We all make bad decisions. Naming your band Diarrhea Planet is definitely one. Not seeing the band because of that name, though, is an even worse one. Maybe the Nashville-based fivesome got together and said, "Let's come up with a gross name for our band. Then, let's redeem ourselves by making incredible music." One questionable decision, one brilliant decision. They don't cancel each other out.
The band's August 2013 release, I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, is rich indeed. DP's pop-punk sound is soaked in thick guitar riffs and the songs have an end-of-summer, cut-loose vibe but for grownups. You can listen to "Babyhead" off IRBYWD at consequenceofsound.com
