Diecast Prepare To Kick Off Headlining Tour
October 30, 2007
After an extremely busy and highly successful year Diecast will wrap-up the 'Internal Revolution' touring campaign with their first headlining U.S. tour in over three years. The massive two month trek, which also has Ekotren and Mower in the support slots, kicks off on Nov. 3rd.

Diecast greatly expanded their already diehard fanbase after two massive North American tours alongside Sevendust, in addition to breaking through to Active Rock radio with the “Fade Away” and “Nothing I Could Say” singles. The group has already begun the songwriting process for their much anticipated new full-length release and are now poised to deliver their most focused and dynamic album yet.

Paul Stoddard (vocals) states: “Hey everyone. We are really psyched about our up coming headlining tour. This will be the last Diecast run until the next album and it's a chance for all diehard fans and friends to get the full on hour long headlining experience. Tickets are selling great and the first show in New Jersey is already sold out, so if you haven't gotten your tickets yet, you should get them now. We are also still accepting YouTube video auditions for our new bass player/background vocalist position. If you want to audition please send us two videos (one of you playing and one of you singing). You can do it with a simple web cam and then send a link to diecastseeksbassplayer@gmail.com. We look forward to receiving your submissions as well as partying with everybody on the road these next couple of months.”

Paul also recently checked in with MTV2’s Headbangers Ball to give his “Bang of The Week.” To see what extreme video he selected, click here.

Diecast To Embark On U.S. Tour, Seeking Bass Player
September 26, 2007
After an extremely busy and highly successful year Diecast have begun the songwriting process for their much anticipated new full-length release. The group will also cap off 2007 with their first headlining U.S. tour in over three years. The two month trek will kick off in late Oct. with support acts and tourdates to be announced in the coming weeks.

Diecast greatly expanded their already diehard fanbase after two massive North American tours alongside Sevendust, in addition to breaking through to Active Rock radio with the “Fade Away” and “Nothing I Could Say” singles. The band are now poised to deliver their most focused and dynamic album yet.

Paul Stoddard (vocals) states: “Hey everyone, it’s been a while since we last talked so there’s a lot to catch up on. We are currently in the writing process for our new record. It’s going really great. Diecast have changed so much over time that it allows us to try and do anything to ensure that our new record is unique and powerful. We are trying out so many new ideas to keep things fresh while maintaining the Diecast sound from throughout the years. We should be in the studio in the beginning of 2008 and are eyeing an April to June release.

“We are also planning to embark on a headlining U.S. tour starting Oct 26th. It’s being booked as we speak and we’ll keep everyone posted as soon as dates are locked in. In other news, we regret to inform everyone that Brad Horion will no longer be playing bass. As a lot of you know, Brad had just come back from knee surgery on the last leg of the Sevendust tour and was doing great, as well as having an awesome time, but due to an un for scene family issue Brad is forced to call it a day for music for now and tend to what’s really important, his family. Brad will be missed and we wish him all best. Diecast is now currently looking for a replacement bass player. See below for additional info if you are interested in trying out. I’ll keep you all posted on anything else when it comes up and thanks again to all our great fans and friends who support us.”

Diecast are currently seeking a bass player. You must have pro gear, be able to play and sing, have great stage presence, be able to tour non-stop, be trustworthy and most of all have a great attitude. Please, no overbearing vices. We are also located in Massachusetts, so whoever we take will have to be from that area or be able to travel to there. You can check us out on www.myspace/diecast.com or www.diecast1.net.

We will be accepting submissions via email and we would like videos of you playing, as well as your singing. Scream too if you can. Also, send some live footage if you have it. You can make all your videos through YouTube, Google video, ect. This gives you the option to make it private if you want. Just send us the links. Send all submissions to diecastseeksbassplayer@gmail.com.

Diecast Kick Off Tour With Drowning Pool
May 13, 2007
Diecast kicked off a month-long North American tour as direct support to Drowning Pool tonight (Friday, May 11th) in Evansville, WI. The group recently completed a monstrous 10-week U.S. tour with Sevendust, which marked the longest tour of the group’s storied career as well as the third U.S. run in support of their newest album, 'Internal Revolution', praised by Decibel magazine as “perhaps the best music of the band’s career.”

Dennis Pavia (drums) checks in with the following report: “Our first show with Drowning Pool starts tonight, and we are very excited to get back on the road. We really feel like this is going to be a special tour for us since we've just come off the best tour we've ever had with Sevendust. It will be nice to see a lot of familiar faces and new ones as well.

“Our new video for “Nothing I Could Say” is now on MTV2's Headbangers Ball and its been getting a great response. It was actually really nice to make a video that didn't have any performance footage in it and that was more based around a twisted story. I've been in the band for a little over a year now and it's everything I’ve ever hoped for and more. Things keep getting better and hopefully we will have a chance to see you at the upcoming shows.”

Diecast’s new single for the track “Nothing I Could Say,” edited by Brian Malouf (Michael Jackson, Madonna, Pearl Jam), is quickly gaining momentum at Active Rock Radio. A video for the track was shot by Ian McFarland (Sick Of It All) and Mike Pecci. Their unique vision was a perfect fit for the track, resulting in an epic, conceptual piece that is grabbing people's attention. Check out the video at this location.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1997
HOME TOWN: Boston, MA
MEMBERS:
Paul Stoddard (vocals)
Jonathon Kita (guitar)
Kirk Kolatis (guitar)
Brad Horion (bass)
Dennis Pavia (drums)

DIECAST have triumphantly returned with a stunning new effort, Internal Revolution, which perfectly showcases their constant evolution while fully developing their own unique sound that is destined to stand out as one of the scene’s most promising acts. With a new lineup in tact, the group were able to expand upon their influences with no preconceived boundaries and the results were unlike anything they ever expected.

The additions of an entirely new rhythm section composed of Brad Horion (bass) and Dennis Pavia (drums) allowed Paul Stoddard (vocals) the freedom to finally unleash his natural singing voice, ultimately resulting in stellar, captivating melodies that still retain a hard edge. Guitarists Jon Kita and Kirk Kolaitis deliver their most impressive performances yet and prove that they are one of the most impressive up and coming guitar tandems.

Diecast spent the better part of this past year fine-tuning Internal Revolution and teamed up with longtime producer Paul Trust in late May to track the long awaited effort. The disc promises to be their biggest sounding and most dynamic offering yet. Stoddard further elaborates: “Diecast are now stronger than ever. I feel Internal Revolution is going to be one of the most diverse records to hit our scene to date. Guaranteed to be something for everyone.”

Diecast originally formed back in 1997 and spent years honing their craft in the underground scene. The group issued their debut album, Undo The Wicked, in 1998 on Samson Records, and it created a huge buzz within the burgeoning Northeast scene. The hype caught the attention of Now or Never Records, who immediately signed the band and released Day of Reckoning in 2001.

The album was well-received by fans and press alike, and Diecast were quickly creating a name for themselves. The album’s standout track, “Singled Out,” showed the band’s diversity and songwriting ability, as it featured a captivating chorus matched with stunning melodies. The group were also one of the first bands of the metalcore genre to incorporate clean vocals into their songwriting, a true harbinger of the breadth and depth of the songwriting captured on Internal Revolution. 

The diversity encapsulated on Day of Reckoning afforded them the opportunity to open for the legendary Alice Cooper in the U.S. and proved that they can play in front of any audience and win them over. Hot off the heels of this tour, the band continued their touring domination with Chimaria and Unearth that would eventually lead up to their biggest touring opportunity in 2002, landing the opening slot on the Slayer/Hatebreed tour. The band stepped up and delivered huge performances, proving that they not only belonged on the same stage as these genre titans but could also hold their own in front of these crowds.

In 2003, Diecast enlisted vocalist Paul Stoddard who immediately pumped new life into the band and songwriting process. The group signed with Century Media Records and commenced recording shortly thereafter. The band stormed back onto the scene in 2004 with the ferocious album, Tearing Down Your Blue Skies, which marked their first effort with Stoddard handling vocal duties. The disc was hailed by critics as the band’s most accomplished work yet, as anthems such as “Medieval”, “Rise and Oppose” and “These Days” were greatly embraced by Headbangers Ball and Uranium. Diecast toured the world relentlessly with the likes of Ill Nino, Agnostic Front, Hatebreed, Napalm Death and 3 Inches of Blood, further showcasing their chameleon-like ability to throwdown with any band anywhere. 

With Internal Revolution, Diecast have now carved out their own refreshing, unique niche within the scene.
