Diatessaron detail UK tour

Canadian prog band Diatessaron will visit the UK for a nine-date tour next month.

The young five-piece have one album and two EPs under their belts and are developing a following for their “lush harmonic cascades that pour over deeply personal poetry.” Formed in 2008, they describe their music as “amplified classical” and add: “it’s like classical music, only a fuck of a lot louder.”

Tour support comes from La Strange and Captain Horizon. Find out more.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
