In 2010, Ben decided he was going to start working on his own material. 12 months later Bento was born. "Diamond Days" is 12 songs completely written and sung by Ben himself. Created from a collaberation of ideas collected over a number of years, he decided to do something which would be nothing at all like silverchair (or Tambalane), but would feature a distinctive Rock theme. “...I feel as if I’m freed up and can satisfy my own creative output and get about doing what makes sense for me at this point. It’s been a while in the making and I’m excited to finally share it”. You can find much more info on Bento and "Diamond Days" at WeAreBento.
