On December 18, Kati Rausch of Music Interview Corner conducted an interview with Jonatan Larocca Ramm (guitar, vocals) and Axel Sjöberg (drums) of Swedish blues rockers GRAVEYARD backstage at the Essigfabrik venue in Cologne, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.
GRAVEYARD‘s third album, “Lights Out”, sold around 2,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 6 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Lights Out” was released on November 6 via Nuclear Blast Records. The “Goliath” single preceded the full-length CD on September 21 as a digital download and on seven-inch vinyl. The single includes a special non-album track, “Leaving You”. The “Goliath” seven-inch vinyl was issued in four different colors, featuring four different cover artworks.
GRAVEYARD bassist Rikard Edlund is sitting out the band’s current tour due to “personal problems with addiction.” The group is playing all shows with a stand-in bass player.
GRAVEYARD will kick off a U.S. headlining tour on January 23 in Boston, Massachusetts. The trek will feature special appearances in Seattle, Washington and Houston, Texas from THE DEVIL’S BLOOD and ROYAL THUNDER.
