Diarrhea Planet are no longer merely the four-guitar-wielding monster of angst-ridden garage punk we fell in love with at South by Southwest. With both “Separations” and “Kids”, the lead singles off their forthcoming sophomore album, I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, the Nashville rockers displayed new found levels of moderation and accessibility. And even as they let loose a little with single No. 3, “Babyhead”, their sonic maturation and cohesion remains impressive.

All the trademarks of a fuzzy, grime-laden rock anthem are abound: the wall of churning guitars, the haggard vocals, the gradual meltdown into a raging cacophony. But amid all the chaos, there are a few signals (a random chord progression here, a little bit of extra melody there) that prove the band is firmly in control of every dissonant shard they unfurl. And rather than having all the order and structure ruin a dirty, filthy blast of pure rock and roll merriment, a little deliberateness actually makes the whole affair all the more rollicking and life-affirming. Clear space for a circle pit and click play below.

I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams is due out August 20th via Infinity Cat Recordings. In support, the band has announced fall tour dates with The So So Glos. Consult their full schedule below.
