More Information

Before Gothenburg's Graveyard had their own brand of beer in Sweden, or won a Swedish Grammy for Best Hard Rock album, or landed on three Billboard charts and multiple "Best of 2011" lists with their album "Hisingen Blues," they caught the attention of Rolling Stone's David Fricke at SXSW in 2008. "They blew a few dozen minds," Fricke said, with their "unison-fuzz riffs" and "sharp rhythmic turnarounds - like a prog-rock Free or a nimbler Black Sabbath."

Four years and hundreds of tour stops later, Graveyard's new album, "Lights Out," reflects the diversity of their writing: "beautifully crafted hard rock" (Decibel Magazine) with a dose of soulful, "70s throwback" (Brooklyn Vegan) blues that sound "spontaneous and fresh" (Guitar World).

From the apocalyptic, riff-driven 'An Industry of Murder,' to the melancholy 'Slow Motion Countdown' and psychedelic 'Endless Night,' the album shows them ranging from ace rock lords to contemplative balladeers. Recorded entirely analog, "Lights Out" sears with social commentary; frontman Joakim Nilsson's versatile grit; and the "horrible beauty" (Blurt) of guitarist Jonatan Ramm's "instantly memorable riffs" (All Music).

Graveyard's incendiary shows have earned them a legion of devoted fans and a groundswell of acclaim. In 2012, they sold out nearly every date on their first headlining U.S. tour, (including NYC's Bowery Ballroom) and have previously shared stages with Motorhead, The Sword, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, and Clutch. The quartet which also includes Rikard Edlund (bass), and Axel Sjoberg (drums) will tour the U.S. in early 2013.
