Earache Records has issued the following announcement about signing a record deal with Diamond Plate:

"Earache Records is proud to announce a new signing to our diverse and talented roster. Diamond Plate is a young, dynamic thrash band from Chicago, IL who have taken the midwest metal scene by storm and now have their eyes set on global domination. Formed in 2008, this 3-piece high-energy act encapsulates the spirit of 'The Big Four' and has already earned high honors from respected outlets such as Terrorizer magazine, who named Diamond Plate as one of the Best Unsigned Bands in the very year that the band first got together.

"Currently in their late teens, guitarist Konrad Kuplec, drummer Jim Nicademus, and vocalist/bassist Jon Macak have played with some of the world's biggest metal acts. They have also have earned a reputation as an absolutely raucous live act. Despite all of the great praise in high places, Diamond Plate feels their fans are the most important key to their early success."

Konrad Kuplec also commented: "The BEST praise we can get is having a kid seeing us at one of our shows for the first time and then coming over to our merch table and buying a shirt or CD. It's the most humbling and coolest feeling in the world. I'll always be grateful for the support our fans give us."

The band's full-length debut album is set for release in 2011.

I seen these guys back in 08 with warbringer and overkill, and met them back in march. They were in front of me in line for Evile, Voivod, and Kreator. Congrats guys. Illinois thrash rules.
