From today, Diamond Black officially become a 3-piece: 

Ben Christo (guitar, lead vocals), Adam Hart (bass, vocals, art) & Jan-Vincent Velazco (drums).

Relations between DB & original lead singer Jaakko Turunen remain positive & all previously released DB songs & videos featuring him will remain as they are in the world forever, with a number of other songs he co-wrote & sang on to feature on future releases. Jaakko was a founding member of DB who played a crucial role in the band’s musical & visual inception, direction & the composition of the upcoming album. We sincerely wish him all the very best for the future.

With exciting plans lining up for 2023, we are hugely energized for this next era of Diamond Black & thank you, dear Diamonds, for your passion, patience & incredible support!

Love & respect,

Ben, Adam & Vincent
