Arriving June 15th, we get the full-length debut album from hard rocker, Diamante (which means diamond in Spanish). Her new album titled "Coming In Hot" will be released through Better Noise/Eleven Seven Music. Her new 14-song album kicks off with the high-energy, punk-like attitude of the title song as she carries a Joan Jett vibe into her music. She keeps up the raw, edginess feel with songs like "Sound Of Us" and "Had Enough," before delivering the emotional power ballad "Sorry." She revs the energy back up with the alternative rock appeal of "Haunted" and her amazing, modernized punk/rock cover of Heart's "Crazy On You." Diamante finishes up her new album with the punk-like fury of "Definitely Not In Love" and the power ballad "Lo Siento," sung in her native language.

Nashville-based Bad Cop will be hitting the decade mark next year as they release only their sophomore album this June. The new album titled "Hello Mr. Sunshine" has been years in the making as the call for touring disrupted the recording sessions as the band found international success. Their new 10-song release still carries that raw, post-punk sound that burned for the band so many years earlier. Bad Cop instantly inject you with the sonic energy of "AlviCass" and the steady bass groove of "Dreamer Man" as you drown in their timeless, indie-rock quality. The band deliver a sixties, garage-rock vibe to their music, in "Coco Sue" and "Illuminate Me" as they modernize the sound of their early influences. Bad Cop wrap up their new album with edgy-fueled punk energy of "Now I Can See" and the grunge rawness of "Green Eyes."

Americana artist Liz Frame recently released her new studio album "Sparrow In A Shoebox" with her band, The Kickers, who have made appearances at DelFest and MerleFest.
