Diarrhea Planet

"Shred till you're dead, or go to hell." - Diarrhea Planet Diarrhea Planet is a six-piece rock and roll band from Nashville, TN. Their sound has often been described as TheRamones holding Van Halen hostage with an arsenal of fireworks and explosives. Diarrhea Planet's four guitarists provideenough riffs to make Jack Black squeal like a schoolgirl, while lead singer Hodan delivers enough hooks to straighten the curlout of Justin Timberlake's hair.

"Shred till you're dead, or go to hell." - Diarrhea Planet Diarrhea Planet is a six-piece rock and roll band from Nashville, TN. Their sound has often been described as TheRamones holding Van Halen hostage with an arsenal of fireworks and explosives. Diarrhea Planet's four guitarists provideenough riffs to make Jack Black squeal like a schoolgirl, while lead singer Hodan delivers enough hooks to straighten the curlout of Justin Timberlake's hair. In a world of unintelligible lo-fi recording, reverb drenched vocals, and tuneless guitars,Diarrhea Planet aims to put the backbone back into rock and roll. The band initially formed in the Spring of 2009 with drummer Casey, and two guitarists Jordan Smith and Evan P.Donohue. That fall the band decided to flesh out their sound with bass and a third guitar, adding Mike Boyle and Brent Toler.They self-released the five song EP, Aloha, in November. The album sounded like a mix between an uncontrollable collegeparty and a gut-wrenching Tae Bo workout. With the Mediafire link popping up on a variety of blogs, Aloha became a sleeperonline sensation. Perhaps due to the unusual band name, the EP garnered around 1,500 downloads in its first week online. Bythe time the band took down the Mediafire link early the next year, The EP had collected over 10,000 downloads. In the summer of 2010, Evan P. Donohue decided to focus on his own music and left Diarrhea Planet. The bandquickly adopted shredders Evan Bird and Emmett Miller, generating Diarrhea Planet's most empowering line-up. The bandshifted some of their focus from delinquent party rock to slightly more sophisticated songwriting and guitar theatrics that willmake every living guitar hero cry out of joy and/or despair. After this change-up, the band played an exhausting amount oflocal shows. They have opened for acts such as Wavves, Fucked Up, Jeff the Brotherhood, Andrew Jackson Jihad, DefianceOH, Jacuzzi Boys, The Spits, and The Coathangers. They have also played a variety of basements, warehouses, frat bars,and dorm rooms. The overwhelming volume and sheer brutality of their live onslaught satiates those who crave power andthunder, while the meek grovel on the beer-soaked floor. The wall of heavy riffage and intricate shredding infuses audienceswith enough electrical energy to stave off sleep for the rest of the weekend. Despite their leanings towards punk and heavymetal, Diarrhea Planet swears by the Bible of pop. With a distinct emphasis on vocal hooks and harmonies, their shows oftenmorph into massive, drunken sing-alongs. Diarrhea Planet put out their first physical release in the spring of 2011, when Philadelphia's Evil Weevil labelreleased Aloha on 7" vinyl. That summer, the band signed to Nashville's Infinity Cat Recordings (home of Jeff theBrotherhood, Heavy Cream, Natural Child, Pujol, and more) and released the 7" Yama-Uba as part of Infinity Cat's Econolineseries. The band has traveled throughout the East coast on extensive self-booked tours in support of their two releases. Thisfall, the band will continue to tour in support of their full-length album, Loose Jewels, which comes out September 20th onInfinity Cat Recordings. « hide
