Diamond Rings Expands Canada-Heavy World Tour, Releases New Video
Bedazzled popster Diamond Rings (aka John O'Regan) is well on his way to becoming one of Canada's hottest songwriters, with debut album Special Affections due out October 26 via Secret City and a string of eye-grabbing videos already burning up the Web. Now, O'Regan is getting set to support his LP with a world tour.

As previously reported, the jaunt includes a number of Ontario shows followed by a brief UK tour. Now, we know what O'Regan will be doing once he returns to this side of the Atlantic: heading to Western Canada for a series of dates in Alberta and BC, as well as making a number of U.S. appearances.

For the Ontario shows, O'Regan will be joined by fellow up-and-comers PS I Love You.

To mark the outing, Diamond Rings has unveiled his latest music video. This one's for new single "Something Else" and can be seen over in Click Hear or at the bottom of this page.
