PS I Love You w/ Diamond Rings @ Mercury Lounge
P.S. I Love You

"Long before he strapped on the gold lamé tights and donned rainbow facepaint, Diamond Rings (aka John O'Regan) was a member of the Toronto post-post-punk band The D'Urbervilles. Together they released two records between the years of 2005 and 2008 - but now they are no more.

Instead of calling it a day though, The D'Urbs have relaunched under the name Matters and already have a brand new 7? called "Get In Or Get Out," which you can order here from O'Regan's Hype Lighter imprint. The single precedes a full-length album, which currently has no release date.

The band will road test some of their new tunes and re-enter society when they play a handful of dates in April alongside Kingston power duo P.S. I Love You. [Much Music]

Those April Matters dates are listed below.

Meanwhile John O'Regan is out on tour as Diamond Rings with P.S. I Love You. They play Glasslands tonight (3/31). Last night they played Mercury Lounge, where like at SXSW, John joined P.S. I Love You on stage for their last song... during their first set. John took off beore P.S. I Love You played their second set - the free late-night one at the same venue (did anyone make it out to that one?).

A bunch of pictures and video from the earlier show (video of the collaboration included), below....
