Spandau Ballet are an English band formed in London in the late 1970s. The band were inspired by, and an integral part of, the New Romantic movement. They became one of the more successful groups to emerge during the New Romantic era. The band’s classic line-up features brothers Gary and Martin Kemp on guitars, vocalist Tony Hadley, saxophonist Steve Norman and drummer John Keeble.

The group’s debut single “To Cut a Long Story Short”, which reached No. 5 in the UK in 1980, was the first of ten UK top 10 hits, including a No. 1 single “True”, a No. 2 single “Gold”, and two No. 3 singles: “Chant No. 1” and “Only When You Leave”. The band have had eight UK top 10 albums, including three “greatest hits” compilations and an album of re-recorded material. At the height of their popularity in 1984, they received the Brit Award for technical excellence. The band split in 1990 and the members pursued solo careers, with both Kemp brothers winning acting roles. Since their reformation in 2009, the band have been recognised at the Q Awards and Gary Kemp’s songwriting has been honoured by the Ivor Novello Awards.

Diamond is the second studio album by Spandau Ballet. It was released on 5 March 1982 by Chrysalis Records. The album was promoted with the single “Chant No. 1 (I Don’t Need This Pressure On)”, which was released in 1981, a full year before the album, and it reached #3 in the UK Singles Chart. The last single released, “Instinction”, reached #10.
