The form of DS

   The band was formed in early 2011. The idea to form a band begun when a group of friend Faisal, Arif, Ejal, Am and Wan decided to jamm for the sake of have fun and release study tension. They cover a few pop punk and punk rock genre of songs from the international and local artist such as All Time Low, Blink 182, Sum 41, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Bunkface, Hujan, and many more.

  The jamm session became boring with playing the same song, so they make up their mind to write they own material and produces their own song. And the Diamond Skies is formed with Faisal, Arif, Ejal, Am and Wan in line up.
They write the first material 'Tetap Berdiri' and many more songs, but they decide to use this song for their single, and then they upgrade it for better quality, and finally, it became their first single.

  A few month later Wan leave the band, and Keey join the band in the position of 2nd guitar. He's was in lots of band before and much experience. They share all their knowledge and blend all of it as a band. With this line up the band continue to write songs and performing until today.

  Since DS get involve in local music scene, they had success in performing through out all Malaysia and hoping that their music will continue to advance in the future.
