“Who is this group that promises nothing but good grooves and chaos? Diluted of course my dear friends! With their EP, Never Fit In, you will find yourself dancing and shaking more than the time you tried to reenact the bar dancing scene from Coyote Ugly!”

Rochester City Newspaper review of NEVER FIT IN

“The cover artwork by drummer Dusty West for Diluted’s debut EP, “Never Fit In,” is in many ways a perfect package for the tunes. Colorful and in conflict, the illustrated montage of chaos pulls no punches and leaves room for the ensuing aggression… The best songs on this five-track EP — like “Hipster Helmets and Harpsichords” and “Sledge Hovercraft” — utilize high levels of energy that’ll make you want to mosh as if a weasel was shoved down your pants.” 

-Roman Divezur, Rochester City Newspaper
