Blasted Diplomats are four Chicago record shop long-timers who play excellent, garagey rock’n’roll with hints of 90s indie stalwart influence (Archers, Pavement, etc.), psychedelia, and Husker Du-ian epic melodic punk whimsy. WE LOVE THEM.
Our friends at Loud Loop Press say:
Fans of scraggly, alt-leaning rock ‘n’ roll need to get acquainted with Blasted Diplomats. The band let their influences wave proudly with their unpretentious vibe that takes cues from ’90s indie heavy-hitters like Archers Of Loaf and the melodic punk sensibilities of Hüsker Dü. Blasted Diplomat’s last official release was their 2009 debut, self-titled cassette from PlusTapes. But Chicago rock fans won’t have to wait long for a follow-up as yesterday Chicago label BLVD Records announced they’ved added Blasted Diplomats to their eclectic roster of rad locals that includes Blizzard Babies, Fake Limbs, Vee Dee, New Canyons and more.
We’ll be releasing their debut full-length with them very soon! Stay tuned for release date info and preorders.
