With heavy riffs and wailing, powerhouse vocals, Toronto's Bloody Diamonds are a rock n' roll monster.

Biography

Bloody Diamonds play rock n' roll. Soulful, powerful vocals and dirty riffs make their hard-hitting live show a bewitching act to behold. Somewhere between Black Sabbath, Jack White and Patti Smith lays this Toronto-based four-piece, with a vocalist who is one minute soft and sweet - then foaming at the mouth. With years of heavy touring under their belt, the band is currently back in the studio after a recent cross Canada tour supporting their latest release 'Tough Love' - a raw and intoxicating five-track record.

"The real story with Bloody Diamonds, hands down, is lead singer Sara Elizabeth. There are very few people with pipes that come close to her controlled-yet-wild dynamic." - NOW Magazine

"I was particularly impressed by the moody and introspective vibe from Bloody Diamonds, in particular the raw and guttural energy from lead vocalist Sara Elizabeth." - Lithium Magazine

Lyrics

Skin and Bones

Written By: Bloody Diamonds

Take all of my money, I don't really even need to eat
I live off of skin and bones, skin and bones, skin and bones

I've shed tears here, I've shed blood here
But I've never had your love
There's been ice cold winters, and indian summers
But I've never had your love

So I suck it up
I tough it out
And I leave you in the dust

Take all of my money, I don't really even need to eat
I live off of skin and bones, skin and bones skin and bones

I've shed tears here and I've shed blood here
But I've never had your love
Every bones been broken and hearts been aching
But I've never had your love

So I suck it up
I tough it out
And I leave you in the dust

Take all of my money, I don't really even need to eat
I live off of skin and bones, skin and bones, skin and bones
(x2)

Take all of my money, I don't really even need to eat
I live off of skin and bones, skin and bones, skin and bones
(x2)

Tough Love

Written By: Bloody Diamonds

If I pull the trigger when no one’s around
Does a shotgun really even make a sound

This ain’t nothin but…

Chorus:
Tough love, you’re gonna burn, burn
Tough love, you’re gonna burn, burn

How I want to love you, but it just can’t be done
So I’ll load these bullets, and you better run

This ain’t nothing but…

Chorus X2

Toxic

Written By: Bloody Diamonds

I am strong till I get hurt
Then I turn into stone
You told me you’d fight till the end
But I am here alone

You lie, you cry, but I’m not your fool

Chorus:
You’re toxic, ohh, and we’re going under
Toxic, ohh, I can feel the thunder
Toxic, ooh, toxic, ooh

All you wanted, the gold and riches
It’s all that you see
But I’m not in this to act so shameless
There’s no skeleton key

You lie, you cry, but I’m not your fool

Chorus

I can see you watching me
You’re waiting, you’re waiting
Feels like you’re digging my grave
I’m begging, I’m begging

You lie, you cry, but I’m not your fool

Chorus X2

Medicine

Written By: Bloody Diamonds

You’re runnin round with a gun in your hand
Push and pull just as fast as you can
Blowin around like a damn hurricane
Feelin like I’m livin with a ball and chain

Chorus:
Lets dance with the devil
I’m addicted to the wrong medicine

Your eyes are rollin in the back of your head
I’m building my own coffin
Movin so fast, we’re a puff of smoke
We’ll keep on runnin till the lights go out

Chorus X2

There’s just something in the way
You melt my heart
Oh I know it’s poison
But I can’t stop

Chorus X2
