Graveyard was formed in Gothenburg 2007. Joakim and Rikard played together in a band called Norrsken nack in Örebro.It didn’t take long before things started to happen for Graveyard and before we knew it we were about to record and release our first album. (released on Transubstans in Europe and Tee Pee in North America). After the release of the first album we did what most ordinary rockband do to promote ourselves and our albums – extensive touring in crappy vans all across Europe and the US.
Now that we have got our second album Hisingen blues out (Nuclear Blast and Universal in Sweden) we are believe it or not excited to bring the new songs out to the public. By doing this we will hopefully get to see some of our favorite places again and also visit other countries and continents to which the first album didn’t take us – cos no matter how much fun it is to write and record albums it’s is in the live environment that we feel totally at home as a band.
The musical plan and an important piece of the puzzle
….. When we started the band we did so without a plan ever to come this far – but with that said we started Graveyard with the ambition and intention to take it as far as we could. Graveyard as a band wasn’t gonna be about mocking around in the rehearsal room, cos we knew what we wanted to do and that we also had the musical skills and the dedication to write and record great songs that could and would take us places.
But don’t think that we are happy with Hisingen and that’s it, in this department we are ready and can’t wait to get started on the next album. We just need to get a “little” bit of touring done before we get started – so as far as the bands “one year plan” goes there will be no rest for the wicked.
Burning up in fine style, Sweden’s Spiders mines a hard late “˜60s tough rock sound with a touch of proto-metal and a somewhat sinister motif to re-ignite the Scando garage scene once more.
Spiders was formed in Gothenburg in February 2010. A few months later the band appeared at one of Sweden’s most successful music festivals, Way Out West. It was around this time Spiders for the first time as a band stepped into the studio with producer Don Ahlsterberg (The Soundtrack of Our Lives, International Noise Conspiracy) and started recording. Since then they released Vinyl on Kemado Recordsand De:Nihil Records.
Their debut album “Flash Point” will be available October 5th through Crusher Records.
