Risen from the dead!

Risen from the dead!

Back in September 2016, Graveyard all of a sudden announced that it was going on indefinite hiatus. The band seemed at least somewhat hopeful that it would reunite sooner rather than later, and it has!

The band reveals that it has parted ways with drummer Axel Sjöberg, and really has no intention of airing its dirty laundry over why. Graveyard says it'll continue on with shows and a new album wiht a new drummer, so hooray! Graveyard has returned!

Here's the statement in full.

“A new day rising,

“Living isn’t always easy and playing in a band doesn’t tend to make the noble art of living well any easier. Things weren’t working and in the end a change in the line-up was the only option for our return. Graveyard’s journey will continue with a yet to be named new future drummer and the reasons behind this change of scenery are something that we don’t want, wish or will comment on. We’re gonna leave it be with Axel’s own words: “Word on the street is that there is a job opening in the drummer’s section.” We wish Axel all the best and you can follow his next move with his already set to fly new outfit BIG KIZZ.

“We’d also like to apologize to each and every one of you out there for putting you through these uncertain Graveyard times. With that said we’re beyond glad to announce that as of today the Graveyard is officially re-opened for business. Albums will be recorded, shows will be played and all of this hopefully for a long, long time to come.
