Moby Forms a New Heavy Metal Band

May 5, 2010 (7:18 am) GMT
Although he's known in the dance music stream, Moby ventures out with three other guys in Diamondsnake.

Dance music star has announced plans to hit the road with a heavy metal band. The "Porcelain" hitmaker has formed a new group, called Diamondsnake, with three pals, and he has released the tracks "What the World Needs Now Is Rock", "We Wanna Love You" and "Rock and Raw" on websites Facebook and MySpace.com.

A statement from Moby reads, "Combining such disparate influences as rock, hard rock, metal, and heavy metal, New York City's Diamondsnake was borne out of a shared love for entering a small, dark, and musty room, plugging into a few amps, and playing as loud as possible for a seriously long time."

Diamondsnake is set to make its concert debut on June 17 at New York City's Highline Ballroom.
