The sparkling debut album by Bento, DIAMOND DAYS, marks a new musical creation from Ben Gillies, drummer and co-founder of Silverchair.
The first single Diamond Days has been embraced by fans at home and abroad. The catchy chorus along with the song’s sentiment made it the perfect unofficial soundtrack of the recent AFL finals (Diamond Days and was used numerous times throughout the semi and grand final broadcasts).
To celebrate the release Bento are offering the single Diamond Days as a FREE download from HERE
The DIAMOND DAYS album is set for release on Friday, 26 October, 2012. Prepare yourself for twelve new bristling and glistening rock & roll songs, with Ben up front, singing his heart out, singing his own songs, and opening up like you’ve never heard him before. The album was co-produced by Ben Gillies and Eric J Dubowsky (Faker, Art Vs Science) and features an array of Ben’s muso mates throughout.
An exclusive and intimate album listening party and showcase of the incredible Diamond Days art exhibition will take place in Sydney on Tuesday, 23 October and Bento is giving fans an opportunity to be a part of the celebrations. Watch the Bento art creation come to life below
