Diarrhea Planet
Diarrhea Planet
Diarrhea Planet is a six-piece rock and roll band from Nashville, TN. Their sound has
often been described as The Ramones holding Van Halen hostage with an arsenal of
fireworks and explosives. Diarrhea Planet's four guitarists provide enough riffs to make
Jack Black squeal like a schoolgirl, while lead singer Hodan delivers enough hooks to
straighten the curl out of Justin Timberlake's hair. In a world of unintelligible lo-fi
recording, reverb drenched vocals, and tuneless guitars, Diarrhea Planet aims to put the
backbone back into rock and roll.
The band initially formed in the Spring of 2009 with drummer Casey, and two guitarists
Jordan Smith and Evan P. Donohue. That fall the band decided to flesh out their sound
with bass and a third guitar, adding Mike Boyle and Brent Toler. They self-released the
five song EP, Aloha, in November. The album sounded like a mix between an
uncontrollable college party and a gut-wrenching Tae Bo workout. With the Mediafire
link popping up on a variety of blogs, Aloha became a sleeper online sensation.
Perhaps due to the unusual band name, the EP garnered around 1,500 downloads in its
first week online. By the time the band took down the Mediafire link early the next year,
The EP had collected over 10,000 downloads.
In the summer of 2010, Evan P. Donohue decided to focus on his own music and left
Diarrhea Planet. The band quickly adopted shredders Evan Bird and Emmett Miller,
generating Diarrhea Planet's most empowering line-up. The band shifted some of their
focus from delinquent party rock to slightly more sophisticated songwriting and guitar
theatrics that will make every living guitar hero cry out of joy and/or despair. After this
change-up, the band played an exhausting amount of local shows. They have opened
for acts such as Wavves, Fucked Up, Jeff the Brotherhood, Andrew Jackson Jihad,
Defiance OH, Jacuzzi Boys, The Spits, and The Coathangers. They have also played a
variety of basements, warehouses, frat bars, and dorm rooms. The overwhelming
volume and sheer brutality of their live onslaught satiates those who crave power and
thunder, while the meek grovel on the beer-soaked floor. The wall of heavy riffage and
intricate shredding infuses audiences with enough electrical energy to stave off sleep for
the rest of the weekend. Despite their leanings towards punk and heavy metal, Diarrhea
Planet swears by the Bible of pop. With a distinct emphasis on vocal hooks and
harmonies, their shows often morph into massive, drunken sing-alongs.
ormed in the winter of 2011, when Sharaden and David were introduced by a mutual friend. They shared the same musical interest, and goals for what they were wanting to get out of it. Working with different lineups, the band finally found one that works, and are planning future recordings with more shows to follow.
