Launch Dates For Third Graveyard Train Album Announced

Graveyard Train are a seven piece collective from Melbourne who are about to embark on their national tour for the launch of their new album "Hollow".

With the new album dropping on Friday May 11th, the band have just released I’m Gone, the first single from "Hollow" and its accompanying clip:

The initial idea for Graveyard Train was for seven men to sing in baritone, like men, about Werewolves, Vampires, Ghosts and the like over frenetic foot stomping country music. Seven men playing men’s instruments just as men were born to do. It was a whacky idea, it worked, things moved quickly and the band now boasts a fan base right across the world.

I’m Gone is currently the most downloaded song on Australian radio through AMRAP’s Air It – sitting at #1 on both their ‘Great Southern’ and ‘Now’ Charts, check it:

A rollicking stab of wild-west woe and stomping train-yard rhythms, I’m Gone bears all the hallmark Graveyard Train traits. That said, much like the upcoming album, the track also introduces a slightly wider approach than previous Graveyard Train releases. Remaining lyrically preoccupied with all things macabre, “Hollow” manages to capture the infamous live reputation and punchy story telling of the band but the drums are bit fatter and the guitars and psychedelia turned up just a notch.

More information on “Hollow” is to be announced but in the immediacy, the band have just announced the official album launch dates (with more TBC):

Once described as “horror country drunken bearded stompy chain smashy madness … ghost stories, murder ballads and tales of redemption crooned through melodies plucked directly from the afterlife”, Graveyard Train use drums, upright bass and guitars around a swirling mix of instruments with a long history of storytelling such as washboard, steel guitar, banjo, harmonica, whiskey and blood. As well as their infamous chain and hammer, it’s a winning combination that has seen them take their notorious live show throughout the US, Canada, UK, Europe and of course all over Australia, earning them legions of diehard fans along the way.

They have sold out venues such as The Corner Hotel, The HI-FI and The Spiegeltent and been named festival highlights by organizers and punters alike everywhere from Golden Plains (VIC), Meredith Music Festival (VIC), Woodford Folk Festival (QLD), The Vancouver Folk Festival, Hillside (CA), Port Fairy Folk Fest (VIC), Boogie Fest (VIC), Blue Mountains Fest (NSW), Wave Rock (WA) through to the Edinburgh Fringe Fest – to name but a few. Instantly at home on any stage, from the neck tattooed rockabilly in Sydney to the farmer in Tamworth, the derelict punk in Belgium or the hippie in Toronto, everyone ends up singing along.

The live show is only part of the Graveyard Train story though. To date they have released 2 full length albums, both to critical acclaim: “The Serpent & The Crow” (Afterdark Records 2009). And “The Drink The Devil & The Dance” (Spooky Records 2010). Both Albums received unanimous praise in the press and “The Drink The Devil & The Dance” was awarded ‘No. 1 album of 2010’ by PBS 106.7 and peaked at number 2 on the Australian Country Music Digital Charts.
