With an active fan-base and critical acclaim, high-energy Blues Rock act Transvaal Diamond Syndicate have earned their plays on stations like Triple J and continue to be one of the most requested acts on Australian Community Radio and the national Festival circuit. For full BIO click HERE.
The act is currently working on a second EP 'The Shackle' to compliment 'The Shadow' EP which will be released as a double-EP release later this year. The band raised $10,000 in 40 days through an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign in a great display of fan support and has just dropped a large 3 month tour in support of lead single 'How'd You Get So Low' which will see the band tour around the country at the back half of 2017.
TDS, well known for their festival appearances and crowd engagement, have hit the stage at Mojo Burning, Dead of Winter and Winter Warmer festivals already this year with Red Deer Music and Arts Fest, Melbourne's Cherry Fest and the Airlie Beach Music Festival lined up for the back half of the year.
Transvaal Diamond Syndicate consistently perform over 150 live all-original gigs per year and have done so since their inception in 2010. Known in the industry for a heavy and constant touring schedule, their brand of Blues Rock has seen them perform in all states of Australia thus far with 8 full-scale national tours (20+ dates) under their belts. These included epic 72 and 65-date jaunts.
The band is currently on the road in support of lead EP single 'How'd You Get So Low' whilst finishing off the EP in the studio on their days off. The band will tour hard until December.

On the back of 7 years of solid national touring (around 100-150 gigs per year), 2017 will be spent finishing recording on the second instalment of a double EP release scheduled for 2018 along with associated East Coast tours of Australia in support. Add to that a clip release as well as multiple Festival appearances and you have another busy year for the Heavy Blues troubadours.
