Diamonds (2020) is the eighth studio album of The Birthday Massacre, announced via the band's social media on January 1 2020. The album's official release was March 27th 2020.
“The night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us.”
Diamonds, the new album by The Birthday Massacre, contains an exploration of darkness as well as light, poison as well as its antidote. Within the songwriting, one can sense the passing of time, and the conflicts and resolutions that we can all feel. Nights end, and days resolve. If we look inside, we can find these precious emotions and conflicts. Every single one of them is valuable. Like the diamonds in the dark. And thus, we have "Diamonds" by the Birthday Massacre. The distinctive soaring synths and guitars, paired with our Chibi's beautiful familiar and reassuring voice, guides us all into the darkness as well as out to the light - guides us to mourn and to look inside, but also take our hand and invite us to dance, and remember - the night is short. It weighs heavy, but the light always awaits us.On the 23rd January 2020, the second track from Diamonds, "The Sky Will Turn" was premiered on YouTube, and the album became available for pre-order. The track list was released at the same time by Metropolis Records and The Birthday Massacre on bandcamp.
On 6th March, "The Last Goodbye" was released on Spotify and YouTube  and was announced as the 'the first "single"' on the band's social media on the 7th.
