In the spring of 2014, five friends got together in a grimy practice space in Boston to see what would happen. They all had long, diverse rock and roll pedigrees and their record collections were no different. They had no idea what they would do, only what they didn't want to do— anything they had already done before. The sound that developed was not rockabilly. It was not punk rock. It wasn't garage, soul, gothic southern swamp darkness, or straight mid-century American rock and roll…it was all those things. It was the echo of the record collections, the artists, and the aesthetics that they loved.

Last summer found Diablogato at Watch City Studios in Waltham, Mass. The tracks were laid down and made the old fashioned way...on vintage analog gear, straight to the tape with moments of brilliance, inspiration, rough edges, and wonderful mistakes all given the same respect. Released in early 2016, the self-titled debut album is a snapshot of where the band was at that time, a storybook of chapters showcasing the music that they love. The language these five friends had learned to speak as one onstage became clear on that album.

Heading into 2017, Diablogato is hard at work writing songs for a new 7” and full length record, continuing to hit the stage, feeling sanctified pouring it out, and wandering wherever their rock and roll love affair takes them. With Drew on vocals and guitar, Johnny on upright bass, Jesse on drums, Kim on baritone sax, and Charlie on lead guitar Diablogato rumbles down that road fueled by gasoline, larceny, and lust, you are more than welcome to come along for the ride.

On one of his rare and reluctant ventures out in public, mad musical scientist Glenn Bernard bumped into singer, songwriter, and greeting card maker Phil Ayoub at a coffee shop and filled him in on the last thirteen years of his life. Thirteen years that were spent locked in his basement laboratory polishing perfect power pop instrumental songs. Phil, slightly disturbed yet fascinated by Glenn and his musical creations, was later talking with his former drummer Scott McCue, who was equally intrigued.

So the trio came together to rock the rehearsal rooms of Pawtucket, RI like they’ve never been rocked before, until it finally dawned on them that people other than Taylor Swift and Adele actually record and even release music. And thus, it began…

Legend has it the album was recorded in its entirety 4 separate times at 4 different locations, including an assisted living facility, the Slater Park Zoo in Pawtucket, and completely live inside a local brewery. As well as in Glenn’s basement. Each time it was scrapped.

Failing to achieve the sound landscape they were looking for, and forced into doing landscape work to pay for further recording, the band sought a more professional recording atmosphere, landing at Bear’s Den Studio in Attleboro, MA, and subsequently at renowned Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA with Boston Music Award winner Ed Valauskas producing. Valauskas, who currently plays bass in 724 bands simultaneously, has worked with the likes of Buffalo Tom, Howie Day, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, Juliana Hatfield, Kay Hanley, The Click Five, and Graham Parker. All of which in no way prepared him for what he would encounter when working with Biltmore.

So who do they sound like?

“Coldplay with more guitars.”

“Foo Fighters without the screaming.”

“U2 if their last record was any good.”

The album is Revolutions and Romantics. Eleven songs performed and presented with love by Biltmore, the new band proudly born and aged in Providence, Rhode Island.

Biltmore. Rock for All.
