‘By The Scars‘ is the new single from Diesel taken from the Sunset Suburbia project: a trilogy of EPs leading into an album in 2020.
Sunset Suburbia Vol. 1, which is available to pre-order now, follows last year’s top-20 retrospective, Diesel 30: a double CD which was led by the FM radio embrace of ‘Give Me Saturday Night’.
On Sunset Suburbia (Vol. I) (out 19 July), the union of spontaneity and experience yields four of the most instantly arresting songs of Diesel’s multi-platinum career: the kind of exhilarating FM radio hits that sealed his reputation as a 1990s pop-rock auteur with Hepfidelity, The Lobbyist and Solid State Rhyme.
Diesel says “There’s a lot of lost innocence in these songs. ‘By The Scars’ is pretty much about one or two years in my teens when a lot of things happened… I lost my virginity, I had two guys with balaclavas point a shotgun at me at a gas station… It’s about the time you basically realise the world isn’t as safe as you thought.”
The second Sunset Suburbia EP will drop later this year, Vol. III is currently under construction.
