According to the update Mike Hood posted on band's Facebook: 'So the new HOODS album is almost ready. It takes a lot of pain, hurt, anger, heart break, and above all love to write for me. It's been hell for the last 1+. I'm putting all that hurt into this like I always do and am creating something we all can share and relate to. HOODS you save and continue saving my life. "Pressure Makes Diamonds" and there you have it. Studio time on the way kids!'
