Despite the fact that the band was gaining momentum elsewhere in the world, that didn't stop Columbia Canada from dropping the Diodes. Compounding matters, the band had a new hit single "Tired of Waking Up Tired" and a new album already in the can.
Releasedthen, is a name that can go two ways: The band was released from their original contract, and their follow-up was finally seeing the light of day, thanks to the efforts of Epic. Musically speaking, the second album had a slightly different feel, possibly because drummer John Hamilton had been replaced by Mike Lengyellbut more likely because the band had logged countless hours onstage in front of demanding crowds.
Rather than toughening up the band's sound, it drove them further into the world of pop -- piano takes a more prominent role here, and many of the songs have melodies you can actually hum along with "Weekend," to Red Rubber Ball - The Diodes - Released just one. One gripe is that though this album only contains ten songs, one of those "Red Rubber Ball" had already appeared on the previous album.
