The former Furyon and Colour Of Noise frontman describes the new song as being about an “inevitable ending”, explaining that "‘Black Diamonds’ is a metaphor for the loss of beauty/light/energy that occurs in the theoretical final stages of some stars life cycle (Black Dwarf). There were a lot of changes occurring around the time of the writing and demoing stages of this song. It started out as a song called ‘I hope you find what you’re looking for’ though after a rewrite session it morphed into the song we now know, being ‘Black Diamonds’.”

'Black Diamonds' was voted Number One in Louder's 'Tracks Of The Week' and received extensive airplay by the likes of Kerrang! Radio, Great Music Stories and more. In addition, Planet Rock Radio has added the song to their prestigious A-List.

Not one to hold back with his writing and performance, the songs on the upcoming album 'Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts' reflect real human experience, passion and great songs that hold potency, diversity and purpose.

"I’m aware that sometimes an album is just for the love of rock n roll and I do love that. It’s on my agenda", explains Matt. "It could be a song about a car, or thunder and lighting. However, the main stories on this album are all about people. The people that have been part of my life, the people that have loved, cared, nurtured, hurt, inspired, broken, stayed strong, lost themselves, found themselves. Family, friends, honesty, dishonesty, music and the music business, integrity and faith. The songs in this self-titled album are inspired by all these things.

Recorded at Rockfield's Quadrangle studio with acclaimed producer Nick Brine (Stereophonics, Thunder, Bruce Springsteen, The Darkness) and featuring the piano that Queen's Freddie Mercury used to record 'Bohemian Rhapsody'; Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts self-titled debut album delivers an exploration of soundscapes combined with mesmerising art inspired by benchmark "tracks of our lives" tied together with astonishing performances by Matt and the band aligned with innovative, fresh song writing.

'Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts' is a modern contemporary rock record that holds its own and then some; it digs deep and looks set to be a highlight of the year for rock music.

'Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts' debut album is released 19th April.

No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us.
