Diarrhea Planet has announced that their new LP, I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, will be released on August 20th via Nashville’s Infinity Cat Recordings. The admittedly badly-named band is previewing the highly-anticipated album with a new track, titled “Kids” (see Impose debut 5/24).
Back in December 2012, Diarrhea Planet headed to Marcata Recordings, the barn-turned-studio in Upstate New York owned and operated by Kevin S. McMahon, a famed indie producer behind records by Titus Andronicus, Swans, The Walkmen, Real Estate and plenty more. The band wanted to go as big as possible, and set about cutting an album that delivered just that – I’m Rich traipses giddily across the rock and roll spectrum thanks to the band’s ever-expanding understanding of how to utilize its four guitarists to maximum, orchestral effect. It’s glorious, unabashedly fun, and bolstered by a musical and emotional maturity that reveals itself in the increasing complexity of the arrangements, musicianship, and lyrics.
Diarrhea Planet will be taking their much buzzed about live show on the road starting next week, and have announced an August 17th hometown release show in Nashville!
