It is time to join the Syndicate… Time to take action and get on board…

Transvaal Diamond Syndicate (TDS) are the manufacturers of some of Australia’s finest foot-stompin’ swamp and dirty blues/rock.

“They are right up there with The Fumes and Dan Sultan.” - Who The Hell

July 2009 saw the beginning of a rapid upwards journey for Transvaal Diamond Syndicate, almost immediately garnering attention for their raw, energetic, exciting and often primeval live shows. Since then, the TDS boys have only gone from strength to strength, gathering fans left and right from constant touring and performing and engaging with fans through their strong online presence (e.g YouTube - Tuesday Tinnies with TDS).

Now it seems all the hard work is paying off - Transvaal Diamond Syndicate’s year will be shaped by their inclusion on Australia’s premier Blues and Roots Festival, Byron Bay Bluesfest, alongside international acts such as Bob Dylan, Michael Franti & Spearhead and Ben Harper.

Brand new single Devil on My Shoulder, a dancey sure-to-be-radio-classic number all about those dirty little secrets, those things that you can’t speak about in “polite” company, will also be released April 1 (iTunes), with the full next EP due in July.

2011 has also seen TDS’ core members Christian Tryhorn and Tim Price add multi-instrumentalist Matthew Barker to their live arsenal, featuring on percussion, synthesiser and saxophone.
