MASSIVE TAKE OVER ONE OF UK'S BIGGEST BILLBOARDS TO PROMOTE DEBUT ALBUM

Aussie rockers MASSIVE are taking over one of the UK's largest billboards to promote their debut album, FULL THROTTLE, which is due to be released this coming Monday, July 21st.

Starting from Monday, the band will be featured on a 40 foot by 10 foot billboard along the M4 motorway near the junction with London's North Circular road, en route to the world's busiest airport, Heathrow.

For a band who are notorious road dogs - having once famously travelled 1,000 miles to play a single show - and who also feature a classic 1932 Ford Deuce Coupe on their album cover, it only seemed fitting to promote their pedal-to-the-metal debut album on a roadside billboard which will be seen by tens of thousands of drivers each day.

Look out for this billboard along the M4 next week: http://bit.ly/1nOPZ5D

Originally released independently in 2013 in the band's homeland of Australia, FULL THROTTLE is finally being released in the rest of the world, featuring four newly-recorded bonus tracks which weren't available on the original release, including two brand new original songs plus covers of AC/DC's "If You Want Blood (You've Got It)" and AEROSMITH's "Rats in the Cellar".

Listen to preview clips from the full album, including bonus tracks, at http://youtu.be/qkNiJPOFiJc

Pre-order FULL THROTTLE now on CD and limited edition double vinyl in Europe at http://webstore.earache.com/massive or in North America at http://uswebstore.earache.com/massive

FULL THROTTLE is also available to pre-order on iTunes, including three free-in-advance tracks which are available to download immediately when you pre-order, at http://bit.ly/fullthrottle-itunes

DIAMOND PLATE ANNOUNCE SHOWS WITH MEGADETH

Chicago metal trio DIAMOND PLATE have announced two very special shows with thrash metal legends MEGADETH.

DIAMOND PLATE will be supporting MEGADETH at Artpark in Lewiston, New York on July 15th, and at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana on July 18th.  DIAMOND PLATE have also revealed that they are currently working on the follow-up to their 2013 album, PULSE.

DIAMOND PLATE guitarist KONRAD KUPIEC comments:

"A lot has happened in the past few weeks.  We've blown an RV transmission and had it fixed with a little help from our amazing fans.  We've dealt with a death in the family and grown together as a band.  Above all, we've started writing the new album.  Now, we're beyond excited to announce not one, but two shows with the metal titans Megadeth.  Honored, humbled, and ready to lose our minds as always!"

Jul. 15 - Lewiston, NY - Artpark
