gravitational pull of Diarrhea Planet is strong; once you get caught in the orbit of their stadium-sized riffs and blistering solos, it's hard to escape. The Nashville six-piece has been melting faces since its debut 7" Aloha first started making waves outside the leafy campus of Belmont University, where its members first met. What started as a dorm room dick joke between two friends bored by the music-business ladder-climbing of their classmates has grown into one of the biggest – and loudest – rock acts to come out of Nashville since their big bros and labelmates in JEFF The Brotherhood. 

On their latest LP for Infinity Cat Recordings, Turn to Gold, the Planet boys worked with Vance Powell, the Grammy-winning engineer and Jack White confidant. Powell used his expertise in recording live sound to capture some of the energy of the Diarrhea Planet live experience – they tracked the main guitar and drum tracks live, in the same room, for a record that's both massive and frenetic. It's easily the most sophisticated and complex music they've ever made, but still carries the joyous irreverence that minted thousands of rock fans across the country.

The band's rhythm section, which features drummer Ian Bush (aka Tuff Gus) and bassist Mike Boyle, is the bedrock on which the foundation is built, but what makes Diarrhea Planet explode is the raw power of its four guitars. Not one note is wasted, and each ax slinger plays a role; Jordan Smith writes soaring power pop singalong hooks; Brent Toler brings a classic rock sensibility and chunky, fuzzy riffs; Emmett Miller's wields classical training and a wizard-like five-finger pick-less technique for mind-bending, finger-tapping solos; and Evan Bird is the glue that holds them all together, capable of playing any part (or instrument) as needed.
