While Friday is generally ever working persons day of the week, today is a sad one as the very popular Doom/Hard Rock band Graveyard have announced that the journey together is over. The bands statement from the Official Facebook is below their logo. Check it out.
“Dark clouds above the graveyard today.
Due to the all so classic reason “differences within the band” the Graveyard is as of today officially closed. This is the unfortunate final decision we’ve had to make after going through a period of struggling n juggling with personal issues. Things have gone out of hand and now our energy is very low. As a direct result of this we’re sorry to say that all scheduled touring is cancelled.
Graveyard have always been more about the music than the talking and that approach is the way we intend to deal with this situation also. What we can say is that we don’t know if and when the Graveyard will re-open and return in full force.
Stay tuned, stay awesome & No endless night in sight.
Joakim, Axel, Truls, Jonatan”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly, while I enjoyed all the stuff that I heard from the band they were not an act that I got to see all that often. Historically speaking I think I only ever caught them twice in concert and that is far too little based on how good those times were. I know a lot of my Metal Inner Circle would go to see them wherever they were playing down here but with me it was more of a conflicting schedule sort of thing. At least we have the albums to remember them by and who knows, perhaps this breakup will make the guys realize that they should instead rethink the decision based on fan outrage. What do you readers think of the disbanding of Graveyard? Let me know in the comments section below.
