Die For Diamonds – new, hot and magnificent from Billion Dollar Babies!
Billion Dollar Babies, based in the middle of Sweden took shape in 2005, with a self-released EP called “Stand Your Ground” they managed to gain a fan base worldwide.
With an impressive number of live shows the band has gained it’s reputation as one of the most experienced and entertaining live acts in it’s genre. In 2008 Billion Dollar Babies were among a small number of unsigned artists who were selected to perform at Sweden Rock Festival and received fantastic reviews with statements such as “complete on all levels”.
Billion Dollar Babies offers simple straight forward hard rock, catchy songs and solid choruses, and their energetic and bombastic live shows tell us we are dealing with upcoming stars.
Musically the band is a mash up between KISS, Mötley Crüe and Bon Jovi. Directed by Quentin Tarantino – with the devil himself in the title role – like the band talks. There are times when everything comes together – energy, charisma and attitude, this is such moment.
Statement from BILLION DOLLAR BABIES:
“We are glad to be doing this album with our new brothers over at Pure-Rock, a sublabel of Pure Steel. The world has been waiting long enough for Billion Dollar Babies :-) and we’ll see you all in the end of April, Bigger, Louder, Better, doing some crazy fuckin live shows in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.”
Frankie Rich, Pat Kramer, Nic Lester & Jon Silver
