Paper Diamond (Alex Botwin) has undoubtedly reached an exciting point in his career. The creative producer from Colorado announced via social media earlier today a slew of exciting news to let the world know he’s been hard at work. One of these announcements unveiled Rain Gang, a mysterious new community that seems to be dedicated to and for Paper Diamond fans. The website is still in teaser-mode, and the only thing you can do at the moment is subscribe to join (which we did), but we’re looking forward to see what Paper Diamond has up his sleeve for the Gang.

“Take Me Away (Unreleased Preview)”

Another piece of news was the much-anticipated announcement of Paper Diamond’s new EP Rain Drops and a preview of a track on the EP, “Take Me Away.” In an interview with ClubPlanet, Alex explained, “I think that a lot of my music currently is about escapism and about getting out of daily life and letting your mind go to a place that is somewhere else.” That’s definitely something we can appreciate, and, after listening to “Take Me Away”, we’re about ready to escape somewhere and listen to more of Alex’s music too.


Paper Diamond Tour: Rain Drops 2015

Finally, there’s nothing like debuting a new EP without accompanying it with a tour announcement! From January through March next year, Paper Diamond will be hitting 33+ cities across the nation on the Rain Drops Tour 2015. In light of all this pre-tour hype (and an entire tour-titled community that was just created), we’re guessing Paper Diamond’s going to be pulling out all the stops this time around. Dancing Astronaut has some additional insight on what to expect at a show.

Discounted presale tickets to the Rain Drops Tour officially go on sale tomorrow, November 20th, through Tixr. Links to all cities are below.
