Diamond Youth Release Acoustic ‘UK OK’ EP

Baltimore, MD's Diamond Youth have released a digital-only acoustic EP titled UK OK via Bandcamp.

The EP features three previously-released songs, reworked acoustic and one new acoustic track.

UK OK will help raise money to cover costs for the band's upcoming UK tour with Citizen and Headroom.

Guitarist Sam Trapkin says, "If it was up to us, we'd make everything for free. But tickets to the UK this summer aren't even like, "Oh yeah, I could see why it costs that much."

"So one option is to disband and cut our losses. Another option is to start a Kickstarter, which is gross. A third option would be to actually make something and sell that, which is what we did."

Take a listen to the EP’s lead track below:
