Get Hip Recordings (GH-1131)

From high concept to one-man band to, finally, a full-fledged rock n’ roll combo, Rainy Day Saints are what's happening!

Main man Dave Swanson has surrounded himself with what they refer to in the music biz as “top-notch talent!” The amount of hours, days, years these guys have under their collective belts is, well…it's a lot.

From the rave reviews and major airplay of their debut album Saturday's Haze, the anticipation for new RDS is sky high. Diamond Star Highway delivers in full!

From the jangly to the distorted; from the pretty to the raw; from the rocked-out to the acoustic, and from the earthbound to the outers pace, this new album has it all! The influences are there, but they're dressed up in their own way. Yeah, it's pop. Yeah, it's powerful. Yeah, it's rock, and yeah, it does roll. So take a ride on the Diamond Star Highway.

There is no filler amongst the 11 tracks that comprise the album; just nine outstanding originals and two covers, including the best take ever on the Dead Boys’ punk classic “Sonic Reducer” (which they slow down, making it a spooky, haunting ballad) and Falling James’ “Terminal Island.” It's their happening and it freaks them out!
