  GRAVEYARD TO SUPPORT SOUNDGARDEN ON UK/IRELAND TOUR
23rd May 2013

graveyard



Swedish bluesy psychedelic rockers Graveyard, have just been announced to support the incredible US grunge legends Soundgarden on their upcoming UK/Ireland tour dates in September.

Graveyard comment: "We've been pretty f**king fortunate with the bands we've had the honour to open for. It's like taking a walk through our record collections, or just through rock history. When you list some of them, it comes off as pretty unreal - Iron Maiden, Deep Purple and Motörhead. And now - Soundgarden! Not so superunknown guys these days. And with the words of a Californian rock dude: Pretty f**king bad ass musicians that can deliver a bunch of face melting jams and shred like there's no tomorrow!

"There isn't really much more to say than that. Of course we're super excited to head out on tour with Soundgarden. In a way it's quite logical. If you think about what the roots of their and our music are. We certainly got one or two things in common there, so hopefully people will see it as good match making?"

16-Sep-2013 IRL - Dublin 02 Academy
18-Sep-2013 UK - London Brixton Academy

Check out what the press think of their latest studio album, 'Lights Out':

Classic Rock Magazine: "Graveyard have become a cause celebre for those in thrall to that cherished pre-digital beards 'n' bell bottoms aesthetic, not least because they temper their obvious debt to the past with songwriting of the highest quality."

The Sun Newspaper: "The refreshingly rough, mono-esque production is a delight... Graveyards latest shift is worth staying up for!"

Terrorizer Magazine: "...hauntingly eerie, blending minor tones with riffs that vary from toe-tappingly catchy to frantically disjointed, but never fails to be richly evocative and undeniably emotive in its husky southern-sounding stomp."

Rock Sound Magazine: "'Lights Out' is still positively brimming with gargantuan riffs and superbly soulful vocal hooks that are certain to please any fan of an even-slightly vintage persuasion."

Ben Ward - Orange Goblin: "The big question now is: how the hell do they follow an album like 'Lights Out'!"





WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
